7.    The majority of the Committee did not support the officers’ recommendation: 2 votes for and 8 votes against.

8.    The proposal that planning permission be refused for reasons that the design would be detrimental to the character of the area in respect of scale, bulk and massing was supported by the majority of the Committee: 8 votes for.

 

AGREED that planning permission be refused for the reason below.

 

The proposed development by reason of its design, scale, bulk and the location of mass on the site boundary would constitute an over development of the site that would result in the introduction of an incongruous form of development out of keeping with and detrimental to the character and appearance of the area. This would be contrary to Policy CP30 of the Council’s Core Strategy and Policies DMD 6, DMD 7, and DMD 8, DMD 9 and DMD 37 of the Council’s adopted Development Management Document as well as Policy 3.5 of the London Plan.
