    The proposed extensions, by virtue of their cumulative size, siting, massing, bulk and excessive rearward projection, would result in a disproportionate, discordant, and incongruous overdevelopment which would subsume the character of the original dwellinghouse and unduly detract from the character and appearance of the host property and surrounding area, contrary to Policy DM01 of the LB Barnet: Local Plan (Development Management Policies) DPD (2012), Policies CS1 and CS5 of the LB Barnet: Local Plan (Core Strategy) DPD (2012), Policies 7.4 and 7.6 of the London Plan (2016) and the advice contained within the LB Barnet: Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016)

     

    The proposed conversion into six self-contained flats, by virtue of the resultant increase in comings and goings, general activity and the proliferation of domestic paraphernalia – including multiple refuse stores situated to the front of the building – would amount to a discordant, incongruous and over-intensive use of the site that would unduly impact on the character and appearance of the host property and surrounding area, contrary to Policy DM01 of the LB Barnet: Local Plan (Development Management Policies) DPD (2012), Policies CS1 and CS5 of the LB Barnet: Local Plan (Core Strategy) DPD (2012), Policies 7.4 and 7.6 of the London Plan (2016) and the advice contained within the LB Barnet: Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016)
