Decision details

S/2273/14/OL - Fulbourn (Land at Teversham Road)

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

All planning applications for Fulbourn considered by the Planning Committee since May 2003. For individual reports, please click on the “Meetings” tab above. For further details on all Fulbourn planning applications, please visit our Planning Applications Database and select Fulbourn from the drop-down list of parishes.

Decision:

The Planning Committee refused the application because it did not represent sustainable development, and conflicted with the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework, for the following reasons:

 

1.     the proposed development’s adverse visual impact on the landscape character, setting of Fulbourn Conservation Area and ecological and open space interests resulting in demonstrable and significant harm which, on balance, outweighed the benefits which would have arisen from delivering up to 110 dwellings (30% of which would have been affordable at a 50/50 rented to shared ownership split) in a village well served by services and facilities and with good access to public transport links; and

 

2.     The absence of a clear timetable, thus giving rise to uncertainty that the scheme, in its entirety, could be delivered within a five-year period.
