In Councillor Scoates’ opinion the jet wash was in the wrong location with cars washed in close proximity to the neighbour’s residential property.  He reported that the noise emitted from the air conditioning unit was unbearable preventing the neighbour from opening windows at night and he was disappointed that the applicant had not co-operated in alleviating concerns.

 

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

1.  The proposed air handling unit, by reason of its unacceptable level of noise generation and disturbance, would result in a detrimental impact upon the amenities of the adjoining neighbours thereby contrary to Policy BE1 of the Unitary Development Plan and 7.15 of the London Plan.
