Conversion of existing garage into habitable accommodation, erection of a first floor extension, external alterations to enable sub-division of existing four bedroom dwelling to create 1no. three bedroom and 1no. two bedroom dwellings.

Minutes:

Conversion of existing garage into habitable accommodation, erection of a first floor extension, external alterations to enable sub-division of existing four bedroom dwelling to create 1no. three bedroom and 1no. two bedroom dwellings.

 

The Committee noted:

·         The supplementary report of the Head of Planning tabled at the meeting.

·         The comments of Bracknell Town Council

·         Three objections from residents of surrounding properties, which are summarised in the agenda papers.

 

A motion to authorise the Head of Planning to approve the application subject to conditions (and following the completion of a planning obligation) as recommended in the Officer report was put to the vote and was lost. An alternative motion to REFUSE planning permission was put to the vote and was carried.

 

It was RESOLVED that the application be refused for the following reasons:-

 

01.  By reason of its siting, size and bulk, the proposed development would result in a cramped form of development, which would appear incongruous in the street scene to the detriment of the visual amenity of the surrounding area. The development would therefore be contrary to Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document. ‘Saved’ Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

02.  The occupants of the development would put extra pressure on the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area and the proposal would not satisfactorily mitigate its impacts in this respect. In the absence of a planning obligation to secure suitable avoidance and mitigation measures and access management monitoring arrangements, in terms that are satisfactory to the Local Planning Authority, the proposal would be contrary to Policy NRM6 of the South East Plan, Policy EN3 of the Bracknell Forest Local Plan, Policy CS14 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance and Mitigation Supplementary Planning Document (2012).

Minutes:

Change of Use from Agricultural Building to Curling Rink (D2), formation of ancillary grassed parking area, erection of extension to barn, demolition of former piggery, new vehicular access, and landscaping.

 

A site visit had been held on Saturday 20 February 2016 which had been attended by Councillors Brossard, Finnie, Hill, Mrs Mattick, Mrs McKenzie, Mrs McKenzie-Boyle, Peacey, Phillips and Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

·         The supplementary report of the Head of Planning tabled at the meeting.

·         22 letters of support and 36 letters of objection as summarised in the agenda papers.

 

It was RESOLVED that the deemed reasons for refusal as outlined in the report in the agenda papers be agreed in addition to reason 3, as agreed by the Committee;

 

01.  The proposed development would result in an unsympathetic development that would detract from the special character of the settings of the two Listed Buildings and the contribution they make to the heritage of the area.  The proposal would therefore be contrary to Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, and Policies CS1 and CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and guidance in the NPPF.

 

02.  Insufficient information has been provided to demonstrate that the proposed development would be SuDS compliant and there is therefore a risk of surface water flooding on and off the site. As such, the proposed development would be contrary Policy CS1 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, and the NPPF.

 

03.   The use of the proposed access point which is in close proximity to the access for the Meadowbrook Montessori School would adversely affect road safety and the flow of traffic. The proposal would therefore be contrary to Policy C23 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document.

 

04.   The proposed curling rink use, plant equipment and car parking area by reason of its siting and proximity to the boundary with neighbouring properties would result in an unacceptable level of noise and disturbance to the detriment of the living conditions of neighbouring properties. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to ‘Saved’ Policies EN20 and EN25 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan.

·         The comments of Winkfield Parish Council

·         Two objections from neighbouring properties objecting on the grounds summarised in the agenda papers.

 

An alternative motion to refuse the application was carried and it was RESOLVED that the application be refused for the following reason:

 

01.  By reason of its size and position, the proposed screen and decking is considered to be unneighbourly, resulting in an overbearing impact to the detriment of the residential amenity of the occupiers of 47 Wentworth Avenue. The proposed screen is therefore contrary to ‘Saved’ Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan.
