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

 

RESOLVED that application 19/00756/FUL be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

1.  The proposed development, by means of its siting, bulk and massing, would have an adverse impact on the character of the Queensway Public Right of Way, which is an important feature in the locality.  The proposal would therefore be contrary to Saved Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan and Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2.    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 Borough Local Plan, Policy CS14 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document and the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area Supplementary Planning Document (2018).
