REASONS

1

The proposed development would result in an overdevelopment of the site, would appear overly prominent due to their height and overall scale and due to its detailed design and prominence would fail to relate positively to the character and appearance of the surrounding area. The proposal therefore fails to be of high-quality design and is therefore contrary to Chapter 12 of the NPPF, policies CP7, DBE1 and DBE3 of the Adopted Local Plan, Alterations and policies SP 3 and DM9 of the emerging Local Plan.

 

2

The proposal due to its height, bulk, depth and position will have significant overbearing impact on the neighbouring residential properties at nos. 78 and 80 The Plain. It is therefore contrary to chapter 12 of the NPPF, policies DBE 2 and DBE9 of the adopted Local Plan and Alterations and DM9 of the emerging Local Plan.
