2.      that, in respect of application P/19/2162/2 (Peashills Farm, Ratcliffe Road, Sileby), planning permission be granted subject to the conditions, reasons and advice notes set out in the report and the amendments to conditions set out in the extras report of the Head of Planning and Regeneration and that:

 

(a)     Officers be given delegated authority to devise the final wording of the conditions.

 

3.      that, in respect of application P/20/0587/2 (23 Buddon Lane, Quorn) planning permission be refused as the Committee felt the application was an overdevelopment of the site and that the character, scale and massing of the building were out of character with the local area. Additionally, it was considered that the mix comprising two large five-bedroom houses was contrary to both the Neighbourhood Plan and the Core Strategy. Therefore, the application was considered contrary to:

 

(a)     Core Strategy Policies CS2 and CS3

(c)     Neighbourhood Plan Polices S2 and H3

(d)     The Design Supplementary Planning Document

(e)     National Design Guidance and the National Planning Policy Framework
