Proposal: Convert existing first floor flat into two self-contained flats, install dormer to rear to form a further self-contained flat in loftspace

Applicant: Mr Gavin Eade

Agent: Mr Adrian Arand of AAV Architecture

 

Mr Wilson, a local resident, spoke as an objector to the application.  Mr Atkinson, the Applicant, responded.

 

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

 

01  The proposed L-shaped dormer would, by reason of its size, height, form and design, fail to appear as an incidental addition to the roof of the host dwelling and would be significantly out of keeping with and harmful to the character and appearance of the existing building rear garden scene and local area. This would be unacceptable and contrary to 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 guidance contained within the Southend-on-Sea Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

02  The proposed dwelling in the roof space would be capable of being occupied by two persons as the size of the bedroom would exceed the minimum area for a double or twin bedroom in the Technical Housing Standards – Nationally Described Space Standards (2015). The internal floor area proposed for the dwelling would be insufficient in size for two-person occupation. In addition, the development would result in a poor standard of accommodation for future occupiers of the development as result of the lack of amenity space, cycle parking and waste storage facilities, to the significant detriment of the living conditions of future occupiers. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007); Polices DM1, DM3 and DM8 of the Development Management Document (2015) as amended by the Technical Housing Standards Policy Transition Statement (2015) and the advice contained within the Southend-on-Sea Design and Townscape Guide (2009) and the Technical Housing Standards – Nationally Described Space Standard (2015).

 

03  The proposed development would provide insufficient on-site parking to meet the needs of future occupiers and the minimum parking standards. This would be likely to result in additional vehicles parking within the public highway, to the detriment of highway safety and the free flow of traffic. Insufficient information has been submitted to demonstrate that the short fall in parking could be justified. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021); Policies CP3 of the Core Strategy (2007); Polices DM1, DM3 and DM15 of the Development Management Document (2015)

 

Positive and Proactive Statement:

 

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 detailed analysis is set out in a report on the application  ...  view the full minutes text for item 412.

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

 

03  Notwithstanding the details shown on the plans submitted and otherwise hereby approved, prior to the first use of the hardstanding for parking vehicles, its surface shall be finished in external surface materials the purpose of which is to reduce the existing hardstanding’s starkness, the details and specifications of which have previously been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority under the provisions of this condition.

 

Reason: To ensure the development is carried out in accordance with the consent sought, has an acceptable design and complies with policy DM1 of the Development Management Document (2015), advice in the National Design Guide (2021) and the Southend-on-Sea Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

04  The area of hardstanding hereby approved shall only be used as a parking area for a single vehicle.

 

Reason: To ensure the provision of adequate vehicle parking in the interests of highway safety in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Core Strategy (2007) Policy CP3 and Development Management Document (2015) Policies DM3 and DM15.

 

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.

Breach of Control: Without planning permission, the installation of radio antennae to the property

 

Resolved:- That ENFORCEMENT ACTION be AUTHORISED to secure the following:

 

(a)  the removal of the three (3) poles and antennae attached to the north flank wall of the building; and

(b)  the removal of the two (2) poles and antennae attached to the rear elevation of the building; and

(c)  the removal of the two free-standing poles and antennae from the rear part of the site; and

(d)  the removal from site all materials and debris resulting from compliance with requirement (a), (b) and (c) above.

 

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. Whilst proceedings could be brought in isolation against the sole remaining antenna at the site subject of the 2014 enforcement notice, it is considered that it would be sensible for any prosecution in that regard to take account of the enforcement action against the wider collection of antennae now on site including whether compliance is achieved through those means.

 

When serving an Enforcement Notice the Local Planning Authority must ensure a reasonable time for compliance. In this case a compliance period of 28 days is considered reasonable for the above works.
