STATEMENT FROM THE CHIEF PLANNER

Minutes:

“On 16th January 2019, the London Borough of Bromley adopted its new Bromley Local Plan (BLP). This means that the Local Plan now carries full weight as part of Bromley’s Development Plan, along with the adopted London Plan and parts of the Bromley Town Centre Area Action Plan (some policies in the latter are replaced in Local Plan).

 

Members will need to therefore ignore references to Unitary Development Plan (UDP) policies in the agenda this evening, as the UDP is no longer a development plan document, and give full weight to the Local Plan policies set out in each report. Although these are cited as draft policies, the Policy numbers and content is the same as when the reports were published.

 

We would also ask that Members agree to allow Officers delegated authority to update the Policy references in conditions and reasons for refusal prior to issuing any decisions from tonight’s meeting to ensure that they are up to date.”

 

MEMBERS AUTHORISED OFFICERS TO UPDATE THE POLICY REFERENCES UNDER THE CHIEF PLANNER’S DELEGATED AUTHORITY.

(18/03191/RECON) - Imani Court, 49 Park Avenue, Bromley, BR1 4EG. pdf icon PDF 124 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

REFUSED

Minutes:

Description of application – Removal of condition 13 (relating to Drawing No. PA-655-PD-SITE PLAN) of permission 17/01846/RECON allowed on appeal for the variation of conditions 3, 6, 8 and 9 (relating to soft landscaping, hard landscaping, waste and recycling facilities and cycle storage respectively) of permission 14/02727 allowed on appeal for the demolition of existing dwelling and erection of two/three storey building containing 3 no. 1 bed flats and 5 no. 2 bed flats with associated parking and landscaping.

 

Ward Member, Councillor Michael Turner, referred to the considerable history of the site as set out in the Chief Planner’s report and to the Planning Inspector’s decision (17/01846/RECON).  He was concerned that details of lighting and hard and soft landscaping had not been specified and that it would be out of character in the area and he objected to the application.

 

Councillor Simon Fawthrop’s view was that the Inspector had imposed Condition 13 for a reason and this application would breach that material consideration and he objected to the application.

 

The Chairman’s opinion was that the proposed application was minor.

 

Members considered to refuse this application contrary to the chief planner’s recommendation on the grounds that the proposal would differ from the allowed appeal scheme 17/01846/recon and as it had not been demonstrated that it would be in keeping with the character and appearance of the area (with particular regard to the external lighting and the hard and soft landscaping).

 

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

1.  The proposal fails to demonstrate that the resulting development would positively contribute to the existing street scene, landmarks or landscape features and would be detrimental to residential amenity of nearby residential properties and is therefore contrary to Policy 37 of the Bromley Local Plan.

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of existing conservatory and construction of single storey rear extension.

 

Oral representations in objection to the application were received at the meeting.  Comments from Ward Member, Councillor Kira Gabbert in objection to the application had been received and circulated to Members.

 

Councillor Fawthrop referred to pages 165 and 166 of the Chief Planner’s report with regard to Conditions 12 and 14 attached to the original permission (03/03957/OUT) that had been put in place to prevent an overdevelopment of the site and he objected to the application.  Councillor Michael Turner agreed with Councillor Fawthrop and also objected to the application.

 

Members expressed concern over the further enlargement of the dwelling over and above the size stated in the original outline permission. Members resolved to refuse this application contrary to the chief planner’s recommendation on the grounds that the proposed windows in the extension would result in significantly harmful overlooking to the neighbouring property.

 

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

1.  The development would fail to respect the privacy amenity of occupiers of neighbouring buildings by reason of overlooking contrary to Policy 37 of the Bromley Local Plan.
