Decision:

REFUSED

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of No 9 Jail Lane and redevelopment (including land to the rear of No 7 Jail Lane) to provide 8 dwellings comprising two semi-detached and six terraced 3/4 bedroom houses with associated vehicular access, garaging, parking and landscaping.

 

Oral representations in support of the application were received. Oral representations from Ward Member Councillor Melanie Stevens in objection to the application were received at the meeting.

 

Comments from Ward Member, Councillor Julian Benington in objection to the application were received and circulated at the meeting.

 

Noting the importance of design, Councillor Fawthrop referred to an appeal decision for 19/02488/FULL1 (APP/G5180/W/19/3238072) 102 Poverest Road, Orpington and suggested that by reason of comparison, this document be submitted alongside any appeal for 9 Jail Lane.

 

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

 

1. The proposal constitutes an unsatisfactory sub-division of the plot resulting in a development by its design that is out of character with the surrounding area, resulting in a retrograde lowering in the spatial standards to which the area is at present developed, thereby contrary to Policies 3, 4 and 37 of the Local Plan and Policies 7.4 and 7.6 of the London Plan.

It was reported that further objections to the application had been received and circulated to Members.

 

It was also reported that updated drawings had been received and circulated to Members.

 

The Development Management Area Team Leader reported that the application currently being considered related solely to the monopole and therefore the recommended condition 5 should be removed. 

 

Committee Member and Ward Member Councillor Terry spoke in objection to the application and circulated comparable appeal decisions which supported a case for refusal. Councillor Terry’s comments, together with the circulated documents can be viewed at Annex A to these Minutes. 

 

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

 

1 The proposed equipment, by reason of its height, siting and design, would constitute an obtrusive and highly prominent feature in the street scene that appears out of character and is detrimental to the visual and residential amenities of the surrounding area. This is contrary to Policies 37 and 89 of the Bromley Local Plan.
