1

The proposed alterations to the Grade II* Listed Building would result in significant and substantial harm to the form and character, historic layout and fabric, and legibility of the listed building, introducing modern built elements not characteristic to a building of the age and style, substantially altering the internal and external built form, and removing and subdividing parts of the building which are of significant importance to the fabric, appearance and legibility of its form. Such works would thereby be contrary to policies HC10, HC12, DBE2 and DBE9 of the adopted Local Plan and Alterations, policies DM7, DM8, DM9 and DM10 of the Local Plan Submission Version (2017), and the NPPF, particularly paragraphs 184, 193 and 196.

 

 

2

The alterations to the extension in terms of the treatment of the glazed link to the Listed Building and the north east elevation in particular, together with other alterations, would result in a lessening of the visual and spatial separation from the listed building, and in an increase in the appearance of mass and bulk resulting in an inappropriate dominance of the listed building, detrimental to the character of the site,  to general amenity and to the wider Conservation Area, contrary to policies HC6, HC7, HC10, HC12, DBE1, DBE2 and DBE9 of the adopted Local Plan and Alterations, policies DM7, DM9 and DM10 of the Local Plan Submission Version (2017), and the NPPF.

 

 

 

Way forward:

 

The applicant to work with officers to secure the integrity, fabric and character of this Grade 11* Listed Building and enable proper implementation of the extant planning permission and listed building consent in the interests of the future sustainability of this national heritage asset.

The proposal, by reason of its height, design and proximity to flats 11 and 12 of Key West Court, Block B, results in an overbearing relationship and is detrimental to the visual amenities of occupiers of those flats. The development is therefore contrary to policies DBE1 and DBE2 of the Adopted Local Plan, policy DM9 of the Local Plan Submission Version 2017 and the NPPF 2019.

 

 

Way forward:
