Description of application - Roof alterations to include increase in ridge height, first floor rear and single storey front extensions and two storey side extension.


Oral representations in objection to and in support of the application were received at the meeting.  A late representation had been received in objection to the application and circulated to Members.


The application was deferred at Plans Sub-Committee 2 on 22 June 2017 to seek a reduction in the bulk and mass of the extensions.  In Councillor Owen’s view the bulk of the proposed development had not been sufficiently reduced and the ridge height should be lowered and requested that permitted development rights be removed.


Councillor Fawthrop also objected to the application.


Councillor Peter Dean supported the application as there were insufficient grounds to refuse the application.


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

1.  The proposed extensions, inclusive of the raising of the ridge height, would allow for an overtly bulky appearance of the dwelling which would appear out of character within the locality. The proposal would therefore be contrary to Policies BE1 and H8 of the Unitary Development Plan and the Council's Supplementary Guidance 1 and 2 and Policies 3.5, 7.4 and 7.6 of the London Plan.


(Councillor Dean requested that his vote for permission be recorded.)
