George Lane, Read, Burnley – Ribble Valley Borough Council

Emery Planning have secured outline planning permission on behalf of the Trustees of Hammond Ground for an infill dwelling on George Lane, Read. The site is in the open countryside. However Ribble Valley’s Core Strategy allows for development beyond settlement boundaries of Tier 1 settlements such as Chatburn where it meets the definition of “expansion” or “consolidation” as set out in the glossary to the Core Strategy. The Council agreed that the site was a logical infill plot and that the site did not form part of the historic parkland setting of Read Hall.
