Brettenham: Land East of Arlington Way, West of A1088: Reference: 3PL/2017/0578/O pdf icon PDF 120 KB

This application was considered at the Planning Committee meeting on 1st October 2018. The application was recommended for refusal for the following reason(s):


The proposed development would result in the loss of a substantial number of preserved trees which are of group value. National and local planning guidance states that, development should recognise the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside and enhance the natural local environment and the loss of protected trees should only be permitted in exceptional circumstances, if suitable compensatory measures exist, and where there are wider public benefits. It is not considered that suitable compensatory measures could be provided or that the wider public benefits outweigh the substantial harm.


The proposal was therefore contrary to national guidance of the NPPF (2019), in particular Paragraph 170 and Policies CP6, CP11 and DC.12.


Members voted (7:2) to refuse planning permission in accordance with the officers' recommendation.
