Decision:

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of existing dwelling and erection of a three storey building comprising 2 one bedroom and 11 two bedroom flats with associated parking, amenity space, refuse/cycle store and landscaping OUTLINE APPLICATION.

 

Oral representations in support of the application were received at the meeting.  Oral representations from Ward Member Councillor Colin Smith in objection to the application were also received at the meeting.

 

The Planning Officer reported the following update:-

 

·  the development included a total of 15 car parking spaces (13 for occupiers and 2 for visitors).

 

·  Environment Agency comments had been received which confirmed that as the proposed changes were internal and would keep the same buffer offset to the Kyd Brook, a condition to retain this would be acceptable.

 

·  The Resubmission paragraph on page 15 of the report had been amended.

 

·  The planning merits of the external alterations, the dormers and rooflights would reflect the design of those on the previously permitted building and would complement the design and appearance of the building.

 

Having regard to the above matters, the recommendation remained as set out in the main agenda, subject to the updates, amendments and deletions of various conditions.

 

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

 

1  The proposed development results in an increase in the number of units which would reduce the quality of the accommodation and intensify the activities associated with the development and would result in a cramped, overdevelopment of the site that would impact detrimentally on the special character, appearance and spatial standards of the Bickley Area of Special Residential Character, contrary to Policies 4, 37 and 44 of the Local Plan, Policy 3.5 of the London Plan and paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

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

 

1  The proposal would involve the unsatisfactory severance of garden land to create a separate plot and would result in an undesirable sub-division of the site, detrimental to the character and appearance of the street scene, resulting in a retrograde lowering of the spatial standards of the area, contrary to Policies 4 and 37 of the Local Plan.

 

2  The proposed development would be harmful to the layout and open plan appearance of the area and the existing visual amenities, contrary to Policies 4 and 37 of the Local Plan.

1  The proposed dwelling, by reason of its design, excessive massing, siting and proximity or the flank boundaries of the site, would constitute a cramped overdevelopment that would be detrimental to the established spatial standards of the area and harmful to the character of the site and the wider area, thereby contrary to Policies 4, 8 and 37 of the Bromley Local Plan.

 

2  The proposal would result in an unacceptable arboricultural impact as a result of the partial loss of a valuable group of trees in the street scene as well as the overall loss of tree cover on a site adjacent to a conservation area, without provision or mitigation, thereby contrary to Policy 73 of the Bromley Local Plan.
