The following decisions were made by Shropshire Council’s South planning committee at its meeting at Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Tuesday 19 December 2017.

  • Woodcote Wood, Weston Heath, TF11 8RS (17/03661/EIA) Proposed new access & installation of processing plant to facilitate sand& gravel extraction on adjacent Woodcote Wood site. Decision: That applications 17/03661/EIA and SC/MB2005/0337/BR be deferred to a future meeting in order to await the submission of the Highway Safety Audit in written form and to enable Shropshire Council’s Highway Officers to consider and comment upon it.
  • Woodcote Wood, Weston Heath, TF11 8RS (SC/MB2005/0336/BR) Proposed new access & installation of processing plant to facilitate sand & gravel extraction on adjacent Woodcote Wood site. Decision: That applications 17/03661/EIA and SC/MB2005/0337/BR be deferred to a future meeting in order to await the submission of the Highway Safety Audit in written form and to enable Shropshire Council’s Highway Officers to consider and comment upon it.
  • Proposed dwelling to the north of 37 High Street, Broseley (16/05697/FUL) Erection of a detached 3 bedroom dwelling. Decision: That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted subject to the conditions as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, subject to Condition No. 4 being amended to include the following additional sentence: The soakaways shall be installed in accordance with the approved details before the dwelling is first occupied and thereafter maintained in place.
  • Gestiana, Woodlands Road, Broseley, TF12 5PU (17/01834/FUL) Demolition of existing dwelling and construction of  5no. bungalows with rooms in roof space (Amended description). Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons: The proposed development, by reason of the close proximity of the dwellings on plots 2, 3 and 5 to site boundaries and their fenestration, would adversely affect the privacy currently enjoyed by the occupants of the dwellings at 27 Woodlands Road; The Willows, King Street; Spring Meadow, King Street; and 81a King Street. The proposal would therefore harm the residential amenity of the occupants of the neighbouring properties, contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy policy CS6 and paragraph 17 of the National Planning Policy Framework which seeks to secure a good standard of amenity for all existing and future occupants of land and buildings; and: 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 two-bedroomed dwellings within the town. However, the proposal, by reason of the intensity of the development subdividing the site into five residential plots, would not reflect the character of development along this section of Woodlands Road or that to be found in the Conservation Area that immediately adjoins the site. Consequently the proposal would not promote or reinforce local distinctiveness and would neither preserve nor enhance the setting of the Broseley Conservation Area. The proposal therefore would not satisfy the environmental role of sustainable development set out in the National Planning Policy Framework and would be contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy polices CS6 and CS17, and Site Allocations and Management of Development (SAMDev) Plan policies MD2, MD13 and S4.1:1.    
  • Proposed residential development south east of Kemberton Cottage, Mill Lane, Kemberton (17/03311/FUL) Erection of an affordable dwelling. Decision: That, as per the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be granted subject to: A Section 106 Legal Agreement to ensure the dwelling remains affordable in perpetuity; That planning officers be granted delegated powers to attach appropriate conditions relating to the construction of the access, the positioning of any access gates and to ensure that the existing site boundary wall is re-aligned on the visibility splays; and 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. 5:  “unless otherwise approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.”
  • 9, 10 and 11 Lower Forge Cottages, Eardington, Bridgnorth, WV16 5LQ (17/00298/FUL) Reconfiguration and upgrade of existing cottages including erection of single storey and two storey extensions to form 3 larger dwellings. Decision: That, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, planning permission be refused for the following reasons: The proposed single story extension, by reason of its additional height in comparison with a wall or fence which could be erected on the southern property boundary line as ‘permitted development, would have an overbearing impact on the adjoining neighbouring property (no.8) and would adversely affect the outlook from the ground floor accommodation of that neighbouring property. The proposal would therefore harm the residential amenity of the occupants of the neighbouring property, contrary to Shropshire Core Strategy policy CS6 and paragraph 17 of the National Planning Policy Framework which seeks to secure a good standard of amenity for all existing and future occupants of land and buildings.
