This is unacceptable and contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1, DM3 and DM8 (as amended by the Technical Housing Standards Policy Transition Statement (2015)) of the Development Management Document (2015) and the advice contained within the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).
