R(AO)

Applicant:

Proposal:

Demolition of existing dwelling and erection of 4 detached dwellings, garages and landscaping at Copsewood, 69 Denham Green Lane , Denham, Bucks. UB9 5LG .Application includes details required in relation to conditions 10, 12 and 15 of Outline application: 15/00510/OUT

Notes:

1.    A site visit was undertaken by members.

2.    Copies of the following documents had been circulated to members of the Committee:

·         Email from the County Ecology Advisor following his visit to the site to inspect badger holes

·         A copy of the Woodland Management Plan referred to in paragraph 6.6 of the report

·         A copy of a letter dated 30 March from the County Ecology Advisor setting out his comments on the application

 

3.    Members expressed concern over the scale of the dwellinghouses and in particular the detrimental effect their roofs would have on the character of the locality. They also questioned the need for the roofs spaces to have roof-lights if they were not intended to be used as habitable accommodation in the future.

 

The Committee accordingly

 

RESOLVED that the application be refused on the grounds that the scale of the proposed dwellinghouses and in particular the bulk, height and massing of their roofs would result in them appearing overdominant and obtrusive to the detriment of the character of the locality. Moreover, the resultant volume of the roof-spaces and the proposed insertion of roof-lights enable the future conversion of the roof-spaces into additional habitable accommodation, thereby further exacerbating the under-provision of off-street car parking. The proposals would therefore be incompatible with the character of the surrounding area and would lead to additional on-street parking, contrary to policies H9, EP3 and TR7 of the South Bucks District Local Plan (adopted March 1999).
