  • Garages off Rock Lane, Ludlow, SY8 1SF (17/01199/FUL) Erection of 4No bungalows following demolition of 21No garages. Decision: That, planning permission be granted as per the Officer’s recommendation, subject to: The conditions as set out in Appendix 1 of the report, subject to the following additional condition: Before the bungalows are first occupied the rear and side garden areas to the properties shall be laid out in accordance with details of the finished levels to those garden areas, of any patios/decking to be provided within them and of the means of enclosure to those garden areas, which have first been approved in writing by the local planning authority. The approved levels, patios/decking and means of enclosure shall thereafter be retained for the lifetime of the development. Reason: In the interests of the residential amenities of the occupants of the bungalows.  
  • Eastville, Chirbury, SY15 6BH (17/01352/FUL) Erection of extension to dwelling. Decision: That, planning permission be granted as per the Officer’s recommendation, subject to the Conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, subject to the deletion of the following wording as set out in Condition No.4:        “in the absence of any further specific permission in writing from the local planning authority.”
  • Proposed dwelling south of The Sidings, Snailbeach (17/01360/REM) Approval of reserved matters (appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) pursuant to outline permission 14/05151/OUT for the erection of one dwelling and alterations. Decision: That, subject to the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, planning permission be granted as per the officer’s recommendation.
  • Housing development site, Poyner Close, Ludlow, SY8 1RQ (17/01372/FUL) Erection of 1No open market bungalow (amended description). Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons: It is acknowledged that the proposed development would be in a sustainable location, contributing to the social and economic roles of sustainable development through the provision of a small bungalow, which is a type of accommodation for which there is an acknowledged need in Ludlow.  However, the proposal, by reason of the loss of trees and open space, would remove features that make significant contributions to the character and quality of the townscape and local amenity.  Consequently, the proposed development would not satisfy the environmental role of sustainable development as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework and would be contrary to Core Strategy Policies CS6, CS8 and CS17, and SAMDev Plan Policies MD2 and MD12.
  • Land at Sidney Road, Ludlow (17/01387/FUL) Erection of seven bungalows for social housing. Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons: It is acknowledged that the proposed development would be in a sustainable location, contributing to the social and economic roles of sustainable development through the provision of small affordable bungalows, which is a type of accommodation for which there is an acknowledged need in Ludlow.  However, the proposal, by reasons of the loss of the large Maple tree, which is the subject of a Tree Preservation Order, and reduction in the area of open space, would remove features that make significant contributions to the character and quality of the townscape and local amenity.  In addition, the proposed footpath layout within the development, with the path linking Charlton Rise with Sidney Road passing very close to the front doors of the bungalows, is likely to be used by the public and would adversely affect the amenity and perception of security for the occupants of the bungalows.  Consequently, the proposed development would not satisfy the environmental role of sustainable development as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework and would be contrary to Core Strategy Policies CS6, CS8 and CS17, and SAMDev Plan Policies MD2 and MD12.
  • Pumping station, The Moors, Diddlebury, SY7 9JZ (17/03071/TEL) Installation of a 15 metre high monopole accommodating 3no antennas and 2no 600mm dishes with 3no equipment cabinets all located within a 7 metre by 7metre stock proof fenced compound.
