Description of application – Detached timber outbuilding.

 

Oral representations in objection to and in support of the application were received at the meeting.  Neighbours had been re-notified of the amended plans and further six objections and twenty-two comments in support of the application had been received, details of which repeated comments contained in the Chief Planner’s report.  The applicant had also submitted further supporting information and photographs that had been circulated to Members.

 

Councillor Simon Fawthrop had spoken to this application at the meeting of Plans Sub-Committee 4 on 25 May 2017 when the application had been deferred by Members and, in his view, it was still an overdevelopment. 

The Chairman had also spoken at that meeting and referred to the Inspector’s comments at a previous appeal regarding Urban Open Space policy and whilst she appreciated there had been a reduction in the proposed outbuilding, in her view, it was insufficient and would affect the visual amenity of other local residents.

 

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

1.  The proposed outbuilding, by reason of its size and position, serves to undermine the open visual qualities of the estate layout, is harmful to the Urban Open Space designation and fails to preserve or enhance the character and appearance of the St Paul's Cray Conservation Area, contrary to Policies BE1, G8 and BE11 of the Unitary Development Plan.
