Additional documents:

Minutes:

S Robbins introduced the item to members and said it had been referred to committee due to the contrary views of Berkhamsted Town Council.

Town Councillor Anthony Armytage spoke in objection to the application.

Due to a lack of proposer and seconder to grant the application, it was proposed by Councillor Matthews and seconded by Councillor Bateman to refuse this application.

Vote

For: 6               Against: 0                    Abstained: 4

Resolved:

That planning permission be REFUSED due to the following reasons:

The proposal would not respect the typical individual plot density in the area resulting in overdevelopment of the site and would not preserve the attractive streetscape. The development would not integrate with the streetscape character or respect adjoining properties in terms of layout, scale and bulk. The dormer windows would appear prominent within the street scene and would have a detrimental impact upon the character and appearance of the house and surrounding area. This proposal is therefore contrary to Core Strategy (2013) Policies CS11 parts a) and b), CS12 parts f) and g) and Saved Appendix 7 of the Local Plan (2004).
