She continued: “By reason of its design, scale, siting and nature of the use within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the proposed development would have a visually intrusive and harmful impact on the rural character, scenic beauty and tranquillity of the area.”
Councillor Merilyn Davies said: “We have to support farmers and diversification, we live in a rural area.”
Councillor Dean Temple, who represents Chadlington, said it is a “very difficult case,” adding: “With a heavy heart, I propose we reject this proposal.”
Councillor Elizabeth Poskitt told the meeting: “There are plenty of less obtrusive places where one could have a restaurant.”
