Minutes:

Description of application – Retention of modular buildings in revised location.

 

Oral representations in support of the application were received at the meeting.  Members referred to the planning and appeal history of the site.  The Chairman, Councillors Michael, Auld and Joel were all of the opinion that even with screening the modular building would be dominant and detrimental to the amenities of local residents.  At Plans Sub-Committee 3 on 31 August 2017 Councillor Joel had suggested the addition of cladding and to turn the modular ninety degrees to improve visual amenity.

 

Councillor Onslow reported that he and his fellow two Ward Members and the National Health Service supported the application and only the occupier of the property next to the site objected to the application, whose property had been purchased after the modular building had been erected. He said this facility was important to the local residents being near a local shopping parade with adequate parking.  To turn the modular building ninety degrees would cost approximately £40,000 and in his opinion the proposed screening was adequate.

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED as recommended, for the reasons set out in the report of the Chief Planner.

Minutes:

Description of application – Change of use from bar and restaurant (Use Class A3) to a Hot Food Takeaway (Use Class A5) together with minor external alterations comprising a replacement condenser unit, replacement extract flue and redecoration of the shopfront.

 

It was reported that a late legal objection from the current occupier of the site had been received and circulated to Members. It was reported that the first sentence of the last paragraph on page 88 of the Chief Planner’s report should be amended to read, “The current use operates primarily in the evening between the hours of 16.30-10.00 am Monday to Friday and from 16.30-23.00 on Saturdays and Sundays.”

 

Councillors Michael and Auld were concerned the change of use from a bar and restaurant to a hot food takeaway would result in sixty percent of moped deliveries and forty percent of customer collections and would cause considerable noise and disturbance to local residents and they objected to the application.

 

Members having considered the report and objections, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED for the following reason:-

1.  The proposal, by reason of the additional noise and disturbance associated with activities relating to the proposed use, would have an adverse impact on the residential amenities of occupants of nearby properties contrary to Policy BE1 of the Unitary Development Plan and Policy 37 of the Draft Local Plan.

Oral representations in objection to the application were received at the meeting.  A late submission from the agent had been received and circulated to Members.

 

This section of Jackson Road consisted of older dwellings in a semi-rural setting and Ward Member, Councillor Michael’s view, was that the proposed development would be an inappropriate overdevelopment of the site that would change the character of the road and overlook 10 Hathaway Close and she objected to the application.

 

Councillor Auld had visited the site.  Councillors Auld and Joel’s view was that the site was developable and they agreed with Councillor Michael that it would be an over development of the site and preferred a reduction to three units of the same size to prevent overlooking. 

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that THE APPLICATION BE DEFERRED, without prejudice to any future consideration, to SEEK THE SUBMISSION OF REVISED PLANS FOR THE ERECTION OF THREE SMALL DETACHED COTTAGE STYLE DWELLINGS WITH PITCHED ROOFS.

Description of application – Installation of a new shopfront (RETROSPECTIVE APPLICATION).

 

Oral representations from Ward Member, Councillor Stephen Wells, in objection to the application were received at the meeting.  Councillor Wells referred to the shop’s history, the current retrospective application in the conservation area, and previous planning refusals.  The modern style shop front had changed the traditional character of the High Street and surrounding area and he was concerned that insufficient enforcement action had been taken.  He stressed that Leaseholders should respect their obligations in conservation areas and seek prior planning permission.

 

Ward Member, Councillor Mellor, said it was a contentious issue and he suggested the application be deferred in order that the applicant be given an opportunity to respect Policy BE11.

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that THE APPLICATION BE DEFERRED, without prejudice to any future consideration, to seek an amended and improved design to be more in keeping with the Beckenham Town Centre Conservation Area.

Councillor Auld had independently visited the site on two occasions but he,  Councillor Fawthrop and Petts Wood Residents’ Association all concluded the proposed development was over dominant, not subservient to the host dwelling and the roof light was contrary to the existing guidelines of the Petts Wood Area of Special Residential Character policy (Appendix 1 1.2 (vii).

