A site visit had been held on Saturday, 16 June 2018, which had been attended by Councillors Dudley, Mrs Hayes, Mrs Mattick and Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

 

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

  • Six letters of objection received from local residents, as summarised in the Agenda papers.

 

A motion to approve the recommendation in the officer report was put to the vote and was LOST.

 

An alternative motion to refuse the application was proposed and seconded, and on being put to the vote was CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED that application 18/00139/FUL be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

The proposal would result in a cramped overdevelopment of the site that would be out of keeping with the surrounding pattern of development to the detriment of the character and visual amenities of the area.  The proposed 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, the Design Supplementary Planning Document and the National Planning Policy Framework.

A site visit had been held on Saturday, 16 June 2018, which had been attended by Councillors Dudley, Mrs Hayes, Mrs Mattick and Thompson.

 

The Committee noted:

 

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