  6. No objections, but plan still voted down

    Wealden planners have refused an application to redevelop a disused rural builder’s yard near Buxted.

    On 4 April Wealden District Council’s planning committee refused proposals to build a single family dwelling on land next to Tanyard’s Farmhouse in Framfield Road, after demolishing a number of disused agricultural buildings on the site.

    While no objections were raised over the building’s design or its impact on the surrounding area, the committee opted to refuse the application as it would go against policies.

    The site’s owner says the building is dilapidated and contains asbestos, but the committee heard from officers that approving the scheme would "go directly against" a number of policies contained in its recently-submitted local plan – potentially opening it up to challenge, with the application rejected by four votes to three.
