(2)  That the Planning Board declare that it was not favourably disposed towards application RB2021/0401 and that it be refused on the grounds that the proposed development, by reason of its combined scale, massing, siting and appearance would result in an excessive form of development that would appear dominant, disproportionate and visually intrusive within the immediate street scene and general character and appearance of the area.  As such, the proposal would be contrary to Policies CS28 ‘Sustainable Design’ and SP55 ‘Design Principles’ of the adopted Local Plan, together with Policy GP1 ‘High Quality Design’ contained within the Wickersley Neighbourhood Plan.


(3)   That, application RB2022/0762 be granted for the reasons adopted by Members at the meeting and subject to the relevant conditions listed in the submitted report.
