Status: Decided

Decision: Refused - Change of Use

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The approval of this application for a temporary rural workers mobile home for use in connection with an established cattery business would be contrary to Local Plan Policy COM8 due to the existence of an existing residential property on the site. As such, the development would result in the creation of an additional residential unit within an area of open countryside where there is a presumption against additional residential dwellings without sufficient justification. The applicants' personal circumstances fail to provide sufficient justification to depart from development plan policies or allow the approval of a second residential unit of this site. The application is considered to be contrary to Wychavon District Local Plan Policy COM8 as well as the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework.
