Land at Papist Way – Leavesley Consultation

Policy CNP H2  The village Built-up Area Boundary is defined on the Proposals Map. Permission will be supported for new homes on infill sites which lie within the village Built-up Area Boundary provided that:

  • the proposal does not have an unacceptable impact on an important open space of value to the community nor a space of environmental or ecological value, nor an important public view as set out in document – Cholsey Views Assessment  ​
  • an important open space of public, environmental or ecological value is not unacceptably harmed, nor an important public view as set out in document – Cholsey Views Assessment unacceptably harmed, and  ​
  • the proposal would not produce an unacceptable impact on noise, privacy and access, for example by creating a narrow side access in the neighbourhood area to the rear, and would not extend the built limits of the settlement  ​
  • maintains the general character and appearance of the area  ​

Proposals for development outside the built-up area will only be supported if they are appropriate to a countryside location and are otherwise consistent with development plan policies.

The Leavesley development proposals lie outside the built-up area and are not supported by Cholsey Parish Council.  Any consultation referred to by Leavesley is historic, no current consultation is taking place.
