22/01229/FP Land Adjacent To Red Brick Cottage, The Street, Kelshall, Royston, Hertfordshire, SG8 9SQ

Decision Maker: Planning Control Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


RESOLVED: That application 22/01229/FP be REFUSED planning permission due to the following reasons; the scheme is considered contrary to Local Plan policies that inform on appropriate development in Rural Area beyond the Green Belt. The proposal fails to comply with any of the criteria within Policies SP2 and CGB1 of the Local Plan, as the proposal is not considered to fall within the remit of infill development given the sizable and spacious nature of the plot. Moreover, the scheme would be harmful to the character and appearance of the village and would be at odds with the sporadic pattern of development that makes up the settlement of Kelshall. The proposal is therefore deemed contrary to Policies SP2, D1 and CGB1 of the Local Plan, as well as Section 12 of the NPPF.
