Committee

Decision

South East Developments

 

Construction of 4 No. Bungalows and garages on land to rear of Homefield including a new garage to Homefield. Homefield

Church Road

Brightlingsea

 

                 BTC objected to this application:-

·      Back-land Development

·      Traffic Dangers – Most dangerous corner in Brightlingsea. Previous application refused for car parking as egress was dangerous

·      Proximity to SSSI

·      It is inconsistent with Brightlingsea Town Council observations to the emerging plan in its request to retain the Coast Protection Belt in this area

·       

·      We support our Ward member’s wish to call in this application to be determined by the committee and to represent Brightlingsea Town Council at the Committee Meeting

 

 

01        The National Planning Policy Framework (“the Framework”) attaches great importance to the design of the built environment and confirms good design is a key aspect of sustainable development, is indivisible from good planning, and should contribute positively to making places better for people. It is important to plan positively for the achievement of high quality and inclusive design for all development, including individual buildings. Paragraph 64 of the Framework states that permission should be refused for development of poor design that fails to take the opportunities available for improving the character and quality of an area and the way it functions.

 

The adopted Tendring District Local Plan (2007) “Saved” Policies QL9, QL10 and QL11 seek to ensure that all new development makes a positive contribution to the quality of the local environment and character, by ensuring that proposals are well designed, relate satisfactorily to their setting and are of a suitable scale, mass and form. “Draft” Policy SPL3 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond Preferred Options Consultation Document (July 2016) carries forward the sentiments of these saved policies stating that all new development must make a positive contribution to the quality of the local environment and protect or enhance local character.

 

The character of this section of Church Road is largely linear in pattern. The introduction of bungalows in a backland setting would be contrary to the prevailing pattern of development, therefore creating a contrived appearance which would cause a detrimental impact to the character of the area, which will be contrary to the above policies.

 

02        Paragraph 58 of the National Planning Policy Framework (“the Framework”) requires that development should “respond to local character and history, and reflect the identity of local surroundings and materials”. Paragraph 60 adds that it is “proper to seek to promote or reinforce local distinctiveness”. Similarly, “Saved” Tendring District Local Plan (2007) Policy HG13 on “Backland Residential Development” requires that proposals for residential backland development should meet all the criteria listed therein, including criterion (ii) that states “where a proposal includes existing private garden land which would not result in less satisfactory access or off-street parking arrangements, an unacceptable reduction in existing private amenity space or any other unreasonable loss of amenity to existing dwellings”.

 

The introduction of a vehicular access to serve 4 dwellings directly adjacent to the boundaries of Homefield and Field House with little room to establish any landscaping would have a significant detrimental impact upon the resident’s amenity in respect to noise and disturbance caused by traffic movements contrary to the above mentioned Paragraphs and policies.
