Parrs Lane Redrow Appeal Defeated By ARG

Aughton Residents Group 2012 completed the double with news of the Redrow decision “Appeal Decision Inquiry Held on 30-31 January and 1-2 February 2018 Site visit made on 2 February 2018 by Kevin Ward BA (Hons) MRTPI an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State Decision date: 22 March 2018

Appeal Ref: APP/P2365/W/15/3132596 Land to the north west of Parrs Lane, Aughton, Lancashire. The appeal is made under section 78 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 against a refusal to grant outline planning permission. The appeal is made by Redrow Homes Ltd against the decision of West Lancashire Borough Council. The application Ref 2015/0329/OUT, dated 30 March 2015, was refused by notice dated 30 June 2015. The development proposed is residential development of up to 250 dwellings with access. This decision supersedes that issued on 9 December 2016 which was quashed by order of the High Court.

Decision 1. The appeal is dismissed.

Conclusions 107. None of the triggers for Plan B have been activated and the proposed development conflicts with Policies GN2 and RS6. It would involve the loss of a significant area of BMV agricultural land and conflicts with Policy EN2. The Council can demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable housing sites. Relevant policies in the Local Plan are not out of date in terms of paragraph 49 of the NPPF or for any other reason. Under these circumstances the presumption in favour of sustainable development contained in paragraph 14 of the NPPF does not apply. Material considerations do not provide a justification for granting planning permission. For the above reasons and taking account of other matters raised I conclude that the appeal should be dismissed. Kevin Ward. INSPECTOR
