UTT/19/0437/OP – Land South of Rush Lane, Elsenham

Outline application for the erection of up to 40 dwellings with all matters reserved except for access

Status: Refused

The proposed development by reason of the site’s location lying outside development limits within the countryside and also the Countryside Protection Zone (CPZ) would be harmful to the particular character of the countryside in which the site is set and harmful to the openness of the Countryside Protection Zone. As such, the development would be contrary to ULP Policies S7 and S8 of the Uttlesford Local Plan (adopted 2005) whereby the adverse environmental effects arising from this rural harm and loss of openness would significantly and demonstrably outweigh any identified benefits of the submitted scheme, including the site’s sustainable location relative to local services and public transport provision and the inclusion of affordable housing when assessed against the policies contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (February 2019) taken as a whole.
