REFUSED

Minutes:

.

Description of application - Removal of condition 8 of permission 18/04731/FULL6 (granted for the demolition of existing side garage and extension, and rear extension. Two storey front/side extension and part two storey/single storey rear extension) relating to the removal of permitted development rights.

 

Oral representations in objection to and in support of the application were received at the meeting.  Supplementary photographs had been received from the objector and an email dated 20 November 2019 had been received from the applicant.  An email had also been received from Councillor Fawthrop dated 21 November 2019 that contained his alleged factual inaccuracies in the applicant’s email.  The Assistant Director Planning’s representative circulated replies to Councillor Fawthrop’s alleged inaccuracies to Members.

 

The Chairman and Councillor Owen had visited the site.  The removal of permitted development rights did not prohibit any future application for further development and each application would be treated on its merits and the effect on the neighbouring dwelling.

 

Councillor Terry referred to the difference in land levels between the two sites and the neighbouring amenity and the Area of Special Residential Character.

 

Councillor Owen said that the site could not be appreciated from the street view and referred to the Ordnance Survey Plan on page 117 of the report.  He also referred to the second photograph received from the objector that showed loss of daylight to a rear first floor room and his view was that the development caused serious damage to the amenity of the neighbour and permitted development rights had been removed to protect the neighbour and he moved refusal.

 

Councillor Onslow seconded refusal.

 

Councillor Michael said that no site was identical and it was not a material consideration to consider if other local sites in the vicinity had had permitted development rights removed. The removal of permitted development rights afforded a degree of protection and control in the Area of Special Residential Character

 

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

1.  The removal of restricted permitted development rights under Condition 8 would likely result in development that would impact detrimentally on the residential amenities of neighbouring residents, particularly Number 77 Lynwood Grove as a result of the significant differences in ground levels and would also be harmful to the character and appearance of the area, contrary to Policies 6, 8, 37 and 44 of the Council's Local Plan (2019). 

 

The vote for refusal was unanimous.

REFUSED

 

Minutes:

Description of application – Replacement of existing dwelling with two detached dwellings with associated access, parking and landscaping.

 

Oral representations in objection to and in support of the application were received at the meeting.  The Assistant Director Planning’s representative reported that late comments had been received from the Tree Officer. 

 

The Chairman drew Members’ attention to Policy 3 of the Bromley Local Plan and suggested Members take into consideration whether the proposed development were a backland garden development and also to consider the Area of Special Residential Character.

 

Ward Member, Councillor Owen, referred to the Ordnance Survey Plan on page 137 of the Assistant Director Planning’s report and his view was that the proposed development on the small plot of land was an overdevelopment and would affect the character of the area, contrary to paragraphs (i), (ii), (iii), (vi) of the Petts Wood Area of Special Residential Character guidance and also failed to comply with Policies 3 and 44 of the Local Plan.

 

He read out many of the objections from pages 120 and 121 of the report and referred to the reasons for previously refused application 15/03933/FULL1 set out on page 124.

 

Councillor Owen also referred to page 126, the second and third paragraphs, Policies 3 and 4 and objected to the application for the following reasons:-

 

·  the site layout,

·  the quality of the surrounding area

·  backland development

·  lack of amenity space

·  the overall quality of the area

·  width separation

·  out of character with the area

 

Further, Councillor Owen referred to paragraphs 2 and 3 on Page 129 of the report and drew Members’ attention to the angle within the respective plots.  He objected to application and proposed refusal for all the above reasons and also for being an overdevelopment, out of character and that the proposed development did not fit the garden suburb and he requested that a copy of the extract from The Bromley Local Plan with regard to The Petts Wood Area of Special Residential Character be appended to these minutes, ‘Annex A’

 

Ward Member, Councillor Onslow, agreed with Councillor Owen and seconded refusal.

 

Councillor Charles Joel had visited the site and his view was that the site was not backland, it merited development and that the proposed design would complement the area and he moved permission.

 

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

 1. The proposal would be an overdevelopment of the site on land which is not previously developed, out of character with the spatial characteristics of the locality thereby detrimental to its visual amenities and special character, contrary to Policies 3, 4, 8, 37, 44 and Appendix 10.6 of the Bromley Local Plan (2019); Supplementary Planning Guidance No 1 and 2; London Plan Policies 3.4, 3.5 7.4 and 7.6 and the objectives of the NPPF (2019).

2. The application site is a singular plot within the Petts Wood Area of Special Residential Character and the proposal would deteriorate the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 16.8
