AGREED that planning permission be refused and that the detailed wording of the reasons would be agreed by the Committee by correspondence, as set out below.

 

Reasons for refusal agreed by email

1.         Affordable Housing

 

Notwithstanding the viability information provided, it is considered that the proposal fails to provide the maximum reasonable amount of affordable housing for a development of this scale, contrary to policies 3.11 and 3.12 of the London Plan (2015),  Policies CP3 and CP39 of the Core Strategy and DMD 1 and DMD 3 of the Development Management Document.

 

2.         Density

 

The proposed development particularly due to high density, together with its architectural approach, bulk, scale, mass and design, would result in the introduction of an overly intensive form of development. This would be detrimental to the character and appearance of the area, to the adjacent listed buildings and the Fore Street Conservation area. The development fails to integrate satisfactorily with its surroundings and would result in the introduction of a visually prominent form of development out of keeping with the surrounding area. It is thus considered that the proposal fails to take the opportunities available for improving the character and quality of the area, contrary to Policies CP5 and CP30 of the Core Strategy, Policies DMD6, DMD8, DMD10, DMD37 and DMD38 of the Development Management Document, London Plan Policies 3.4, 7.4 & 7.6 and the NPPF.

 

3.         Parking

 

The proposed development would result in the generation of additional traffic and parking pressures on the local and strategic road network, adding to existing traffic and parking capacity issues. In this respect the development would be contrary to Policy 6.13 of the London Plan, CP 24 and CP30 of the Core Strategy and Policy DMD 45 and DMD 47 of the Development Management Document.

 

4.         Amenity Space

 

The proposed development due to lack of communal amenity space and children’s on-site play space, taken together with the inclusion of winter gardens rather than balconies, due to  ...  view the full minutes text for item 144.
