Consider request for review of refusal of application for erection of dwellinghouse and agricultural building on land North East of Hoprigshiel Farmhouse, Cockburnspath. 19/00590/FUL. 19/00023/RREF.

Copies of the following papers attached:-


There had been circulated copies of the request from Mr and Mrs S. Phaup, per Richard Amos Ltd, to review refusal of the planning application for the erection of a dwellinghouse and agricultural building on land north east of Hoprigshiels Farmhouse, Cockburnspath. The supporting papers included the Notice of Review and associated documents; Decision Notice; Officer’s Report; papers referred to in the Officer’s Report; Consultations; and a list of policies. Members agreed that although the proposed design of the house was acceptable concern was expressed regarding the proposed location, which was neither part of the farm or the building group.  Members further agreed that an unaccompanied site visit would help their consideration of the application and would also allow them to look at the other possible sites which had been discounted by the applicants.



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; and


(b)       consideration of the review be deferred to allow Members to visit the site and that the site visit be unaccompanied.




Councillor Ramage declared an interest in the following item of business in terms of Section 5 of the Councillors Code of Conduct and left the Chamber during the discussion.
