A rural business has obtained planning permission for a new storage building in the Green Belt.

The proposed building will comprise a steel framed structure with two roller shutter doors and four personnel doors. The external walls will be clad in plastisol coated box profile steel sheeting and the roof clad in natural grey fibre cement sheeting. A concrete hardstanding is approved to the front of the building.

The local planning authority concluded the proposed storage building was not considered to result in any undue detrimental impact on the openness of the Green Belt and the scheme was acceptable in principle. The building will have a functional appearance, compatible with its use and the use of the wider site. Existing tree coverage at the site will limit views of the building from the highway. The tree coverage will also serve to minimise the impact of the building on the openness of the Green Belt, which would be largely unaffected.

It was therefore considered that the proposals complied with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the local policies.
