See report by Matthew Rees, Planning Officer (agenda item 5)

 

Councillor Foote spoke as the Member calling in the application to the Bedfont, Feltham, Hanworth Area Forum and he explained his reasons for doing so.

 

Matthew Rees, Planning Officer, presented the report. He advised that refusal was being recommended because of the impact of the accommodation on green belt. Green belt could be used for leisure and recreation activities but, in this case, officers did not feel that there were very special circumstances. They were also concerned that the proposal could set a precedent for other residential buildings on the green belt in the future.

 

Members noted that the application had been made to allow someone to be permanently on site to look after the horses. They felt that the stables were beneficial and that horse riding was a recreational use.

 

Councillor Collins moved approval with a condition to ensure that the building was only occupied by the owner of the stables or those working at the stables, that there was no further development of the site and the approved building was not extended. Councillor O’Reilly seconded approval and Members voted as follows:

 

For -               Councillors Atwal Hear, Collins, Khan, Lambert, N.Malik, O’Reilly, Rajawat and Whatley 

Against -       None

Abstain -       Councillors Chopra, Grewal, Louki and K.Malik

 

Resolved:

 

a)    That planning permission for planning application 00784/A/P22 for the erection of enclosed (uncovered) ground for the benefit of horse riding and the construction of ancillary living/office accommodation for the applicant, who works at the stables on a full time basis be approved because the building was necessary and the use was for recreational activity, which were very special circumstances and permitted building on green belt land.

b)    That permission would include a condition to ensure that the building was only occupied by the owner of the stables or those working at the stables, that there was no further development of the site and the approved building was not extended.
