29 Copse Wood Way, Northwood - 12537/APP/2016/2920 pdf icon PDF 80 KB

Two storey, 6-bed, detached dwelling with habitable roofspace with associated parking and amenity space and installation of vehicular crossover to front, involving demolition of existing detached dwelling house.

 

Recommendation: Refusal

 

Decision:

RESOLVED: That the application be refused.

 

Minutes:

Two storey, 6-bed, detached dwelling with habitable roof space with associated parking and amenity space and installation of vehicular crossover to front, involving demolition of existing detached dwelling house.

 

Officers provided an overview of the application and made a recommendation for refusal. The addendum was also highlighted.

 

A petitioner spoke in objection of the application and submitted that the proposed development was incongruous due to its size, bulk and scale. In summary, the petitioner also submitted the proposed development was far too large for the size of the plot and there were concerns about the impact on the area’s special local character. The rear of the proposed building would extend 8 – 11 metres beyond its current position and its height was much greater than the adjacent houses. There would also be over dominance of nearby houses and a loss of light.  The common boundary between adjacent neighbours had been reduced. Overall, the petitioner opposed the development due to its bulk, size and over dominance.

 

The officer's recommendation was moved, seconded and, when put to a vote, unanimously agreed.

 

RESOLVED: That the application be refused as per officer’s recommendation
