Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 11/11/2020 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 13/11/2020

Effective from: 11/11/2020

Decision:

By eight votes to two, the Committee refused the application contrary to the recommendation in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development. Members agreed the reason for refusal as being that, by virtue of the bulk, size, location and choice of materials, the proposal would have an unacceptable visual impact on the character and appearance of the Linton Conservation Area. The level of harm would be less than substantial but there were no clear public benefits that could be considered as outweighing that harm. The proposal would therefore fail to comply with the requirements of Policy HQ1 of the South Cambridgeshire District Local Plan 2018, the National Planning Policy Framework and Section 72 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

 

 

(Councillors Cahn and Hawkins voted to approve the application. Councillors John Batchelor, Bradnam, Fane, Rippeth, Roberts, Heather Williams, Richard Williams and Wright voted to refuse.)
