Planning Application for Back Lane Refused

posted 22 Dec 2017, 09:31 by KGHG Admin

Good news - the application to build five houses on a field down Back Lane has been refused on the following grounds; thanks to all who wrote in objecting - it does make a difference.


APPLICATION TYPE:               Full permission

APPLICATION NO:                  6.103.176.FUL  17/04543/FUL

PROPOSAL:                                Erection of 5 dwellings.

LOCATION:                                Land Comprising Field At 446122 456997 Back Lane Green Hammerton North Yorkshire


I refer to your representations relating to the above application which were taken into account in reaching a decision on the proposal.


I write to advise you that it was decided to refuse the application.


Reason(s) for refusal:



1           The proposed development of 5 houses is out of character with the form of the village extending beyond the current and emerging plans development limit. The proposal would result in an adverse effect on an important boundary identified with the Conservation area appraisal conflicting therefore with Core Strategy Polices SG3, SG4 and EQ2 together saved policies HD3, HD20 and the Green Hammerton Conservation Area Appraisal.


2           The proposed development would use best agricultural land contrary to paragraph 112 of the NPPF. It would also fail to provide an enhancement to the character of the village form and historic environment contrary to paragraph 7 of the NPPF and EQ2 of the Core Strategy Policy together with the Councils Conservation Area Appraisal 2009.


3           The works required to be carried out to the highway to make the site safe for vehicle users coming to and from the site is excessive and would result in harm to the visual amenity of the area. Moreover, some of the highway improvement works required are on land outside of the applicant's control. The access to the site is substandard and the intensification of the use of the site is potentially dangerous and contrary to National Planning Policy Framework paragraph 32 and Core Strategy Policy SG4.
