Proposed Decision

That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:


1.         The building, associated hardstanding and new access track, by virtue of their siting and appearance, would have a significant and adverse visual impact on the valued characteristics and appearance of the landscape and the wider scenic beauty of the National Park. The proposal is therefore contrary to the landscape conservation objectives set out in the NPPF and the Authority’s Development Plan Policies: Core Strategy GSP1, GSP2, GSP3, DS1 & L1 and Development Management Policies DMC3 & DME1.
