Proposal: Erect dwellinghouse adjacent to existing dwellinghouse; install two vehicular accesses onto Aylesbeare, associated layout parking to front and rear (Amended Proposal).

Applicant: Mr Thompson

Agent: BGA Architects

 

Resolved:-

 

That PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

01 The proposed development by reason of its size, design and siting would conflict with the grain of the local area and would be out of keeping with and detract from the character and appearance of the site and wider locale. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework; Core Strategy (2007) policies KP2 and CP4; Development Management Document (2015) policies DM1 and DM3 and the advice contained within the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

02 The proposed development would, by reason of the height of the proposed boundary treatments and relationship to the proposed vehicular crossovers  create conditions detrimental to highway and pedestrian safety. The proposal would also require the relocation of a light column which has not been justified. The proposed development is therefore unacceptable and contrary to policy CP3 of the Core Strategy (2007), policies DM3 and DM15 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained in the Vehicle Crossing Policy and Application Guidance (2014).

 

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. 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 and is also willing to provide pre-application advice in respect of any future application for a revised development, should the applicant wish to exercise this option in accordance with the Council's pre-application advice service.

 

Informatives

 

Please note that this application would be liable for a payment under the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) if planning permission had been granted. Therefore if an appeal is lodged and subsequently allowed, the CIL liability will be applied. Any revised application might also be CIL liable.
