17/00039/FUL Windrush Forest Road, Binfield, Bracknell, Berkshire RG42 4HD pdf icon PDF 392 KB

Erection of a two storey side and rear extension and a single storey rear extension following demolition of existing single storey rear projection.

Minutes:

The Committee noted:

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

·         Binfield Parish Council raised no objection to the proposal.

·         The representation from the applicant as summarised in the supplementary papers.

 

RESOLVED that the application is recommended to be REFUSED for the following reasons:-

 

01.  By reason of its design, bulk, scale and mass, the proposed extension would result in an unsympathetic and disproportionate addition to the detriment of the character and appearance of the dwelling and visual amenities of the surrounding area. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to ‘Saved’ policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and the Design SPD.

 

02. It has not been demonstrated that the proposed development would not adversely affect existing trees [T5 and T6 of TPO 1022] which contribute significantly to the character and visual amenity of the area. It has not been demonstrated that the proposed parking layout can be achieved without a detrimental impact to the protected Oak tree to the front of the property. As such, the development would be contrary to ‘Saved’ Policies EN1 and EN20 of Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan.
