Proposal: Erect four storey building comprising 9no. flats with undercroft car park and reconfigure car park to rear of Baryta House

Applicant: Shaviram Southend Ltd

Agent: Mr Daniel Rose of D. Rose Planning LLP

 

Resolved:-

 

That PLANNING PERMISSION be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

  1. The proposed development, by reason of the inadequate and poor quality external amenity spaces provided would result in substandard living conditions for the future occupiers of the site, providing a poor quality residential environment. The proposal is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1, DM3 and DM8 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

  1. The proposed development would provide insufficient parking for the proposed self-contained flats and the existing flats at the site to the material detriment of highway safety and free flow of the local highway network. The development is therefore unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policy CP3 of the Core Strategy (2007) and Policy DM15 of the Development Management Document (2015).

Breaches of Control: Without planning permission, the conversion of a single dwelling to 3 self-contained flats

 

Cllr Wakefield withdrew from the meeting for this agenda item

 

Resolved:-

 

That ENFORCEMENT ACTION be AUTHORISED to:

 

a)    Cease the unauthorised use of the building as 3 self-contained flats.

b)    Remove from site all materials resulting from compliance with a) 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.

 

When serving an Enforcement Notice the local planning authority must ensure a reasonable time for compliance. In this case a compliance period of 4 months is considered reasonable for the cessation of use as 3 self-contained flats.

 

Taking enforcement action in this case may amount to an interference with the owners’ and/or occupiers’ Human Rights. However, it is necessary for the local planning authority to balance the rights of the owners and/or occupiers against its legitimate aims to regulate and control land within its area. 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.
