New Raunds Distribution Centre Refused for Planning Permission

The planning application for a Proposed Distribution Centre on the West End Land of Brick Kiln Road has been refused.

Details of the refusal are below:

“Under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 the Local Planning Authority hereby REFUSE PLANNING PERMISSION for the above development in accordance with the application and plans submitted, for the following reasons:

1. The proposal by virtue of its scale and location would result in unacceptable landscape and visual impacts and as a result of being visually overbearing would be detrimental to residential amenity. As such the proposal is contrary to North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy Policies 24 (e) and 8 (e) and Raunds Neighbourhood Plan Policy 14. The benefits of the proposal do not outweigh the identified harm.

2. The proposal does not include a proportion of floorspace in the form of smaller employment units, contrary to North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy Policy 24 (a). As a result it fails to contribute to the delivery of a mix of jobs and a diverse economy in conflict with North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy Policy 23 and Raunds Neighbourhood Plan Policy 13.

Your attention is drawn to the following notes:

1. In reaching this decision this Council has implemented the requirement in the NPPF to deliver sustainable development in a proactive and positive way in accordance with paragraph 38. The applicant was advised of concerns with the application and was given the opportunity to address them. This involved the relocation of the access road from Holdenby Drive to the A45 roundabout. A full report is available at www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk
