Development of convenience store, ATM and associated car parking at 231 Hollin Lane Middleton Manchester M24 5LU

    Minutes:

    The Director of Economy and Environment reported on submitted planning application 15/00208/FUL for the development of convenience store, ATM and associated car parking at 231 Hollin Lane, Middleton, Manchester.

     

    The Planning Officer informed the Committee that comments had been received from Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in relation to the application.  The Committee were informed that the comments of GMP related to the security of the ATM and the stocking of the ATM and additional planning conditions were therefore recommended to be attached to the application.

     

    The Committee considered verbal representations from Mr G. Tierney, a local resident who addressed the Committee objecting to the application.

     

    The Committee considered verbal representations from Mr T. Brown, an agent for the applicant who addressed the Committee in relation to the application.

     

    The Committee considered the views of Councillor Phil Burke who addressed the Committee in relation to the application.

     

    DECIDED – That planning permission be refused on the grounds that the proposal comprises poor design that would be out of character with the area. The proposal therefore fails to take the opportunities available for improving the character and quality of the area and the harm that would arise outweighs the benefits of the proposal.  As such, the proposal does not comprise sustainable development and would be contrary to Policy BE/2 of the Rochdale Unitary Development Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework.
