Decision:

REFUSED AND ENFORCEMENT ACTION AUTHORISED

Minutes:

Description of application – Part one/two storey detached 4 bedroom dwelling with 2 detached carports on land to the rear of The Pentlands fronting Woodlands Close RETROSPECTIVE APPLICATION.

 

Oral representations from Ward Member, Councillor Kira Gabbert, in objection to the application were received at the meeting.  She referred to the planning and appeal history of the site.  Application 02/03072/FULL1 had been refused but allowed on appeal in July 2003.  The proposals were not implemented within the five year time limit, and the permission lapsed. Application 13/02200/FULL1 had been permitted but the roof line differed from the approved plans and two detached carports had been built rather than the basement garage and her view was that the provision of two garages was essential.

Councillor Gabbert objected to the size, scale and layout being cramped, that would have a negative impact and out of character with the conservation area.  She pointed out that the Advisory Panel for Conservation Areas has objected to the 2013 application and also to the current application and asked Members to refuse the application and to consider enforcement action.

 

The Chairman read an extract from the appeal decision that confirmed Inspector had wanted to retain as much land as possible and the Chairman objected to the two car ports.

 

Councillors Fawthrop, Michael and Onslow agreed with Councillor Gabbert’s view that the application should be refused and enforcement action should be considered.

 

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

1.  The proposal would constitute a bulky, cramped overdevelopment of the site, out of keeping with the character of surrounding residential development, and detrimental to the spatial standards of this part of the Bickley Park Conservation Area contrary to Policies BE1, BE11, H7 and H9 of the Unitary Development Plan, draft policies 3, 8, 37 and 41 of the emerging local plan and the Supplementary Planning Guidance for the Conservation Area.

 

It was FURTHER RESOLVED that ENFORCEMENT ACTION BE AUTHORISED.
