Decision:
REFUSE subject to reason(s)

Date decision dispatched:
17/04/2018
Decision level:
Committee Level Decision
Conditions or reasons:
  1. The proposal by reason of its siting, use of land, and quantum of built form would represent inappropriate development spreading into an undeveloped part of the Countryside beyond the Green Belt. This would have an urbanising effect, visually harming openness and the countryside's intrinsic character and landscape. The proposal would therefore fail to respect and enhance the area and be contrary to  Policies CP1 and DM9 of the Surrey Heath Core Strategy and Development Management Policies 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework.
  2. The Planning Authority, following an Appropriate Assessment and in the light of available information and the representations of Natural England, is unable to satisfy itself that the proposal (in combination with other projects) would not have an adverse effect on the integrity of the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA) and the relevant Site of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) . In this respect significant concerns remain with regard to the adverse effect on the integrity of the Special Protection Area in that there is likely to be an increase in dog walking, general recreational use and damage to the habitat and the protected species within the protected areas. Accordingly, since the planning authority is not satisfied that Regulation 62 of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 (Habitats Regulations) applies in this case then it must refuse the application in accordance with Regulation 61 (5) of the Habitats Regulations and Article 6 (3) of Directive 92/43/EE. For the same reasons the proposal conflicts with the guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework and Policy CP14 of the Surrey Heath Core Strategy and Development Management Policies 2012 and Policy NRM6 of the South East Plan 2009 and the Thames Basin Heaths SPA Avoidance Strategy Supplementary Planning Document.
  3. The proposed development would provide a more vulnerable form of development within the functional floodplain (Zone 3b) within which such development is not acceptable as it would introduce such development to high flood risk, without safe access and egress, and leading to increased flood risk elsewhere, failing to comply with Policy DM10 of the Surrey Heath Core Strategy and Development Management Policies 2012, the National Planning Policy Framework and advice within the Planning Practice Guidance.
Informative notes:
  1. The applicant is advised that if this application had been acceptable in all other respects, the scheme would be Liable to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Schedule which came into effect on 1st December 2014. Therefore, if this decision is appealed and subsequently granted planning permission at appeal, this scheme will be liable to pay the Council┬┐s CIL upon commencement of development.
