Additional documents:

Minutes:

 

Proposal Description: Construction of detached 3 bedroom chalet dwelling with office space and laboratory for owner/operator of Dadkhah stud.

The application was introduced. Members were referred to the update sheet which stated that since the publication of the report, officers had reviewed the reason for refusal and recommended that the two issues listed are separated into two separate reasons for refusal (1 and 2 below).  In addition, a further reason for refusal was also proposed relating to nitrate neutrality as in the absence of any mitigation, the proposal is contrary to Regulations 63 and 64 of “The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017” and Policy SD10 of the South Downs National Park (SDNP) Local Plan as it is considered that the proposal would have likely significant effect on a European protected site through an increase in nitrate input.

The update sheet also noted that there was an error on Page 123 under the heading “Reason for Recommendation and Conditions” it should read:

Reason for Recommendation

It is recommended that the application be refused for the following reasons.

New reasons for refusal:

1.       The application fails to provide evidence and justification to warrant a permanent dwelling on this private equestrian site. The application is contrary to paragraph 79 of the NPPF.

2.       The proposed dwelling does not enhance or maintain the natural rural setting set within the South Downs National Park. The application is contrary to policies SD4 and SD5 of the South Downs National Park.

3.       The proposal for a permanent residential dwelling for an equestrian worker within the Solent Catchment Area, will result in additional nitrates being deposited into the SPA's. Therefore,  in the absence of any mitigation, the proposal is contrary to Regulations 63 and 64 of The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 and Policy SD10 of the SDNP Local Plan as it is considered that the proposal will have likely significant effect on a European protected site through an increase in nitrate input.

During public participation, Ellie Dadkhahspoke in support of the application and answered members' questions.

The Committee proceeded to ask questions and debate the application.

RESOLVED

The committee agreed to refuse permission for the reasons and subject to the conditions and informatives set out in the report and the update sheet.
