    Councillor Richman proposed to approve the application against officer’s recommendations, which was seconded by Councillor Fluss for the following reasons:

     

    Whereas the Committee recognised, that the size of the extension was not consistent with the normal requirements of the guidelines of the SPD, it considered that there were exceptional reasons to allow the application, against the advice of the officers namely:

     

    ·       The extension was similar in terms of protrusion to the existing extensions to the neighbouring properties on either side, was visually consistent therewith, and had no negative effect on the amenities of the neighbours

    ·       The in situ development was not unsympathetic to the existing dwelling house and had no negative impact on the character of the overall property

    ·       The extension is in the rear and visible only from the back garden and is  not detrimental in any way to the street scene and wider locality under DMO1

    ·        The Committee voted on the motion to approve the application, for the reasons outlined above.

    Votes were recorded as follows:

     

    For
