Is subject to call in?: No
At the Planning Committee meeting on 12 February 2020, Members advised that they were minded to refuse the above application and invited an implications report for further consideration. The Committee therefore had before it a * report of the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration setting out the implications of refusal.
The Principal Planning Officer outlined the contents of the report by way of presentation, highlighting the site location plan, the existing and proposed elevations, the garage elevations and the floor plans with photographs from various aspects of the site.
Consideration was given to the proposed reasons for refusal within the report.
It was therefore:
RESOLVED that that application be refused for the following reasons:
1. The proposed garage/store/annexe by reason of its siting, layout, scale and mass, fails to respect or relate to the character, scale and setting of the existing dwelling and its surroundings. As such it would have a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the locality due to its failure to demonstrate a clear understanding of the characteristics of the site, its wider context and the surrounding area. The proposal is therefore contrary to policies DM2 and DM13 of the Local Plan Part 3 (Development Management Policies) and the aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework.
2. The proposed garage/store/annexe by virtue of its height, bulk and close proximity to the boundary of the site would result in an overbearing and unneighbourly form of development that will have an unacceptably adverse effect on the residential amenity of the occupiers of 2 Dukes Orchard. As such, the proposal is contrary to policies DM2 and DM13 of the Local Plan Part 3 (Development Management Policies) and the aims and objectives of the National Planning Policy Framework.
