Case Officer: David Addison

Status: Decided

Decision: Refused - Planning

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. It is considered that without details of the volume of material to be imported and the number and frequency of associated HGV trips, it is not possible to fully determine the scale of the operation and the impact on the local road network. Consequently, the full impact on the amenities of the occupiers of the existing residential properties along both Haye Lane and the access track serving the site, cannot be fully assessed. The proposed development is therefore considered contrary to saved Policies GD2 and COM14 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006)

  2. It is not considered that the submitted plans and information accurately depict the existing site topography, and as such the visual impact of the proposals cannot be fully assessed. However, notwithstanding this, the permanent retention of a 2175 cubic metre clay bund is not considered to safeguard or enhance the character of surrounding natural environment. As such, the proposed development is considered contrary to saved Policies GD2 and ENV1 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006)

  3. Without details on the source sites for the imported clay and details of surface water run-off measures from the proposed 870 sq.m site for clay storage, it is not considered that a full assessment can be made on the likely impacts from the proposed development on the wider biodiversity of the surrounding landscape. As such, it is considered that the proposed development is contrary to saved Policies GD2 and ENV7 of the Wychavon District Local Plan (June 2006), together with paragraph 120 of the Framework.
