Full Application - Proposed Agricultural Building Extensions to Store Fodder and Livestock at Ollerbrook Farm, Edale (NP/HPK/0621/0625, AM)



Cllr D Chapman and Mr R Helliwell left the meeting due to a personal and prejudicial interest. Mr K Smith took over the role of Chair.


Members had visited the site on the previous day.


The Planning Officer introduced the application which alongside the extensions also included amendments to the recently built agricultural building.  The Officer requested an additional condition to specify the location of the new wall to replace the post and wire fence line for significant landscape conservation and screening benefits, and to add a reasonable time period to the condition.


Members supported the application and were pleased to see the use of PV tiles included in the application.


A motion to approve the application in line with the Officers recommendation and subject to the conditions set out in the report plus an additional condition regarding the location and  building of a wall was moved, seconded, put to the vote and carried.




That the application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:


1.            Statutory three year time limit.
