Notice of the denial of an application for permit sought under this Chapter shall be in writing and accompanied by a statement of the reasons therefor. No application shall be denied if the anticipated harm is not significant or if the likelihood of its occurrence is remote. The Public Works Commission may impose conditions upon the permit but said conditions may only relate to compliance with applicable laws or ordinances or to public safety, health or order, or to steps required to be taken to guard against creation of a nuisance or to insure adequate safety and security for the public. No applicant having been denied a permit as aforesaid shall submit the same or similar application within one year of said denial without including in said new application facts showing that the circumstances upon which the original denial was based have substantially changed.
