Positive and Proactive Statement

 

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

See www.southend.gov.uk/cil for further details about the Levy.

 

02 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 city.

Proposal: Change of use from storage/distribution (Class B8) to tyre sales and fitting (Sui Generis) (Retrospective) (Amended Proposal).

Applicant: Mr Karsaz Hassan

Agent: Nicholas Kingsley Smith of Kingsley Smith Solicitors LLP

 

Resolved:

 

REFUSE PLANNING PERMISSION for the following reason(s):

 

01 Inadequate information has been provided to demonstrate that the proposed development would not result in significant and demonstrable harm to the residential amenity of neighbouring occupiers including nos.22-24 The Rodings and 6-7 Rodings Close, in terms of noise disturbance. This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Policies KP1, KP2, and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007) and Policies DM1, DM3 and DM11 of the Development Management Document (2015).

 

Informatives:

 

1 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.

 

2 As the proposal is for a change of use without the creation of additional floorspace or the creation of a residential unit, the development would not be CIL liable.

Breach of planning control:  unauthorised side extension

 

Resolved:

 

That Enforcement action be authorised to:

 

a)    Remove the unauthorised side extension in its entirety, and

b)    remove from site all materials resulting from compliance with a)

 

The authorised enforcement action to include (if/as necessary) the service of an Enforcement Notice under Section 172 of the Act and the pursuance of proceedings whether by prosecution or injunction to secure compliance with the requirements of the Enforcement Notice.

 

When serving an Enforcement Notice the Local Planning Authority must ensure a reasonable time for compliance. In this case a compliance period of 3 months is considered reasonable for the demolition of the unauthorised side extension.

In this particular case it is considered reasonable, expedient, and proportionate and in the public interest to pursue enforcement action on the grounds set out in the formal recommendation.
