Prior approval granted.
Occupation of Little Wycke Farm in breach of Condition 3 of MAL/191/77 and condition 4 of 00/00353/FUL (Agricultural occupancy) for a continuous period of time in excess of ten years.
Reason for refusal:
The Local Planning Authority is not satisfied that there is sufficient evidence to substantiate the claim that on the balance of probability, the occupiers of Little Wyke Farm have been living in the property in breach of condition 3 of MAL/191/77 and condition 4 of 00/00353/FUL, and have not been wholly or mainly employed, or last employed, in agriculture, for in excess of ten years and therefore the occupancy is not lawful within the meaning of section 191 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended).
Two storey rear extension.
Reasons for refusal:
- The proposed development due to its height, depth and design, would be an unsympathetic addition to the existing dwelling to the detriment of the character and appearance of the host dwelling and the surrounding area, contrary to policies D1 and H4 of the Maldon District Local Development Plan and the guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework
- The proposed development due to its height, design, depth and proximity to the site boundary, would have an adverse impact on the amenity of the occupiers of the neighbouring dwellings to the north as a result of a loss of privacy. Therefore, the proposed development would be an unneighbourly form of development, contrary to policies D1 and H4 of the Maldon District Local Development Plan and the guidance contained within the National Planning Policy Framework
Permission in principle for single dwelling.
Reason for refusal:
The development would have likely significant effects on the European designated sites as a result of recreational disturbance. Therefore, the development is considered to be 'habitats development' and as such the proposal would not comply with Article 5B (1) of the Town and Country Planning (Permission in Principle) Order 2017 (as amended) and would fall foul of Policies S1 and N2 of the Maldon District Local Development Plan (2017) and the policies and guidance contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (2021).
