Proposal:       Erection of 1 No. 3 bed dwelling with associated access and parking.


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


The Committee also considered the minutes of the Site Viewing Working Party held on 5 September 2019, which were circulated as supplementary planning information prior to the meeting.


The Committee was advised of the following amendment to condition 10:


Replace the words “southern elevation facing” with “south facing elevation”


The Committee was addressed by the following deputees:


(A)       Mr Russell, who objected to the application for the following reasons:


              1            The proposed development was overbearing and out of keeping with the character of the street scene;


              2            The proposal did not overcome the reasons for refusal for a previous application for development of this site and 11 Queen Anne’s Drive (APP/17/00451);


              3            The proposal was an overdevelopment of the site and would not provide an adequate outdoor private garden space. Therefore the development did not provide satisfactory living conditions for the occupants and would have an adverse effect on the amenities of occupiers of adjoining properties;


              4            The proposed development would infill a gap to the detriment of the visual amenities and spatial characteristics of the street scene and outlook to the occupiers of 6 Norman Way;


              5            The proximity of the proposed dwelling to 6 Norman Way would give rise to overlooking which would be detrimental to the amenities of the occupiers of this property;


              6            Having regard to the size of the private outdoor garden space, the size of the proposed dwelling and its relationship to existing properties, the proposed development would be detrimental to the quiet enjoyment of adjoining properties;  


(B)         Mr Hutchings, who supported the objections raised by Mr Russell, and commented on the history of the site and 11 Queen Annes Drive:


              In response to questions from members of the Committee, Mr Hutchings advised that:


        The officers had not given sufficient weight to the history of the site and 11 Queen Anne’s Drive


        The application site should be restored as the garden to 11 Queen Anne’s Drive


(C)         Ms Glover, who supported the application for the following reasons:


              1            the application site was in a sustainable location;


              2            the application was designed to ensure that it did not have a harmful impact on the character of the area;


              3            the current application sought permission for a three- bedroom dwelling of a reduced size, width and eaves height compared to the dwellings proposed under APP/17/00451;


              4            the amenity space would be ample for a three-bedroom dwelling and would fill an uncharacteristic gap;


              5            the design of the application reflected the character of the street scene;


              6            the separation distance between the proposed dwelling and adjoining properties were acceptable. Therefore, there was no overlooking;


              7.           the internal layout of the proposed dwelling was designed to prevent overlooking of 6 Norman Way;


              8.           there were no objections  ...  view the full minutes text for item 21.
