The Assistant Director Planning – Community Development Services sought determination of a planning application for full planning permission for the erection of 5no. residential dwellings, creation of access and landscaping at land at Station Road, Scorton.


Ian Threlfall spoke on behalf of Scorton Parish Council objecting to the application.


The applicant’s agent, Matthew Mortonson, spoke in support of the application.


During consideration of the above application, the Committee discussed the following issues:-

·       The location of the site, its visibility from the highway on the approach into the village and the location of the water pipe which sets the development back, providing a green corridor.

·       The former designation of the area as a landscape site within a previous Local Plan and the weight it can be given in determining the application. Members were advised the application should be considered based on the current Local Plan and no weight should be given to a previous plan.

·       The proposed layout of the site and its suitability.


The decision:-


That planning permission be GRANTED subject to the conditions set out in section 12 of the report.


Voting Record


A vote was taken and the motion was declared carried with 4 for and 3 against.
