Minutes:

The Area Team Leader for Helensburgh and Lomond spoke to the terms of the report.  Planning permission in principle is sought for the erection of three dwellings at the most northern part of Portincaple, east of Lochhaven.  The site lies within the settlement boundary of the minor settlement of Portincaple/Whistlefield as defined by the adopted Local Development Plan.  Within this area there is a presumption in favour of small scale residential development subject to other local plan policies being satisfied.  The site also lies within an area designated as an Area of Panoramic Quality (APQ) and careful consideration must be given to the impact of the proposed development in this important landscape.  A total of 12 representations have been received objecting to the proposed development therefore consideration has to be given to holding a discretionary hearing.  In this instance the application is for planning permission in principle in which specific detail is not available in respect of design etc.  It is considered that the key issues raised by objectors have been covered in the report of handling or can be dealt with by condition.  As such it is not considered that a discretionary hearing would add any value to this process.  No objections have been received from statutory consultees.  The proposal accords with Policies LDP DM 1, LDP 3, LDP 9 and Supplementary Guidance SG LDP HOU 1, SG LDP – Sustainable Siting and Design Principles, SG LDP SERV 1, SG LDP SERV 2, SG LDP SERVE 3, SG LDP TRAN 4, SG LDP TRAN 6, SG LDP ENV 1, SG LDP ENV 6 and SG LDP ENV 13 of the adopted Argyll and Bute Local Development Plan and is recommended for approval subject to conditions and reasons detailed in the report of handling.
