At this weeks's Planning Committee we considered an application to build new housing (31 units in total) in the green belt at Storeton Village as an enabling development to restore the grade II listed Storeton Hall.
I argued strongly that the application was excessive and of a scale not in keeping with the restoration required. It would have created an unsustainable development of 31 new houses with no local facilities. Effectively, Storeton village would have doubled in size.
I'm pleased the committee agreed with me and rejected the application.
