Updates

Minutes:

The following update was provided:-

 

Outcome of the Public Inquiry for the development on land at Blue Man’s Way, Catcliffe (RB2014/1342) – Appeal Upheld, where the Inspector concluded:-

 

“Having regard to all of the above considerations I find that the appeal proposal would cause no harm to the Council’s approved spatial strategy and settlement hierarchy. I find that the proposal would secure a significant enhancement in the value of the ‘retained land’ as urban green space and would make a positive overall contribution to the green infrastructure corridor along the A630 route. I also find that the proposal would not have an unacceptable effect on the protected trees within the site. For these reasons I conclude that the proposal complies with Core Strategy Policies CS 1 and CS 19 and with saved UDP Policy ENV5.1.

 

Although I have considered the arguments put forward by the appellant I do not consider that any of these policies is so inconsistent with the policies in the Framework such that they should be given less than full weight having regard to the advice at paragraph 19. As I have found no conflict with any other relevant policies I conclude that the proposal complies with the development plan as a whole”.
