How the proposed development would impact on the openness, visual amenity and the character of Cothill Pitt?
December 15, 2014
The National Planning Policy Framework states that “The Government attaches great importance to Green Belts. The fundamental aim of Green Belt policy is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open; the essential characteristics of Green Belts are their openness and their permanence”.
The proposed development suggests erecting 14 residential houses that would completely change the character of the place. Current open green space will be turned into semi-urban development with the on-site traffic, houses with fences and related infrastructure. In our opinion, it will clearly destroy the openness of the Green Belt and change its visual amenity. Watch the video and share your view.
