    The Chairman, seconded by Councillor Freedman, moved the motion to refuse the application for the following reasons:

     

    1.    The proposed development would fail to provide an appropriate mix of units, which would fail to contribute towards the identified shortfall of family units within the Borough or create inclusive and sustainable communities contrary to policy CS10 of Barnet Council's Core Strategy (adopted) 2012; policy DM08 of Barnet Council's Development Management Policies (adopted) 2012; and policy H.10 of the London Plan (2021).

     

     

    2.    The proposed development by reason of its height, bulk and scale would have a discordant appearance and would not relate sympathetically to the host building and would detrimentally harm the character and appearance of the site, the street scene and the wider surrounding area. As such the proposal is contrary to policies CS1, CS5 and CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012) and policy DM01 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies DPD (2012).
