Oral representations in support of contest the appeal were received.  Oral representations from Ward Member, Councillor Peter Dean in support of contest the appealwere received at the meeting.  It was reported that a further objection from a local resident had been received that had been summarised in the Chief Planner’s report.

 

This landmark site that had been used as a car showroom over many years and Councillor Dean referred to extant permission (16/02988/FULL1) approved on 5 December 2016.  He also referred to the vast number of objections received from local residents and groups that had been summarised on pages 29 to 35 of the Chief Planner’s report and to paragraphs 26 and 27 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

Councillor Dean objected to the potential increase in opening hours and traffic congestion and drew Members’ attention to Highway Division’s strong objections on pages 45 and 46 of the Chief Planner’s report and he also objected to the significant impact the intended use would have on local businesses being next to a small shopping parade. His view was that potential noise and loss of light would also be unacceptable to local residents. 

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that the APPEAL be CONTESTED as recommended, on the grounds set out in the report of the Chief Planner.

CONTEST APPEAL

 

 

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of 128-130 Jackson Road and outbuildings and redevelopment with a 2 storey terrace of four 3 bedroom dwellinghouses with associated landscaping, parking, cycle and refuse stores and boundary treatments.

 

Councillor Michael acknowledged that a further application had been submitted but had yet to be validated but she was still of the opinion that the proposed development was inappropriate for the site, out of character in the street scene and would overlook 10 Hathaway Close.  At Plans Sub-Committee 3 on 21 December 2017 the application had been deferred for the erection of three small detached cottage style dwellings with pitched rooves and Councillors Michael and Joel were disappointed that the applicant had not taken this into consideration and supported the appeal being contested

 

Members having considered the report and objections, RESOLVED TO CONTEST THE APPEAL on the following ground:-

“1.  The proposal would result in a cramped overdevelopment of the site, out of character with the surrounding area and harmful to the amenities of local residents, contrary to Policies H7 and BE1 of the UDP, Draft Policy 4 and 37 of the Emerging Local Plan and Policies 7.4 and 7.6 of the London Plan.
