Resolved:-

 

That OUTLINE planning permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions:

 

General conditions

 

01 Details of the appearance, scale, and landscaping (hereinafter called the "reserved matters") shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority before any development begins and the development shall be carried out as approved under the reserved matters. Application for approval of the reserved matters shall be made to the Local Planning Authority not later than 3 (three) years from the date of this permission. The development hereby permitted shall begin not later than 2 (two) years from the date of approval of the last of the reserved matters to be approved.

 

Reason: Required to be imposed pursuant to Section 92 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) and because the application is for outline planning permission only and the particulars submitted are insufficient for consideration of details mentioned.

 

02 The development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved plans: Location Plan; SEOS001 Rev 1; SEOS004.

 

Reason: To ensure the development is carried out in accordance with the development plan.

 

Design related conditions

 

03 Notwithstanding the details shown on the plans submitted and otherwise hereby approved the development hereby permitted shall not commence, other than for groundworks and site preparation works, unless and until full details of the materials to be used for all the external surfaces of the proposed buildings at the site including facing materials, roof detail, windows, doors, balustrading, fascia and balconies have been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The works must then be carried out in full accordance with the approved details before the dwellings hereby approved are first occupied.

 

Reason: To safeguard character and appearance of the area and the visual amenities of neighbouring occupiers in accordance with Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM3 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

04 Notwithstanding the details shown on the plans submitted and otherwise hereby approved the dwellinghouses hereby permitted shall not exceed 8.2m in height.

 

Reason: To safeguard the character and appearance of the area and the visual amenities of neighbouring occupiers plus aviation safety in accordance with Policies KP2 and CP4 of the Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1, DM3 and DM4 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

Minutes:

Proposal: Replace existing wooden sash windows with UPVC windows to all elevations (retrospective)

Applicant: Mr M Good and Ms C Harper

Agent: Mr Thomas Sharman of Smart Planning Ltd

 

Resolved:-

 

1. That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

01. The replacement windows, by reason of their materials and detailed design are considered to be detrimental to the historic character and significance of the existing property and the wider Leigh Conservation Area. The identified harm to the conservation area is less than substantial, albeit significant, and any public benefits arising from the development do not outweigh the identified harm. The development is contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), Policies KP2 and CP4 of Core Strategy (2007), Policies DM1 and DM5 of the Development Management Document (2015) and the Design and Townscape Guide (2009).

 

2. That ENFORCEMENT ACTION be AUTHORISED to require from anyone with an interest in the land (the site) to:

 

(a) remove the unauthorised windows UPVC; and

(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 six (6) months is considered reasonable for the removal of the unauthorised windows, considering that planning permission is required for the installation of new appropriate windows.
