Case Officer: David Addison
Decision: Refused - Outline
This decision is subject to the following conditions:
The proposed development would be in an isolated rural location. The development of the site for a dwelling would be incompatible with the principles of sustainable development as set out in the Framework which seeks to both concentrate most new residential development to sites within or adjacent to urban areas and also to reduce reliance upon private motor vehicles as a means of transport. Given the location of the site, it is likely that the proposal will result in an increase in private motor vehicle movements locally. The proposed development would thereby be incompatible with the advice and guidance contained in paragraph 55 of the Framework, as well as policies GD1 and GD2 of the adopted Wychavon District Local Plan. It is not considered that the benefits of a house in the context of the District's housing land supply outweigh the disadvantages of the scheme.
