RESOLVED

 

Refused – reasons outlined below

 

 

Reasons for refusal

 

 

1

The proposed development is for the erection of an office block on a site that is allocated for housing. The scheme does not propose any residential units. As such the proposed development has the potential to harm the borough’s ability to deliver its housing need. The proposed development is not compliant with Policy HG1- Housing, as set out in the adopted Tamworth Local Plan 2006-2031

 

2

 

The submitted Sequential Test required by policy EC1 – Hierarchy of Centres for Town Centre Uses, fails to demonstrate that there is no sequentially preferable site available for the proposal. Additionally, the proposal would prejudice the delivery of other strategic objectives. The proposed development is not compliant with Policy EC1 as set out in the adopted Tamworth Local Plan 2006-2031.

 

3

The application has not provided sufficient details within the Flood Risk Assessment or proposed plans for the Environment Agency and Local Lead Flood Authority to adequately assess the potential risks associated with the site being within Flood Zones 2 and 3, or the potential for the proposed development of increasing the risk of Surface and fluvial flooding. It is therefore contrary to policy SU4 of the adopted Tamworth Local Plan 2006-2031.

 

 

It was noted during the meeting that there had been an error within the report para 6.4.4, should read as below,

 

The application is compliant with the objectives and policies contained within the NPPF, para 109, compliant with policy SU2 of Tamworth Borough Council’s Local Plan 2006-2031, and therefore compliant with the interests of highway safety”.
