Proposal: Erect two dwellinghouses incorporating garages to side to rear of 26 and 30 Lime Avenue with amenity space to rear and install additional vehicular access to front of 30 Lime Avenue

Applicant: Mr Bishop and Mr Avery

Agent: Mrs Lindsey Wislocki of Hedgehog Development

 

S Bennet spoke as an objector to the application, S Avery responded.

 

Resolved:-

 

That PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

01 The proposed development by reason of its siting and layout would materially conflict with the grain of the local area, would appear incongruous and be materially out of keeping with and detract from the character and appearance of the site and wider surrounding area. This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Southend-on-Sea Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Southend-on-Sea Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the National Design Guide (2019) and the Southend Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

02 The proposed development, in particular the northern dwelling, by reason of its position and upper floor window arrangements, would result in material harm to the residential amenity of neighbouring occupiers at 2 Belfairs Close, due to overlooking and material loss of privacy. This is an unacceptable form of development which is contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019); Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Southend-on-Sea Core Strategy (2007) and Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Southend-on-Sea Development Management Document (2015).

 

03 The proposed development, in particular the northern dwelling, by reason of its siting and relationship with 2 Belfairs Close, would result in overlooking which would be detrimental to the living conditions of the intended future occupiers of the proposed dwelling. This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1, DM3 and DM8 (as amended by the Technical Housing Standards Policy Transition Statement (2015)) of the Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

04 The proposal fails to demonstrate that the development would not result in the loss of local ecological assets including wildlife habitats. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP1, KP2 and CP4 of the Southend-on-Sea Core Strategy (2007) and Polices DM1, DM3 and DM14 of the Southend-on-Sea Development Management Document (2015).

 

The Local Planning Authority has acted positively and proactively in determining this application by identifying matters of concern with the proposal and determining the application within a timely manner, clearly setting out the reason(s) for refusal, allowing the Applicant the opportunity to consider the harm caused and whether or not it can be remedied by a revision to the proposal.  The detailed analysis is set out in a report prepared by officers. In the circumstances the proposal is not considered to be sustainable development. The Local Planning Authority is willing to discuss the best course of action via the pre-application  ...  view the full minutes text for item 358.

Applicant: Mr Ben Page

Agent: Mr Luis Mulry of Edith Garland Architecture

 

Cllr Jones withdrew from the meeting for this agenda item.

 

Cllr Buck withdrew from the rest of the meeting (Note: Agenda item Nos.18 and 19 were taken first, Cllr Buck was present for these items)

 

Resolved:-

 

That PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

The development would, by reason of its internal layout, design and the level of facilities provided, fail to provide an adequate standard of living conditions for its future occupiers to the detriment of their amenity. This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework, Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the Essex HMO Amenity Standards (30 July 2018).

 

The Local Planning Authority has acted positively and proactively in determining this application by identifying matters of concern with the proposal and determining the application within a timely manner, clearly setting out the reason(s) for refusal, allowing the Applicant the opportunity to consider the harm caused and whether or not it can be remedied by a revision to the proposal. The detailed analysis is set out in a report prepared by officers. In the circumstances the proposal is not considered to be sustainable development. The Local Planning Authority is willing to discuss the best course of action.

 

Informatives

 

The development would benefit from a Minor Development Exemption under the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) and as such no charge would be payable. See www.southend.gov.uk/cil for further details about CIL.
