Minutes of last meeting pdf icon PDF 77 KB

    Minutes:

    Councillor Marshall reported that the minute for item 9 (paragraph 1) did not clearly emphasise the proposed development’s potential impact and stated that the word ‘very’ should be added: ‘would be very harmful to the setting of the adjoining Hampstead Garden Suburb Conservation area..’.

     

    HBPL advised that the minutes should record what was agreed at the last meeting. The Chairman then took a vote on whether the words “would be very harmful to the setting of the adjoining Hampstead Garden Suburb Conservation area” had been given as a reason for the refusal at the last committee meeting. This was agreed and the minutes were approved as an accurate record.

    Dominique Victor, Inge Erhard and Cllr Anne Hutton spoke in objection to the application.

     

    Mr Chris Bone, architect, spoke on behalf of the applicant.

     

    Cllr Schneiderman moved a motion to refuse the application for the reasons below and this was seconded by Cllr Farrier:

     

    1. The proposed development by reason of the size, siting and design of the roof extensions would be detrimental to the appearance of the existing buildings and would be out of character within the streetscene and detrimental to the visual amenities of the locality. As such the proposed development would be contrary to policies CS1, CS5 and CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012) policies DM01 and DM02 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012) and the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016).
    2. The proposed development by reason of the siting of the new internal staircases and poor stacking arising from the layout of the new flats would lead to a reduction in natural light being received to the communal hallway of the existing flats and an increase in noise and disturbance giving rise to an unacceptable loss of existing residential amenities.  As such, the proposed development would be contrary to policies CS1, CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012, policies DM01 and DM02 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012), the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016) and Sustainable Design and Construction SPD (2016).
    3. The proposed development by reason of the siting of the proposed dormer windows and proximity to the site boundaries, would lead to overlooking of neighbouring properties. The loss of privacy would be detrimental to the residential amenities of the occupiers of the neighbouring properties, contrary to policies CS1, CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012, policies DM01 and DM02 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012), the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016) and Sustainable Design and Construction SPD (2016).
    4. No parking is proposed to serve the development. The proposals would therefore result in increased pressure for on-street parking, in an area of parking stress, that will be detrimental to the free flow of traffic and highway and pedestrian safety. As such the proposed development would be contrary to and policy CS9 of the Adopted Barnet Core Strategy 2012 and policy DM17 of the Adopted Barnet Development Management Policies 2012.

     

     

    The vote was recorded as follows:

     

    For (refusal) – 4

    Against (refusal) – 2

     

    Carried – the application was REFUSED.
