Description of application – Erection of garden room.
Oral representations in objection to the application were received at the meeting.
Councillor Peter Dean referred to the removal of Permitted Development rights in 1997 that prevented large inappropriate developments. An extension to the house had previously been added and in Councillor Dean’s opinion the proposed development was overdominant and would have a negative impact on neighbouring properties. Councillor Kate Lymer agreed and said that it would set an unwelcome precedent.
Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE REFUSED as recommended, for the following reason:-
1. The proposal would be overdominant and adversely harmful to the adjacent Metropolitan Open Land and Site of Interest for Nature Conservation, and would be detrimental to the amenities that the occupiers of adjoining properties might reasonably expect to be able continue to enjoy by reason of visual impact, loss of privacy and amenity in view of its size, height, siting and extent of glazing, thereby contrary to Policies BE1, NE2 and G6 of Bromley's Unitary Development Plan.
