Is Key decision?: No
A report was presented on the infilling of a lake, and change of use of land to allow the siting of 40 static caravan pitches for holiday use and associated infrastructure at Highfield Farm Fisheries, Gants Lane, Hambleton.
The report included the views of Wyre Borough Council, Lancashire County Council Ecology Service, the Environment Agency, Lancashire County Council Highways Development Control and details of 3 letters of representation received objecting to the development.
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 a site layout plan and photographs of the existing fishing lakes.
Officers responded to questions raised by the Members with regard to impact of the additional vehicle movements on the A585 during the construction phase and drew attention to Condition 12 of the proposed planning permission which requires that the accommodation units shall be used for the purposes of holiday accommodation only and not as a permanent residence.
Following further debate reading the additional vehicle movements, it was Moved and Seconded that:
"The application be approved, subject to following amendment to condition 8b to read:
b) The hours of operation that will apply to HGVs importing fill materials to the site which shall not be outside the hours of 09.00 and 16.00 Mondays to Fridays."
On being put to the vote the amendment was Carried. It was therefore:
Resolved: That subject to the amendment to Condition 8b as set out above, planning permission be granted subject to conditions set out in the report to the committee.
