Appeal on rejection of home plan in Oakworth
10:50am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
An appeal has been lodged against Bradford Council’s rejection of plans for a new house at Oakworth.
Council planning officers refused permission for the development, at Abrol Farm, Mill Lane, citing several factors. They claimed the scheme would affect privacy, lead to the loss of mature trees and create traffic problems in a driveway already serving five properties.
Officers added that no flood risk assessment had been provided with the application and, because the site was identified as a spoil heap on historical maps, ground survey information would be needed.
Objectors to the proposals included Keighley Town Council, which recommended refusal.
The appeal is being dealt with through written representations.
