Agenda item

20/00315/FUL - Baryta House, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea (Victoria Ward)

Minutes:

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).
