Full Application - Erection of a new garage at Dains Mill, Roach Road, Upper Hulme (NP/SM/1022/1316, DH)


The report was presented by the Planning Officer who outlined the reasons for refusal as set out in the report.


Members noted that the applicant had not taken up the opportunity of further discussion and negotiation with Officers, which had been provided by the committee’s previous deferral.


A motion to refuse the application was moved, seconded, voted on and carried.




That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:


The garage, by virtue of its scale, form and design would cause harm to the significance of the Kyle Building and the setting of the historic corn mill, which are considered to be non-designated heritage assets.  The harm would not be outweighed by any public benefits.  Consequently, the proposal is contrary to Core Strategy policies GSP1, GSP3 and L3, Development Management policies DMC3, DMC5 and DMH8, and to advice in the Authority’s adopted Supplementary Planning Documents ‘Design Guide’ and ‘Building Design Guide’
