Application Received: 30 October 2013

Consultation Period From: 11 November 2013

Decision Date: 20 December 2013

Case Officer: Stephen Holloway

Status: Appeal Decided

Decision: Refused - Planning

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The application site lies outside any development boundary as defined under policy GD1 of the Wychavon District Local Plan 2006. Whilst adjoining the defined settlement of Chiildswickham, the village has a low level of service provision and public transport links to other settlements. The proposed development would be highly reliant upon car transport modes to access local services and as such would go against the provisions of the National Planning Policy framework for the following reasons:-

    - it is not considered as a pattern of growth to make the fullest possible use of public transport, walking and cycling (para. 17);

    - it would not support the reasonable use of sustainable modes of transport (para. 30);

    - it would not support the move to a low carbon future by planning for new development in locations which reduce greenhouse gas emissions (para. 95)

    For these reasons the proposed development fails to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development as defined in the National Planning Policy Framework as well as being contrary to policy GD1 of the Wychavon District Local Plan 2006 and policy SWDP2 of the emerging South Worcestershire Development Plan, which both seek to direct new development to defined towns and settlements.

    The council has evidence to demonstrate a five year housing land supply as required under section 6 of the National Planning Policy Framework. Having regard to the provisions of paragraph 14 and 49 of the National Planning Policy Framework, housing applications should be considered in the context of the presumption in favour of sustainable development. Paragraph 14 states that where a development plan is out-of-date, this presumption means granting permission unless any adverse impacts of doing so would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits, when assessed against the policies in the Framework taken as a whole. Having regard to:-

    - the housing land supply situation; and - the provisions of the whole Framework

    the council consider the adverse impacts of allowing the development (as set out above) would significantly and demonstrably outweigh the benefits.
