Decision:

That the application be refused.

 

REASONS FOR DECISION:

 

Highway Safety

The proposed development would result in harm to the safety of users of Mill Road as a direct result of conflict between heavy goods vehicles and horse riders / pedestrians, which could not be satisfactorily mitigated through planning conditions. Approval of the application would therefore be contrary to policy WDC10 (ii and iii) of the Leicestershire & Leicester Waste Development Framework Core Strategy and Development Control Policies 2009 and paragraph 109 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019).

 

Environment / Amenity

The proposed development would cause unacceptable harm to the amenity of occupiers of nearby properties by reason of frequent and sudden noise and disturbance caused by heavy goods vehicles using Mill Lane. Approval of the application would therefore be contrary to policies WCS8 (iv), and WDC10 (iii) of the Leicestershire & Leicester Waste Development Framework Core Strategy and Development Control Policies 2009 paragraph 180 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019).
