A report was presented on an application for the erection of new buildings, hardstanding and car park area at Fogg's Farm, Hobbs Lane, Claughton on Brock.


The report included the views of Wyre Borough Council, Claughton on Brock Parish Council, the Environment Agency, Lancashire County Council Highways Development Control, Landscape Specialist (Jacobs), Cadent Gas and details of six letters of representation received in support of the application.


The Development Management Officer presented a PowerPoint presentation showing an aerial view of the site and the nearest residential properties. The Committee was also shown illustrations of the proposed development, the landscape proposals and visualisations and photographs of the development from various viewpoints.


The Committee was reminded that as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, members of the public who had formally requested to speak at the committee meeting and who met the criteria, had been invited to give their views in the form of a written statement to be read out in full by officers at the meeting. An officer therefore read out a written statement in behalf of the applicant (Copy set out at Annex A to the Update Sheet).


Following questions to the officers with regard to the roofing materials, it was Moved and Seconded that:


'Condition 6 to the proposed planning permission be amended to require the replacement of the proposed pitched roof coloured natural grey with a 'living' green roof.' 


On being put to the vote the Motion was Lost.


The substantive motion was then put to the vote and it was:


Resolved:  That planning permission be granted subject to conditions set out in the report to the committee.
