Minutes:

Proposal: Raise roof height, alter roof to form habitable accommodation in roofspace, erect dormer with recessed balcony to rear and alter elevations (amended proposal)

Applicant: Mr and Mrs Osbourne

Agent: Mr Ian Boorman of SL Architectural

 

Resolved:-

 

That PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

The proposal, by reason of the appearance, design, scale, form and bulk of the enlarged and altered roof, would result in an incongruous and unsympathetic addition that does not relate satisfactorily to the existing dwelling, the character and appearance of the wider Leigh and Leigh Old Town Conservation Areas or the setting of the adjacent statutory listed building. The harm caused would be less than substantial but nevertheless significant and is not outweighed by any public benefits. The development is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), policies DM1, DM3, DM5 and DM6 of the Development Management Document (2015) and advice contained within the adopted Design and Townscape Guide (2009) and the Leigh Conservation Area Appraisal (2010).

 

Informatives:

 

01 You are advised that as the proposed extension(s) to your property equates to less than 100sqm of new floorspace the development benefits from a Minor Development Exemption under the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) and as such no charge is payable. See www.southend.gov.uk/cil for further details about CIL.

 

The Local Planning Authority has acted positively and proactively in determining this application by identifying matters of concern with the proposal and discussing those with the Applicant.  Unfortunately, it has not been possible to resolve those matters within the timescale allocated for the determination of this planning application and therefore, the proposal is not considered to be sustainable development. However, the Local Planning Authority has clearly set out, within its report, the steps necessary to remedy the harm identified within the reasons for refusal - which may lead to the submission of a more acceptable proposal in the future.  The Local Planning Authority is willing to provide pre-application advice in respect of any future application for a revised development.

Reason: To protect the privacy and environment of people in neighbouring residential properties, in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Southend-on-Sea Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the Southend-on-Sea Design and Townscape Guide (2009).
