CHEESE FACTORY DEVELOPMENT
The latest Application by Cathelco to replace the house on Plot 1 with a far larger mansion style design, after strong opposition from the Parish Council and a number of residents has been REFUSED by the National Park Planning Authority for the following reasons:
1 The detailed design of the proposed dwelling house would be out of keeping with its setting, detracting from the character and appearance of the
built environment and landscape in this location, contrary to policy LC4 of the Development Plan, and to paragraphs 60, 64, and 115 of the Framework.
2 The proposed position of the garage fails to provide a defined edge to the development to the western side of the site, resulting in the appearance of
encroachment into undeveloped countryside and landscape harm, contrary to policy LC4 and to paragraph 115 of the Framework.
A public exhibition was held in the Village Hall on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th February. Around 50 members of the public visited to see and read comprehensive information about the Draft Plan. Everyone was invited to complete a feedback form and any response can be taken into account in the final drafts.
Response was positive with some suggestions that the Committee will review before they prepare the Plan for feedback from the National Park Authority. Following this feedback we will complete the plan and make it available for final review.
It will then be subject to a comprehensive review by an Inspector appointed by the Peak Park.
If the Inspector passes the paln, either in its entirety or with recommendations, the final stage will be for all villagers to have a chance to see and digest a copy prior to a Village referendum of electors, to decide if the Plan is accepted by this community.
