Case Officer: Gavin Greenhow

Status: Decided

Decision: Refused - Change of Use

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. The application submissions include a Phase One Habitat Survey by Worcestershire Wildlife Consultancy, which concludes that the building offers low roosting opportunities for bats during the summer and that a minimum of two dusk emergence surveys are undertaken between late May and late September to confirm the presence or absence of roosting bats. Without further surveys and being party to the findings it cannot be confirmed if any species of bat use the site, or how many. The Council is unable, therefore, to determine whether the proposed development would result in significant harm to interests of biodiversity through adverse effects or risk of adverse effect to protected species (bats). Also, without survey results to identify the significance of the ecological importance of the application site, the Council is unable to determine whether significant harm can be prevented, adequately mitigated against or compensated for. As such, insufficient information has been provided to ascertain whether the proposed development would be in accordance with policy ENV6 of the Wychavon District Local Plan, the EU Habitats Directive, as well as guidance contained in Circular 06/05, the National Planning Policy Framework and the associated National Planning Policy Guidance.

  2. The following plans are relevant to this decision:
