Vote

For: 5               Against: 2                    Abstained: 2

Resolved:

That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:

The proposal would introduce a second tier of housing behind the Chesham Road frontage. This backland scheme would detract from the established character of the area, being detrimental to the residential amenity of residents of the existing nearby housing by reason of overlooking and overbearing visual impact and establishing a cramped overdevelopment with the site dominated by car parking, contrary to Policies CS11 (Quality of Neighbourhood Design) and CS12 (Quality of Design) of the Dacorum Core Strategy. The proposed dwellings to replace no. 50 Chesham Road would not be served with any turning facilities to safely enable vehicles to enter and exit in forward gear, contrary to Policy CS12 of Dacorum Core Strategy.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

R Marber introduced the item to the members and said it had been referred to committee due to the contrary views of Tring Town Council.

Christie Strong and Belinda Goss spoke in objection to the application.

Christopher Higgenbottam spoke in support of the application.

Having there been no proposer to grant this application in line with the officer’s recommendation, it was proposed by Councillor Birnie and seconded by Councillor P Hearn to overturn the officer’s recommendation and refuse the application.

Vote

For: 8               Against: 0                    Abstained: 1

Resolved:

That planning permission be REFUSED due to the following reasons:

  1. The two proposed units by virtue of combined width and depth in relation to insufficient external amenity space and proximity to the boundaries of the site would result in an unacceptable amount of bulk and mass across the site and a significant erosion of the spacious character of the area. As a result, the proposed dwellings would appear cramped within their plots and would fail to maintain or enhance the quality and character of the surrounding area. As such, the proposal would be contrary to Policies CS11 and CS12 of the Core Strategy (2013), NPPF and Tring Character Area  Appraisal (TCA13) (2004).

 

  1.  By virtue of the close proximity of the proposed units to neighbouring residents at No.1 Sinfield Place it is considered that the proposal would result in a loss of outlook and privacy to these neighbouring residents. Moreover, due to change in land levels, and close proximity of neighbouring residents on Grove Road and Sinfield Place it is considered that the proposed new units would be significantly overlooked. The application would therefore fail to secure good standards of amenity for existing and future occupiers of land and buildings contrary to the provisions of Saved Appendix 3 of the Local Plan (2004), Policy and CS12 of the Core Strategy (2013) and the NPPF (2012).

4/02928/17/FHA - PROPOSED TWO-STOREY AND SINGLE STOREY SIDE EXTENSION, FIRST FLOOR REAR EXTENSION, ONE REAR AND TWO SIDE ROOF WINDOWS - 8 LITTLE GADDESDEN, BERKHAMSTED, HP4 1PA pdf icon PDF 124 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

R Marber introduced the item to members and said the application was recommended for refusal. It had been referred to committee due to the contrary views of Little Gaddesden Parish Council.

Christopher Higgenbottam and Lynne Lane spoke in support of the application.

In not accepting the officer recommendation Members carefully evaluated the planning merits of the case and concluded that the proposal was acceptable.  Members considered that the proposed works would not make a significant impact on the appearance of the site and surrounding area noting that the proposed materials would match the existing building.  It was further considered that any harm would not be great, less than substantial, and it was noted that there were few medium sized properties in the village.  It was considered that the extension of the property to create a larger unit would give public benefit to current and future occupiers of the property and wider village community through increasing the diversity of accommodation the village that would help to retain families in the village.

Members felt the public benefits of the proposal outweighed any harm to the significance of the heritage asset.

Having there been no proposer to refuse the application, it was proposed by Councillor Birnie and seconded by Councillor Matthews to overturn the officer’s recommendation and grant the application.

Vote

For: 5               Against: 2                    Abstained: 2

Resolved:

That planning permission be REFUSED due to the following reasons:

  1. The proposed  development would be overbearing and cause significant harm to the residential amenity of adjoining properties in terms of loss of light due to its size, contrary to Policy CS12 c) of the Core Strategy (2013). The proposal would result in disproportionate additions over and above the size of the original dwelling, contrary to paragraph 89 of the NPPF and Policy CS5 c) of the Core Strategy (2013).

 

  1. The proposed front, side and rear extension; loft conversion with crown roof and front gable extension are not considered limited and will significantly increase the bulk, massing, prominence of the property thereby failing to comply with Policies CS5 and CS12 of the Core Strategy (2013) and the National Planning Policy Framework (2012).
