    It was proposed by Councillor Sowerby and seconded by Councillor Prentice that the application be refused for the following reasons (with detailed reasons for refusal delegated to Officers):

     

     

    The proposed development by reason of its size, siting, bulk, design, massing and loss of front garden to an extensive hardstanding area would result in an inappropriate development of the site. The proposal would be unduly obtrusive, out of scale, overly dominant and appear as a prominent and intrusive feature within the street scene, with its prominence exacerbated by its excessive footprint and projection to front and rear of the established building lines. The proposal would be significantly larger than the existing building which would be detrimental to the character and appearance of the site, the immediate locality and the street scene and would not relate sympathetically to the adjacent properties contrary to policies 7.4 of the London Plan (2016); policy CSNPPF, CS1 and CS5 of the adopted Local Plan Core Strategy (2012) and policy DM01 of the adopted Development Management Policies  (2012) and the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016),

     

    The proposal would result in the loss of a single-family dwelling house in a road characterised by houses contrary to policies CS4 and CS5 of the Adopted Local Plan Core Strategy 2012, policies DM01 and DM08 of the Adopted Development Management Policies DPD 2012; adopted Supplementary Planning Documents on

    Sustainable Design and Construction and Residential Design Guidance (2016), and

      the Direction of the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government   

      (March 13th 2020) (under section 337 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999) to the 

      Mayor of London to modify Draft London Plan policy H10.9 that in determining the

      appropriate mix of unit sizes regard should be made to the need for additional family  housing and the role of one and two bed units in freeing up existing family housing.
