3.1.8 The application was considered by planning committee in March 1994 and was
recommended for approval by Officers. However, Members of Planning Committee
resolved to refuse permission and the application went to appeal.
3.1.9 The reasons for refusal were as follows:
1. The proposed development would result in an increase in the concentration of
traffic movements within the vicinity of the site which would be likely to create
additional dangers to users of the highway and be prejudicial to the amenities
currently enjoyed by the occupiers of nearby properties.
2. The proposal would, if permitted, result in the loss of an area of green open
space which currently provides a valuable facility for informal recreation and
which, in view of the adequacy of the housing land supply within the District,
is considered to be undesirable.
3. The site, by reason of its steeply sloping nature, is considered to be unsuitable
for the development as proposed in that it would be likely to give rise to the
movement of substantial amounts of excavated material to the detriment of
the amenities of the locality.
4. The proposal, would if permitted, result in an over-intensive form of
development in a manner detrimental to the amenities of the locality
