Delegated Decision

Mr Jo Chan

 

Brightlingsea Town Council objects to this application. The application does not appear to be materially different. Our objection still stands (1) overdevelopment, (2) proposal not in accordance with the street scene (3) could create a precedence for further applications for Lime Street, which is an un-registered road.

Such materials as may be agreed shall be those used in the development.

 

Reason – In order to protect the character and appearance of the conservation area in the interests of visual amenity.

 

03      No development shall take place until there has been submitted to and approved, in writing, by the Local Planning Authority a scheme of hard and soft landscaping works for the site, which shall include any proposed changes in ground levels and also accurately identify spread, girth and species of all existing trees, shrubs and hedgerows on the site and indicate any to be retained, together with measures for their protection which shall comply with the recommendations set out in the British Standards Institute publication   “BS 5837: 2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction.”

 

Reason – In the interests of visual amenity.

 

04      All changes in ground levels, hard landscaping, planting, seeding or turfing shown on the approved landscaping details shall be carried out during the first planting and seeding season (October – March inclusive) following the commencement of the development or in such other phased arrangement as may be agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Any trees or shrubs which, within a period of 5 years of being planted die, are removed or seriously damaged or seriously diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species, unless the Local Planning Authority agrees in writing to a variation of the previously approved details.

 

Reason – To ensure the approved planting scheme is carried out and to ensure that any trees or shrubs that die in the first 5 years are replaced.

Delegated Decision

Mr Matthew Beer

 

Brightlingsea Town Council supports this application.

First floor rear extension and amendments to existing single storey rear extension. 75 Church Road

Brightlingsea

CO7 0JF

 

01      The National Planning Policy Framework states that planning should always seek to secure high quality design and a good standard of amenity for all existing and future occupants of land and buildings. Saved Policy QL11 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2007 states development will only be permitted where it will not have a materially damaging impact on the privacy, daylight or other amenities of occupiers of nearby properties. Draft Policy SPL3 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond Preferred Options Consultation Document (July 2016) states all new development must make a positive contribution to the quality of the local environment and buildings should be designed and orientated to ensure adequate daylight and outlook for existing residents.

 

The adjacent neighbour to the south, Number 73 Church Road, is attached to the application dwelling and as such has the potential to be heavily impacted upon. The proposal will see an increase in height of approximately 3.3 metres to 5.9 metres, whilst being sited only 0.4 metres from the boundary, contrary to Policy HG14 of the Tendring Local Plan 2007 which requires a minimum 1 metre separation. As such, the impact in terms of daylight lost to the neighbours ground floor rear elevation window is considered to be harmful and contrary to the Essex Design Guide, which states that the obstruction of light and outlook from an existing window is avoided if the extension does not result in the centre of the existing window being within a combined plan and section 45 degree overshadowing zone.

 

Whilst it is acknowledged that prior to the inclusion of a first floor there was a degree of harm from the existing single storey extension, the test shows that the first floor extension will result in a significant increase in the loss of light which will result in the proposal appearing overbearing and oppressive, to the serious detriment of the neighbours existing amenities.

 

The proposed development would therefore be significantly detrimental to neighbouring residents at Number 73 Church Road in respect of loss of outlook, daylight and the overbearing and oppressive nature of the development, contrary to the aforementioned planning policies.
