It was proposed by Councillor Wrigley and seconded by Councillor MacGregor and

 

RESOLVED

 

That planning permission be refused for the following reasons:

 

The structure proposed to serve as temporary residential accommodation is considered inappropriate for this proposal as there is insufficient information submitted with the application to identify how it would meet the objectives of policies S7 and EN3 of the Teignbridge Local Plan in relation to how it would be insulated or would otherwise seek to minimise its carbon emissions as well as in relation to proposals for its re-use following the expiration of the proposed temporary period.

 

The proposal is considered to be contrary to Policy WE9 of the Teignbridge Local Plan as the identified commercial equine use of the site has not yet commenced.
