Reasons for Decision


In the opinion of the Borough Council the proposed development is visually acceptable and would improve public access. The proposed development therefore accords with Policies 32 and 35 in the Local Planning Document, Saved Policies ENV1, ENV15 and T12 of the Gedling Borough Replacement Plan, Policy 10 of the Aligned Core Strategy and the aims set out within the National Planning Policy Framework. It is therefore recommended that planning permission is granted.





Notes to Applicant

Negotiations have taken place during the consideration of the application to address adverse impacts identified by officers and/or address concerns raised in letters of representation submitted in connection with the proposal. Amendments have been made to the proposal, addressing the identified adverse impacts, thereby resulting in a more acceptable scheme and a favourable recommendation.