REFUSED

 

Minutes:

Description of application – Roof alterations to accommodate a new bedroom and wash room. Alterations include increase ridge height, new rear dormer and roof lights.

 

Councillor Michael said that number 98 Lower Gravel Road was larger than the surrounding modest sized houses and referred to the history of the site and the reduction in height following a previous application but her view was that the proposed development was over-dominant that would be detrimental to the privacy and amenity of Numbers 96 and 100 Lower Gravel Road and she objected to the application.  Councillor Onslow agreed with Councillor Michael and also objected to the application.

 

Councillor Joel had visited the site and supported the application.

 

Members having considered the report and objections, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED for the following reason:-

1.  The proposal would result in an overdominant addition to host dwelling and an overdevelopment of the site, and would give rise to an unacceptable degree of overlooking and loss of privacy and amenity to the occupiers of neighbouring properties, contrary to Policies H8 and BE1 of the Unitary Development Plan and Policies 6 and 37 of the Draft Local Plan.

Minutes:

Description of application – Introduction of seating to the first floor of the property and change of use of first floor to function room / additional restaurant seating in connection with the use of the ground floor as a restaurant and insertion of external door to first floor in rear elevation.

 

Oral representations in objection to retrospective applications 17/02751/FULL1, 17/02753/FULL1 and 17/02755/FULL1 were received. 

 

Oral representations from Ward Member, Councillor Stephen Wells, in objection to retrospective applications 17/02751/FULL1, 17/02753/FULL1 and 17/02755/FULL1 were also received at the meeting.  He said that the odour and noise from the extraction system required for the change of use to the first floor constituted a nuisance.  There was no sound proofing to the first floor openings to the rear of the restaurant, the windows to the ground floor were not double glazed and the noise was detrimental to the neighbours’ amenity and prevented young children sleeping up until 2 am.  The extension to the ground floor at the rear of the property was ‘shed like’ and had a retractable awning. In this area customers drank and smoked shisha and the music played through speakers caused profound noise and disturbance to local residents.  Councillor Wells’ view was that the site had moved towards being a night club and was no longer a restaurant and he objected to the three retrospective applications and suggested they should be refused and enforcement action commenced.

 

Councillor Mellor reminded Members that permission had previously been granted for the first floor restaurant and he agreed with Councillor Wells’ and objected to the application.

 

Councillors Auld and Joel also objected to the application.

 

The Chief Planner’s representative advised Members that enforcement action in respect of the use on the ground floor was in progress.

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED as recommended, for the reasons set out in the report of the Chief Planner.

 

Councillor Mellor requested that the case officer be praised for dealing with this site and the report in a very thorough and precise manner over some considerable time.

Additional documents:

Decision:

REFUSED

 

Minutes:

Description of application – Erection of a detached single storey three bedroom dwelling on land rear of 76-80 Crescent Drive with vehicular access onto Shepperton Road.

 

Comments from Ward Member, Councillor Simon Fawthrop in objection to the application were reported and had been circulated to Members.  It was reported that a late submission from the agent had been received and circulated to Members.

 

Ward Member, Councillor Auld, referred to the planning and appeal history of the site.  He also referred to his local knowledge and was concerned that Highways Division had not objected to the application as the area around the proposed vehicular access onto Shepperton Road was a bus route with heavy car parking and it was impossible to see traffic as there was no visibility.

 

 

The Chief Planner’s representative advised Members that neither Highways Division, officers nor the appeal inspector had raised highway/traffic concerns in the four previously refused applications and was mindful to prevent costs being incurred if a highways/traffic reason for refusal was introduced.

 

Members having considered the report and objections, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED as recommended, for the reason set out in the report of the Chief Planner with a further reason to read:-

REASON 2:  Based on local knowledge of the site it is considered that the proposed means of vehicular access would not be in the interests of good highway planning and would have poor visibility onto Shepperton Road, prejudicial to the free flow of traffic and conditions of general safety in the highway, contrary to Policies T9, T11 and T18 of the Unitary Development Plan, Policies 32, 33 and 34 of the emerging Local Plan, and Local Knowledge.
