20/00262/FUL – Erection of 6 no. detached dwellings and associated works

Land North of Deanslade Farm, Claypit Lane, Lichfield

FOR:  Mr G Jones


RESOLVED:  That this planning application be REFUSED for the following reasons:-


Reason 1.   The proposed development which comprises of 6 No. 5 bedroom houses does not include an appropriate mix of house types and so fails to comply with the requirements of Lichfield District Local Plan Strategy Policy H1 (A Balanced Housing Market), which seeks to address an imbalance of dwelling types within the District by providing a mix of property types and sizes to contribute towards the development of mixed and sustainable communities.  The scheme would further imbalance the housing mix achieved within the Dean Slade South of Lichfield Strategic Development Allocation.  Therefore the proposals are contrary to Lichfield District Local Plan Strategy (February 2015) Policy H1 (A Balanced Housing Market) and the National Planning Policy Framework.


Reason 2. The proposed development would further erode the rural character of the area and the setting of Sandfields Lodge and Sandfields House, which are Grade II listed buildings, to the detriment of their significance.  The proposals are therefore contrary to Lichfield District Local Plan Policies CP1 (Spatial Strategy), CP3 (Delivering Sustainable Development), CP14 (Our Built and Historic Environment), BE1 (High Quality Development), Policy BE2 (Heritage Assets), the Historic Environment SPD, the Sustainable Design SPD, and the National Planning Policy Framework.


21/00195/FULM – Proposed development to provide holiday accommodation, additional caravan pitches, additional car parking, amenity building and fishing lake and associated works
Kings Orchard Marina, Broad Lane, Huddlesford, Lichfield

FOR:  ABC Leisure Group Ltd


RESOLVED:  That this planning application be approved subject to the conditions contained in the report of the Chief Executive.
