    Minutes:

    Application No:        3/18/2396/FUL

    Development:          Use of existing caravan site for human habitation to include both holiday and residential purpose

    Updates

    A typo was noted in the report under ‘Relevant Planning History’ at the top of Page 12 where the Application No should be 3/09/0568.

    Public Speaking

    Mrs P King, the agent for the applicant, spoke in support of the application stating that the proposal would not cause more harm to the heathlands as there was no material change between holiday use and residential use and the site was already allowed to be used 365 days a year. She stated that they would provide additional conditions to prevent harm such as no children on the site and restricting residential use to lodges 1, 2, 5, and 7.

    Mr B Carroll, the applicant, spoke in support of the application stating that when he purchased the property he was informed by the freeholders that he could live in it year round and the clause was crossed out from the original lease. He highlighted the impact to the heathlands caused by holiday makers stating that residential use would be less harmful.

    Debate

    Some Members agreed with the officer recommendation highlighting the harm to the SSSI and heathlands. It was felt that if the proposal was allowed it would set a precedent for several others in similar situations. Refusal was then proposed and seconded.

    Other Members raised concern with the current Planning Condition on the site not having a definitive restriction on the length of occupancy and felt that there would be no additional harm if it was used as a person’s sole place of residence as opposed to having different occupants over 365 days a year.

    The motion to refuse was put to the vote and agreed:-

    RESOLVED that Application No 3/18/2396/FUL be REFUSED as per the officer recommendation.

    Voting: 5:3

     

    Cllr D Morgan joined the meeting at 10.15am.
