By six votes to four, the Planning Committee approved the application subject to the Conditions set out in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development.

 

(Councillors Bradnam, Cahn, Fane, Hawkins, Rippeth and Wright voted to approve the application. Councillors Henry Batchelor, Heylings, Roberts and Heather Williams voted to refuse it. Councillor Richard Williams was not present and did not vote.)

11/12/2020 - S/4252/19/FL - Fowlmere (Cherry Tree Field, Shepreth Road)

Since the committee report had been written, letters had been received from solicitors acting on behalf of Fowlmere Parish Council in respect of the ‘fallback’ position namely, the previously agreed Class Q for two dwellings.  Members had considered that issue to be crucial in approving the application on 11 November 2020.

 

In reply to these letters, the applicant’s solicitor had submitted responses that were completely contrary to the views expressed by the Parish Council’s legal advisor.

 

The detailed legal arguments in this correspondence require further consideration by officers so that Members can make a robust, informed decision.

 

By affirmation, the Committee deferred the application to enable officers to provide Members with a report that takes into account all of the new points made.


13/11/2020 - S/4252/19/FL - Fowlmere (Cherry Tree Field, Shepreth Road)

12/06/2020 - S/4081/19/FL - Fowlmere (Hideaway, Lynch Lane)

Upon a vote being conducted by roll call and by seven votes to three, the Committee refused the application contrary to the recommendation in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development.

The proposal therefore conflicted with Policy HQ/1 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2019. Final wording of the Decision Notice would be drafted by officers in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Planning Committee.

 

Councillors John Batchelor, Cahn and Fane voted to approve the application. Councillors Bradnam, Heylings, Milnes, Rippeth, Roberts, Heather Williams and Wright voted to refuse. Councillor Ellington had left the meeting and did not vote.
