Reasons for the decision:

There is sufficient merit and justification for an Article 4 Direction in this particular instance. The development to which the direction relates (as described in the report) would be prejudicial to the proper planning of the area – the subdivision of this AONB/AGLV land would interfere with the visual amenity, and open quality and special nature of the land.

Alternative options considered:

A Declines to make an Article 4 direction on the land as the land is well protected by its current Green Belt and AGLV/AONB designation; or

 

B Agrees to make a non-immediate Article 4 direction across the land to remove permission, granted by Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (as amended), relating to Schedule 2, Part 2, Minor Operations, Class A, relating to fences, gates, walls and any other means of enclosure and Schedule 2, Part 4, Temporary Buildings and Uses, Class B, relating to temporary uses of the land and meet the statutory notification and consultation requirements.
