Case Officer: Phil Wears

Status: Decided

Decision: Refused - Change of Use

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The development as proposed will remain harmful to the generally attractive, undeveloped character of the countryside by reason of visual impact, the character of the proposed planting, and the impact of vehicle movements. It is therefore in conflict with Worcestershire County Structure Plan policies D16, D30 and CTC1, Wychavon District Local Plan policies AG13, AG15, AG16 and Wychavon District Local Plan Review - Revised Deposit policies GD2, ECON8, RES10, ENV1 and SUR4.

  2. The applicant has not satisfactorily demonstrated that the continuation of the use would not cause harm to the amenities of residents nearby by reason of noise (in particular from outside working), appearance, and occasional exposure to solvent odour. It is therefore with conflict with Worcestershire County Structure Plan policies D16 and D30, Wychavon District Local Plan policies AG13, AG15 and AG16, and Wychavon District Local Plan policies GD2, ECON8 and RES10.

  3. The applicant has not satisfactorily demonstrated that the continuation of the use would not give rise to pollution from contaminated surface water run-off, and is therefore in conflict with Wychavon District Local Plan policies AG13, AG15, AG16 and BC11, and Wychavon District Local Plan Review - Revised Deposit policies GD2, ECON8, RES10 and ENV20.

  4. By reason of its likely incompatibility with agricultural operations on the farm, the use is contrary to policy ECON8(b) in the Wychavon District Local Plan Review - Revised Deposit.

  5. With reference to the cross-boundary policy zone identified in the adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance entitled 'Lorries in the Vale of Evesham', the applicant has not satisfactorily demonstrated that the level of HGV movements generated in particular those through Willersey and Weston-Sub-Edge, is not increased significantly when compared with those generated, if the building had remained in agricultural use. Neither has the applicant satisfactorily demonstrated a need for the use to be sited in this location, together with any special reasons for this location which outweight the harm caused by increased HGV traffic.' The continuation of the use would therefore be contrary to Worcestershire County Structure Plan Policies D29 and T1, Wychavon District Local Plan Policy AG13, Wychavon District Local Plan Review Policies GD1, GD2 and ECON5, and the Supplementary Planning Guidance entitled "Lorries in the Vale of Evesham".
