    It was moved by Councillor Sowerby and seconded by Councillor Weeden-Sanz, that the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

     

    1.    The proposed development by reason of its mass and bulk, additional storey and the number of units proposed would increase the site density significantly over the London plan density matrix representing an overdevelopment of the site. The proposal would result in a visually obtrusive building particularly as viewed from York Road. The application is therefore unacceptable and contrary to Policies 3.4, 7.4 of the London Plan (2016) DM01 (Protecting Barnet's character and amenity), DM05 (Tall Buildings) of the Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (September 2012), policy CS5 (Protecting and enhancing Barnet's character to create high quality spaces) of the Local Plan Core Strategy  (September 2012),

     

     

    2.    The application does not include a formal undertaking to secure an adequate contribution to affordable housing provision to meet the demand for such housing in the borough. The application is therefore unacceptable and contrary to Policies 3.12 and 3.13 of the London Plan (2016), Policies CS NPPF, CS4, CS15 of the Barnet Local Plan Core Strategy, Policies DM01, DM02, DM10 of the Development Management Policies Document (both adopted September 2012), the Barnet Planning Obligations (adopted April 2013) and Affordable Housing (adopted February 2007 and including subsequent amendments) Supplementary Planning Documents, and the Mayoral Affordable Housing and Viability SPG (adopted August 2017).

     

     

     

    A vote was taken a follows:

     

    For (refusal)

    4

    Against (refusal)

    2

    Abstained
