Proposal:       A material change of use of Land as a wedding and events venue and ancillary operational development to the material change of use.

 

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation from the Head of Planning to refuse permission.

 

The Committee received supplementary information, circulated prior to the meeting which included written deputations received from Doctor Austin, Mr Southgate and Mr Knapett, on behalf of the applicant.

 

The Committee was addressed by the following deputees who in addition to their written deputations, had requested to address the Committee in person:

 

a)               Doctor Austin, who on behalf of Chichester Harbour Conservancy, outlined the responsibilities with regard to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and recommended that the application should be refused for the following reasons:

 

              (1)         the application has a detrimental impact on the landscape in an Area of Natural Beauty (“ANOB”);

 

              (2)         the application would have a detrimental impact on nature conservation; and

 

              (3)         the inappropriateness of this application in terms that it represented a major development in a highly protected landscape

 

              Doctor Austin advised that unless it was robustly refuse on these grounds, a refusal could be lost in an appeal.

             

b)               Mr Knappett, who on behalf of Mr & Mrs Phillips, who owned Tournerbury Farm, highlighted the following issues raised in his written submission:

 

              (1)         little had changed since the 2017 application when there was a wish to improve access to activities within the Tournerbury Estate, whilst protecting the farming activities and husbandry at Tournerbury Farm

 

              (2)         the 2017 planning permission for the alternative vehicular access track had been implemented by his clients and was under construction.  A current planning application had been submitted to the Council seeking to divert the approved access track in the south-eastern corner and included other minor alterations to the planning permission.  It was hoped that the applicant (and his customers) would use this alternative route to access the Estate once completed;  

 

              (3)         the specific issues of concern included: noise and disturbance late at night by visitors and traffic going to/from the Estate; the lack of security, occasional antisocial behaviour, taxis waiting in the Farmyard, vehicle headlights late at night towards the Farmhouse; the narrowness of the track and lack of opportunities for vehicles to pass; the close proximity of water bodies and lack of forward visibility; and the conflict of vehicles passing through the Farmyard with livestock, farm vehicles and workers. The application had a detrimental impact on the landscape in an Area of Natural Beauty;

 

              (Mr Knappett failed to complete his deputation in the time allowed)

 

c)           Mrs Snell, the applicant, who with reference to the written deputation submitted by Mr Morris on her behalf, supported the application for the following reasons:

 

              (1)         this was long standing business which aimed to generate sustainable income to preserve and conserve the environment and habitat;

 

              (2)         every Natural England condition site assessment since the business started has been positive;

 

              (3)         the concerns of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 32.
