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

 

1   The application is contrary to Policy H10 Appendix 1 paragraph 1.2(i) in that the development erodes the individual quality and character of the ASRC in that it introduces basement developments into both the Conservation Area and ASRC when none currently exist, severely eroding the nature and Character of the area.

 

2  The application is contrary to Policy BE11 in that it does not respect or compliment the layout, scale, form and materials of existing buildings and spaces, nor does it respect and incorporate the design, existing landscape or other features that contribute to the character, appearance or historic value of the Chislehurst Road Conservation Area in that there are no basements existing with the conservation area.

 

3  The density exceeds that in the surrounding area in breach of Policy H7 table 4.2 and H10 Appendix 1 paragraph 1.2 (ii) residential density shall accord with that existing in the area.

 

4  The proposal by reason of the introduction of a basement, represents a harmful destruction of a heritage asset as set out in Barnwell Manor Wind Energy Ltd v East Northamptonshire District Council and Others [2014] EWCA Civ 137 contrary to Policy BE11, H8 and H9 of the Unitary Development Plan.

 

5  The application would be seriously detrimental to the history, architecture and character of the Chislehurst Road Conservation Area contrary to Policy BE11 of the Unitary Development Plan.
