  • Proposed retail unit east of Unit 8, Meole Brace Retail Park, Shrewsbury (17/00405/FUL) Removal of existing structures and construction of an A1 (retail) unit; all associated works including car park alterations, access, servicing and landscaping. Decision: That consideration of the application be deferred to a future meeting of this committee for further information in relation to the following: The estimated additional vehicle movements; The timing of the traffic survey; Access of emergency vehicles; and the implementation of improvement works within the retail park approved under a separate planning application.
  • Development east of Stoneycroft, Valeswood, Little Ness, Shrewsbury (17/04319/REM) Approval of reserved matters (access) pursuant to permission 15/00560/OUT for the erection of one dwelling. 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.
  • Proposed caravan storage, land north west of Whiston Farm, Cardeston, Ford (17/05153/FUL) Application under Section 73A of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 for the change of use of agricultural land to secured compound area for storage of caravans and container storage. Decision: That planning permission be refused as per the officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

    1. The proposal will have a significant detrimental visual and landscape impact on the surrounding countryside, which cannot be adequately mitigated by means of additional planting. It is considered that development on this site has a significant detrimental visual impact when viewed from the A458 public highway and surrounding public footpaths. As such the proposal is considered contrary to Policies CS5, CS6, and CS17 of the Shropshire Core Strategy, Policies MD2, MD7b and MD12 of the SAMDev and the overall aims and objectives of the NPPF in relationship to sustainable development. 
    2. The proposal does not constitute farm business diversification, and it is considered that the significant detrimental visual and landscape impacts do not outweigh any economic benefits as a result of the development. As such the proposal is considered contrary to Policies CS5, CS13 and CS17 of the Shropshire Core Strategy and Policies MD2, MD7b and MD12 of the SAMDev and the overall aims and objectives of the NPPF in relationship to sustainable development.
