PS 16/00321/FUL 9 Albert Road, Bracknell, Berkshire RG42 2AG pdf icon PDF 285 KB

Erection of 6no. flats with associated parking and bin and cycle store, following demolition of existing dwelling.

Minutes:

A site visit had been held on Saturday 8 October 2016 which had been attended by Councillors Dudley, Finnie, Ms Gaw, Hill, Mrs Ingham, Mrs McKenzie-Boyle and Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

 

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

·         The comments of Bracknell Town Council objecting to the proposal.

·         The 19 letters of objections as summarised in the agenda papers.

 

The criteria for public speaking had been met in respect of this application and the committee was addressed by the registered speakers Mr Chris Mayes objector to the application and Mr Patrick Bancroft from Bancroft Developments Ltd representing the applicant.

 

RESOLVED that the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:-

 

01.       By reason of its bulk, scale and mass, the proposed block of flats would result in an unsympathetic and overly prominent new building within the street scene, to the detriment of the character and appearance of the area. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan and Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and National Planning Policy Framework.

 

02.       The proposal would not comply with the Local Planning Authority’s standards in respect of vehicle parking and turning. This would be likely to encourage on-street parking and therefore have a detrimental impact upon road safety and the flow of the traffic. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policy M9 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policy CS23 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and Bracknell Forest Borough Parking Standards (2016).

 

03.       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, the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Avoidance and Mitigation Supplementary Planning Document (2012) and the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document (February 2015).
