Reason It is considered that insufficient information has been submitted to enable the local planning authority to confirm that the potential impacts of the proposed development on the transport network would not be severe, in the terms set out in paragraph 32 of the National Planning Policy Framework. In the absence of adequate information to accurately forecast potential impact, it is not considered possible to design and deliver suitable highways/ transport mitigation nor, consequently, to confirm that the proposal would be acceptable in terms of its air quality and traffic noise effects. The submitted information contains no agreed base year model, forecast year models, or Local Model Validation Report. In these circumstances, therefore, the local planning authority can not confirm that there would not be serious conflict with the following policies in the Local Plan Core Strategy for Warrington: - CS1 (seventh and eleventh bullets); - QE6 (fifth, sixth and tenth bullet); - QE7 (third bullet); - MP1 (All bullets); - MP3; - MP4; - MP7 (both bullets); - MP10 (first, second and third bullets).
Reason The proposal would not deliver the range of measures required to support a development of this nature and scale, with regard to the provision of school places; healthcare facilities and sport and recreation provision required by the Council’s adopted Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document, in support of policies CS1 (second and seventh bullet points) and MP10 (first, second and third bullets) of the Local Plan Core Strategy for Warrington. In the absence of such provision it is considered that the proposed development would not be sustainable in the sense intended by paragraph 7 (second bullet) of the National Planning Policy Framework.
