II MINUTE OF MEETING OF LOCAL REVIEW BODY OF 25TH OCTOBER, 2016
The minute of the above meeting was submitted and noted.
III LOCAL PLANNING REVIEW - LRB8/16 - 2 MUIRTON ROAD, DUNDEE
There was submitted Agenda Note AN94-2016, giving details of a request for a review of the refusal of planning permission for the change of use from a shop to a flat.
The Planning Adviser gave a brief outline of the application and the reasons for the refusal.
Papers had been circulated and the Local Review Body had requested an accompanied site visit which had taken place on 7th November, 2016 at 1.30 pm.
The Local Review Body noted all of the above, and agreed in terms of the Local Review Procedure Regulations to determine the review without further procedure on the basis of the information before it.
Thereafter, having considered all the information, the Local Review Body, having taken into account the provisions of the Development Plan, all material considerations, the accompanied site visit and all matters raised at the review, upheld the Appointed Officer's decision to refuse planning permission 16‑00597-FULL for the following reason:-
The proposed change of use would be of an unacceptable design standard and visual appearance. The proposal is contrary to Policies 7, 9, 11, 44 and 50 of the adopted Dundee Local Development Plan and the Air Quality and Land Use Planning Supplementary Guidance. There are no material considerations of sufficient weight that would justify the approval of planning permission.
Christina ROBERTS, Convener.
