A developer’s proposal to demolish the existing bungalow at 126 Green Street and replace it with a 2.5 storey building providing 7 appartments was refused by the our local planning authority.
The reason: “The proposed development by virtue of its design, siting and scale on this prominent corner location, would represent an overdevelopment of the site with a lack of car parking, amenity space and cramped layout. It would be positioned forward of the prevailing building line of adjacent sites and would appear visually obtrusive and out of keeping with the locality. It would not make a positive contribution to the street scene of Manor Lane and Green Street and would not preserve the setting of the listed building at 124 Green Street, to the detriment of the character of the area. The development will therefore be contrary to Policies EN1 and EN5 of the Core Strategy and Policies DPD 2009 and the Supplementary Planning Document on the Design of Residential Extensions and New Residential Development 2011.”
The developer has now lodged an appeal against the LPA’s refusal to the Planning Inspectorate (Ref: APP/Z3635/W/17/3191046).
LOSRA objected to the original application and will now be making further representations to the Planning Inspectorate. If you wish to comment, you are urged to submit your representation online at: https://acp.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/ViewCase.aspx?caseid=3191046
Closing date 4th April 2018.
