    1.     The proposed development by reason of its unsympathetic design, excessive depth, width and bulk and the closing of the gaps between the two neighbouring dwellings would result in an obtrusive and incongruous development of the site which would be out of keeping detrimental to the character and appearance of the area and the street scene, contrary to with Policy D3 of the London Plan (2021), Policies CS NPPF, CS1, CS5 of the Local Plan Core Strategy (Adopted September 2012), and policies DM01 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies DPD (Adopted September 2012) and the Residential Design Guide (2016).

     

    2.     The proposed development by reason of its excessive rearward projection and close proximity to the rear gardens of no.77 and 81Chandos Avenue, would give rise to an unacceptable degree of overlooking, loss of privacy and would appear overbearing, and would result in overshadowing and loss of day light for no. 81. Chandos Avenue to the detriment of the occupants of neighbouring properties. This is contrary to policy CS5 of the Local Plan Core Strategy (Adopted September 2012), policy DM01 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies DPD (2012) and the Residential Design Guide SPD (Adopted October 2016)

     

    The Chairman moved to the vote on the new recommendations to refuse the application.

     

    The votes were recorded as follows:

     

    For – 3

    Against – 2

    Abstained – 0

     

    RESOLVED that the application be REFUSED for the reasons above.

     

    AND the Committee grants delegated authority to the Service Director – Planning and Building Control to make any minor alterations, additions or deletions to the reasons for refusal as set out in this report and addendum provided this authority shall be exercised after consultation with the Chairman (or in their absence the Vice- Chairman) of the Committee (who may request that such alterations, additions or deletions be first approved by the Committee)
