The Parish Council OBJECTS to this application on the following grounds:

  1. The development site is within the Green Belt and would therefore constitute inappropriate development. The proposed development cannot be regarded as infill development within a Village. The site is outside the principal settlement area of  the hamlet known as Bentham. Neither Little Witcombe or Bentham have been classified as Service Villages.
  2. The development would have an adverse impact on the surrounding Green Belt landscape. The removal of the existing building and the erection of a new dwelling would result in a significant visual change.
  3. The development site is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which provides the highest level of protection against development.
  4. The proposed development is not sustainable. There is no public transport, schools, shops and public services within close proximity  to the proposed development. Private transport would therefore be needed to obtain or make use of such services.
