Minutes:

TPO 89 - Application to fell 4 trees

 

The Committee noted:

· The supplementary report tabled at the meeting.

· The 56 representations received as summarised in the agenda.

· The additional representation as detailed in the supplementary report.

 

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

 

The removal of the four Oak trees that form G3 would be detrimental to the landscape character of the area; it would cause significant harm to the public visual amenity and townscape character and would result in the loss of wildlife and bio-diversity assets. The alternative engineering solution of a root-barrier would provide a solution to the problem of subsidence to 18 Lyon Oaks without the need to remove the four protected Oak trees.

Section 73 application for the variation of condition 1 of planning permission

18/01238/REM for submission of reserved matters relating to appearance, scale and landscaping pursuant to outline planning permission 17/00318/OUT for the erection of detached dwellings and garages following demolition of existing outbuilding. (Plot 2). (For Clarification: this application seeks to change the location of the 2 dormer windows on the garage to alternate side elevation).

 

The Committee noted:

 

· The objection from Winkfield Parish Council as detailed within the report.

· The objections received by 10 addresses as summarised in the agenda.

· The representations from the public speaker who joined the meeting.

 

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 application 21/00012/FUL be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

1.  The development by reason of its position and orientation in relation to the neighbouring properties has an unduly overbearing impact and results in unacceptable levels of overlooking to private homes and gardens. The proposed development is therefore contrary to Saved Policy EN20 of the Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan, Policy CS7 of the Core Strategy Development Plan Document, BFBC Design Supplementary Planning Document, and the National Planning Policy Framework.
