Case Officer: Emma Thompson
Decision: Refused - Change of Use
This decision is subject to the following conditions:
It is considered that the construction of a hard surfaced tennis court with a fence enclosure, in the position shown, would result in the introduction of an obtrusive and alien feature into what is generally an agricultural landscape in a rural location, on the edge of the village. The proposal would therefore be visually intrusive and would be harmful to the historic setting of this traditional group of curtilage listed agricultural buildings and the open character of the area. The proposal is therefore contrary to Section 66 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, Policy CTC19 of the approved Worcestershire County Structure Plan, Policy CB5 of the approved Wychavon District Local Plan, and Policies ENV1, GD2 and ENV16 of the Wychavon District Local Plan Review Revised Deposit.
The siting of a tennis court, in the position proposed, in close proximity to the site boundary and neighbouring property, would adversely affect the amenities of the occupiers of the adjoining residential property through noise and disturbance. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy GD2 of the Wychavon District Local Plan Review Revised Deposit.
