By ten votes to nil, the Committee refused the application contrary to the recommendation in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development. Members agreed the reasons for refusal as being


1.     That the proposed development site lay outside the development framework and was therefore not consistent with Policies S/7 and S/10 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018; and


2.     That the development would result in the loss of an employment site, contrary to Policy E/14 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018, and there was insufficient evidence that the existing factory had been marketed in a suitable manner.


(Councillor Bradnam did not vote.)
