Beer Road field: planning application refused

Posted on

EDDC planners have now refused the application to build a house in this field, which offers important views to the sea for residents and walkers on the SW Coastal Path. The delegated report gives three reasons:

  1. The site is in the countryside, outside the Built Up Area Boundary.
  2. The development would conflict with the Coastal Protection policy.
  3. Without further surveys, it conflicts with policies to protect the habitat of protected bat species from Beer Caves.

Planners also state that the owners’ proposed 2-metre fence would not enable them to get round the Coastal Protection policy (which they have misunderstood).
