DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSAL:

Amendment to planning permission EPF/0348/18 (Retention of height of rear pool building with incorporation of roof light windows, excavation of pool building by 1.2m to create mezzanine floor above pool, alterations to and raising of roof of existing garage building, and formation of basement in existing garage building to be used as a gym with rooms above).

REASON FOR REFUSAL

 

1

The proposal would result in significant harm to the setting of the listed building by the increased bulk of the proposed garage/pool building, the harm caused to the appearance and special interest of the listed building and the wider street scene of Maypole Drive. This is supported by policies HC10 and HC12 of the Local Plan and Alterations (1998 and 2006), policy DM7 of the Submission Version Local Plan (2017), and the NPPF (2019).

 

 

2

Due to the close proximity of the proposal to no.7 Maypole Drive, the proposal by reason of its excessive height would cause significant harm to the outlook and light afforded the inhabitants of this dwellinghouse when viewed from its rear habitable room glazing and garden area. The proposal is contrary to policy DBE9 of the adopted Local Plan and Alterations (1998 and 2006), policy DM 10 of the Submission Version of the Local Plan 2017 and the NPPF 2019.
