REASON FOR REFUSAL



1

The proposal, by reason of its siting, proximity and materials, would result in a loss of residential amenity through noise and disturbance, and visual amenity given its free-standing position for the residents of Landmark house and the street scene in general. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies DBE1 and DBE2 of the Adopted Local Plan 1998 and 2006, and Policy DM9 of the Local Plan Submission Version 2017.

2

The proposal, by reason of its siting would result in the loss of operational parking for the service yard to the detriment of parking management of commercial vehicles, loading and unloading to service the commercial premises and would consequently create noise and disturbance issues through restricted manoeuvring of vehicles detrimental to residential amenity. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies DBE1, DBE2 and ST6 of the Adopted Local Plan 1998 and 2006, and Policy DM9 of the Local Plan Submission Version 2017.

WARD:

DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSAL:

The proposed demolition of the existing Coach House building (used as a C3 dwellinghouse as per decision reference EPF/3357/18) and single storey stable building, and construction of a 5 bedroom replacement dwelling.

 

DECISION:

REFUSED

REASON FOR REFUSAL

 

 

1

The proposal fails to demonstrate the public benefits of the demolition of this historic asset and its replacement with a contemporary dwellinghouse. Moreover, the proposed development would be situated on higher land and would as a result undermine the setting of the adjacent Grade II Listed Building known as Patsalls. The proposed development therefore fails to accord with policy  HC12 of the adopted Local Plan 1998, policy DM7 of the SVLP 2017 and the NPPF 2019.

 

 

2

The access point for the proposed replacement dwellinghouse is little used at present. There is a veteran tree directly adjacent to this existing access point which has been recently granted tree preservation order status due to its civic and public amenity value. The proposed development is likely to result in a greater intensification of use of this existing access and could result in the deterioration of this tree. As such, the proposal is contrary to policy LL10 of the adopted Local Plan 1998, policy DM5 of the SVLP 2017 and the NPPF 2019.
