Reasons for Decision

 

The development has been considered in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework, the adopted Local Plan and Emerging Aligned Core Strategy, where appropriate. In the opinion of the Borough Council the proposed development largely accords with the relevant policies of these frameworks and plans.  Where the development conflicts with the Local Plan, it is the opinion of the Borough Council that other material considerations indicate that permission should be granted.  The benefits of granting the proposal outweigh any adverse impact of departing from the Local Plan.  Environmental information has been taken into consideration by the Borough Council in reaching this decision.
