Decision details

This case has not yet been decided.

Decision: Refuse Planning Permission/Consent
Decision date: 01 Feb 2017
Conditions and reasons:


By virtue of their visibility and reflective nature the proposed solar panels would form a visually intrusive, incongruous and unsympathetic addition to the roof which would disrupt the unaltered main roof line, and would fail to preserve the special architectural, historic interest and setting of the listed building. The public benefits gained by the installation of the solar panels, in terms of sustainable energy, would not outweigh the less than substantial harm caused to the listed building.


Refused/No pre-app or discussion
To assist applicants in finding solutions to problems arising in relation to their development proposals the Local Planning Authority has produced planning policies, and provided written guidance, all of which are available on the Council's website. A pre-application advice service is also offered. In this case the proposal does not comply with guidance and policies. No pre-application discussions were entered into, although discussions were undertaken during the application process. The Council is ready to enter into discussions with the applicants through the advice service to assist in the preparation of any new planning application.
