INFORMATIVE
 

Planning permission was refused for the development because it was not in accordance with Section 38(6)of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 or the policies of the Middlesbrough Development Plan set out below or all material considerations, including Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) and the particular circumstances summarised below:-


DC1 - General Development
CS4 - Sustainable Development

Having done so, Members determined that the proposed development was unsatisfactory as they considered it was too large in relation to the plot size and would be a prominent and dominating feature in the locality, which would be to the detriment of the visual amenity of the area.
