Good and Bad News for Green Street

Rate this item
(19 votes)

Thanks to all those who submitted objections to the proposed development at 126 Green Street (see article of 16/10/17). The concerns of residents have resulted in the application being refused and are reflected in the grounds for the planning officer’s refusal:

“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 neighbouring listed building at no. 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”

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the re-development scheme proposed for Inglewood Hall which has just been approved (see article of 23/10/17).

Local residents will doubtless be dismayed by this decision, not least because the County Highways Authority did not support their concerns regarding the lack of parking spaces as specified by planning law.

Whilst too late for this application, the Association has nevertheless submitted a number of questions for written reply at the next Joint Area Committee (SCC & Spelthorne) on 6th December.
