Serving of the Prohibition Order for the Review of the Mineral Planning Permission (ROMP) at Thrupp Farm and Thrupp Lane, Radley pdf icon PDF 376 KB

Report by the Director for Planning & Place (PN7).

 

This is a report to bring to committee the issue of the serving of the Prohibition Order for the Review of the Mineral Planning Permission (ROMP) at Thrupp Farm and Thrupp Farm, Radley which was resolved to progress at the meeting of the Planning and Regulation Committee on 9th September 2019. The report set outs the issue to be considered which is whether the recent submission of a related planning application for a processing plant, conveyor and Bailey bridge for the removal of the mineral from part of the ROMP site changes the committee’s previous decision as to whether mineral working from the ROMP has permanently ceased or not and therefore the duty to serve a Prohibition Order or not.

 

It is RECOMMENDED that the Planning & Regulation Committee’s previous conclusion from its meeting on 9 September 2019 (Minute 39/19) that mineral working on the Radley ROMP site has permanently ceased and that there is a duty to serve a Prohibition Order be reviewed subject to the planning application submitted for processing plant, a conveyor and a Bailey Bridge for the removal of mineral extracted from part of the ROMP permission areas DD1 and DD2 being validated and pending the council’s determination of the planning application.
