Consider request for review of refusal of application for erection of dwellinghouse and detached garage on land SE of Tarf House, West Linton. 18/01341/PPP. 18/00037/RREF.

Copies of the following papers attached:-



There had been circulated copies of the request from Mr and Mrs Eriend Milne, per Ferguson Planning, Shiel House, 54 Island Street, Galashiels, for review of refusal of the planning application in respect of erection of dwellinghouse and detached garage on land South East of Tarf House, West Linton.  The supporting papers included the Notice of Review; Decision Notice, Officer’s Report; consultations; and a list of relevant policies.  Having concluded that there was not a building group in the vicinity of the site of the proposed dwellinghouse Members went on to debate whether there was economic justification for a house on that particular site in terms of the ancillary business referred to in the application.  Members were aware of the lack of land allocated for businesses in the West Linton Area but noted that in this case insufficient information to support a business case had been submitted.



AGREED that:-


(a)        the request for a review had been competently made in terms of Section       43A of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997;


(b)       the review could be considered without the need for any further         procedure on the basis of the site visit and the papers submitted;


(c)        the proposal would be contrary to the Development Plan and that there        were no other material considerations that would justify departure from           the Development Plan; and


(d)       the officer’s decision to refuse the application be upheld and the        application refused for the reasons detailed in Appendix II to this      Minute.
