Full Application - Proposed removal of existing building at western end of site, and replacement with a workshop and ancillary office, including the associated change of use at land south of Church Lane, Chelmorton (NP/DDD/0322/0396, MN)


Cllr Brady, Chair of the Committee left the room for the discussion of this item as he had declared a prejudicial interest and the Vice Chair, Mr Smith took the Chair.


Some Members of the Committee had visited the site the previous day.


The Planning Officer presented the report which outlined the reasons for approval. He advised that in the planning history section of the report, one application had been omitted – a refusal of an open market dwelling and workshop in 2021.  He also confirmed that the 2021 refusal was being appealed and that if the appeal was upheld and this application was approved, the applicants would be able to choose which scheme they carried out.


Members noted that the proposed conditions addressed concerns which had been raised by the Parish Council.


A motion to approve the application in accordance with the Officer recommendation was moved and seconded, put to the vote and carried.
