Minutes:

Proposal: Demolish existing dwelling and erect building comprising

7no. apartments, layout parking, landscaping, cycle and

refuse storage and form vehicular crossover onto Thames

Drive (Amended Proposal)

Applicant: P + PR Property Developments Ltd

Agent: BDA Architecture

 

Resolved:- That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

01  The proposed development, by reason of its excessive scale, form, mass, footprint, siting and poor design would have a significant detrimental impact on the grain, character and appearance of the site and the wider area and would be an over scaled, prominent and incongruous addition to the streetscene. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1, DM3 and DM6 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

02  The development offers no reasonable mitigation of the in-combination effect of the net increase of six dwellings on habitats and species in accordance with the Habitats Regulations as identified in the adopted Essex Coast Recreational Disturbance Avoidance and Mitigation Strategy (RAMS) SPD (2020). This is unacceptable and contrary to the RAMS, and Policies KP1, KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy and Policy DM6 of the Development Management Document which seek to protect the natural environment with specific reference to the coastal habitats.

 

Informatives

 

1. 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 would also be CIL liable.

 

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.

Proposal: Erect part single/part two storey rear extension, raise part of ridge height, hip to gable roof extension to rear and form habitable accommodation in roof space, rooflights to side elevations, alter elevations and form porch canopy to front (Amended Proposal)

Applicant: G Steptoe

Agent: Mr Colin Stone of Stone Me Ltd

 

Resolved:- That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

1. The proposed development by reason of scale, bulky appearance and design fails to integrate with the existing dwelling or respect the context of the site in relation to the wider area.  As a result, the proposal would appear as an unduly prominent and discordant building, out of keeping with adjacent dwellings and the wider streetscene and results in overdevelopment of the site. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Core Strategy (2007) Policies KP1, KP2 and CP4, Development Management Document (2015) Policies DM1 and DM3 and the advice contained with the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

01 The development hereby permitted shall begin not later than three years from the date of this decision.

 

Reason: Required to be imposed pursuant to Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

 

02 The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans: D01 E, D02 E, D03 E, D04 E, D05 E, D06 E.

 

Reason: To ensure that the development is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Development Plan.

 

03 All new work to the outside of the building must match existing original work in terms of the choice of materials, method of construction and finished appearance. This applies unless differences are shown on the drawings hereby approved or are required by conditions to this permission.

 

Reason: in the interests of visual amenities further to the National Planning Policy Framework, 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 Southend-on-Sea Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

The Local Planning Authority has acted positively and proactively in determining this application by assessing the proposal against all material considerations, including planning policies and any representations that may have been received and subsequently determining to grant planning permission in accordance with the presumption in favour of sustainable development, as set out within the National Planning Policy Framework.  The detailed analysis is set out in a report on the application prepared by officers.

 

Informatives:

 

01.      You should be aware that in cases where damage occurs during construction works to the highway in implementing this permission that Council may seek to recover the cost of repairing public highways and footpaths from any party responsible for damaging them. This includes damage carried out when implementing a planning permission or other works to buildings or land. Please take care when carrying out works on or near the public highways and footpaths in the borough.

 

02.      You are advised that as the proposed extension(s) or change of use to your property equates to less than 100sqm of new floorspace, and does not involve the creation of a new dwelling (Class C3), 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 the Planning Portal (www.planningportal.co.uk/info/200136/policy_and_legislation/70/community_infrastructure_levy), or the Council's website (www.southend.gov.uk/cil) for further details about CIL.

Minutes:

Proposal: Erect part single/part two storey side and rear extension, alter elevations (amended proposal)

Applicant: Mr & Mrs Matthew & Sarah Harding

Agent: Mr Danny Knott

 

Mr Abdul, a local resident spoke as an objector to the application.

 

Resolved:- That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

01 The proposed first floor side windows to the east flank elevation of the development would give rise to actual and perceived overlooking of neighbouring rear garden areas of Nos. 233 and 235 Prittlewell Chase, significantly harmful to the privacy and rear garden enjoyment of those neighbouring occupants. This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Southend Core Strategy (2007) policies KP2 and CP4, Southend Development Management Document (2015) policies DM1 and DM3 and the advice contained with the Southend Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

02 By reason of its size, siting, scale and relationship with the existing annex structure within the rear garden, the proposed development would appear as an unduly prominent, discordant and obtrusive feature, harmful to the character and appearance of the existing property and the wider streetscene and would also represent significant overdevelopment of the application site. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Core Strategy (2007) Policies KP1, KP2 and CP4, Development Management Document (2015) Policies DM1 and DM3 and the advice contained with the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

Reason: To protect the privacy and environment of people in neighbouring residential properties, in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).
