Minutes:

Erection of single storey side and front extension plus alterations to

detached garage flat roof.

 

The Committee noted:

 

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

·        That Sandhurst Town Council raised no objection.

·        Letters of objection received from a total of 9 households as summarised in the Agenda papers and a further 2 letters of objection as detailed in the supplementary report.

·         Letters of support received from a total of 9 households as detailed in the agenda and supplementary report.

 

 

A motion to approve the recommendation in the officer report was proposed but fell at the vote.

 

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

 

RESOLVED that planning application 20/00279/FUL be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

01        The extension by reason of its design, bulk and massing and proximity to the boundary with neighbouring property, would result in an unneighbourly form of development that is unduly overbearing and detrimental to the amenity of neighbouring occupiers. The development is therefore contrary to 'Saved' policy EN20 of the BFBLP.
