Proposal:       Change of use from a former bank (Class A2) to a hot food takeaway (Class A5); installation of extraction / ventilation equipment and other external alterations (resubmission of application ref: APP/18/00706).

 

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation of the Head of Planning to grant permission.

 

The Committee was addressed by the following deputees:

 

a)    Ms Glanville-Hearson, who objected to the application for the following reasons:

 

1.            There was not suitable space or access in the rear service yard for the safe entry and exit of sizeable service vehicles;

2.            Service vehicle access via Brockhampton Lane would not be possible due to the limited width of the road;

3.            Access to the rear service yard via Park Road South would result in an unacceptable hazard, as vehicles would need to cross two lanes of northbound traffic and a busy pathway to enter the yard;

4.            The lay-by parking on West Street was in constant use and was not able to accommodate the additional parking created by this application; and

5.            The application was largely the same as the previously submitted application and had not responded to concerns from residents.

 

b)    Mr Comlay, who objected to the application for the following reasons:

 

1.            The applicant would not have control over the usage of the rear service yard and could therefore not guarantee smooth access to the site or the parking spaces to accord with the detail of the application submitted;

2.            The application would lead to an unacceptable amount of traffic movements on the site and create a hazard for pedestrians and motorists in the area; and

3.            The application would detrimentally impact upon the health and wellbeing of the Borough.

 

c)    Mr Sykes, who supported the application for the following reasons:

 

1.            The resubmission had sought to address the concerns raised in the previous application, with the provision of a Technical Highways Note and parking surveys;

2.            The unit could convert to an A1 retail unit without planning permission and this would lead to a higher number of predicted traffic movements compared to an A5 take-away unit;

3.            A 7.5 tonne vehicle would be used to service this site and the tracking plan showed that this vehicle would be able to access this site;

4.            The predicted number of trip generations relating to the application site was considered acceptable;

5.            The applicant would be relocating from an existing unit in North Street and would therefore not result in a net increase of takeaway units in Havant Town Centre; and

6.            The application would have a positive impact upon local employment.

 

In response to questions from the Committee, Mr Sykes confirmed that:

 

·         The site was solely for takeaway usage;

·         The application included the provision for 3 parking spaces at the rear of the site; and

·         The tracking plan had been undertaken by professional consultants.

 

In response to questions from the Committee, officers advised that:

 

·         The service vehicle tracking plans were consistent and commonly used for  ...  view the full minutes text for item 82.

(The site was viewed by the Site Viewing Working Party).

 

Proposal:       First floor extension over existing garage and utility room; cladding to elevations.

 

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation of the Head of Planning to grant permission.

 

The Committee received supplementary information, circulated prior to the meeting, which provided photographs of the site as submitted by Councillor Michael Wilson.

 

The Committee was addressed by the following deputee:

 

a)    Councillor Michael Wilson, who objected to the application for the following reasons:

 

1.    The proposed extension would have an unacceptable adverse impact affecting the light available to the rear of the neighbouring property;

2.    The proposed extension would result in an excessive building bulk and size adjacent to the neighbouring property;

3.    The proposed extension by reason of its bulk, size and prominence would be an incongruous feature in comparison to the cohesive design of existing properties and would be detrimental to the street scene within Lexden Gardens; and

4.    The use of cladding would be unsympathetic to the character of the existing design for properties within Lexden Gardens.

 

Councillor Wilson recommended that the Committee refuse the application for the following reasons:

 

‘The proposed extension is of excessive depth adversely affecting the outlook from, and light available to, the occupier of the adjacent residential property. The proposal is therefore contrary to policy CS16 of the Havant Borough Local Plan (Core Strategy) 2011 and the National Planning Policy Framework’

 

‘The proposed extension would result in an excessive building bulk adjacent to an existing residential property, detrimental to the visual outlook and amenities of the occupier of this property. The proposal is therefore contrary to policy CS16 of the Havant Borough Local Plan (Core Strategy) 2011 and the National Planning Policy Framework’

 

‘The proposed extension by reason of its bulk, height and prominent location would be an incongruous feature within the streetscene to the detriment of the visual amenities of the area. The proposal is therefore contrary to policy CS16 of the Havant Borough Local Plan (Core Strategy) 2011 and the National Planning Policy Framework’

 

The Committee discussed the application in detail together with the views raised by the deputee.

 

During the debate, members considered the impact upon the neighbouring property and felt that there would be minimal loss of light.

 

The Committee were of the view however that the extension would by reason of its bulk, proposed materials and prominent siting be an incongruous feature within the street scene and have a detrimental impact upon the spatial characteristics of the area. It was therefore

 

RESOLVED that Application APP/18/00985 be refused for the following reason:

 

1.         The proposed extension would, by reason of its bulk, proposed materials and prominent siting, appear incongruous and be harmful to the existing character and appearance of the area conflicting with the established pattern of development and spatial characteristics and setting of the street scene. The proposal therefore conflicts with Policy CS16 of the Havant Borough Local Plan (Core Strategy) 2011, the Havant Borough Design  ...  view the full minutes text for item 83.
