In accordance with the Council’s Public Speaking Protocol for Planning Committee, Mr J Foot (on behalf of the Applicant) Mr B Hunt (Objector) and Councillor R Walker (Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee.

 

Comments

 

Members of the Committee expressed their concerns in respect of the overbearing nature of the housing development, including the height of ridge, windows and patios and how this would compromise the privacy of neighbouring property. Members also expressed concern that the design of housing development was not in keeping with the character of the rural village in which it was set and that it would have a negative affect on local amenity. Additionally, Members noted that the housing development was based in the greenbelt.

 

DECISION

 

PLANNING PERMISSION BE REFUSED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

1.              The scale of the dwellings, elevated ground floor levels, raised window heights and raised rear terraces of the proposal would result in a harmful and unacceptable impact on the amenities of neighbouring properties. As such, the proposal would be contrary to criterion 4 of Policy 1 (Development Requirements) of the Local Plan Part 2: Land and Planning Policies

 

2.         The massing scale and proportion of the proposal would be inconsistent within its location in the village. As such the proposal would be contrary to the provisions of Policy 10(2b; 2f) (Design and Enhancing Local Identify) of the Rushcliffe Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy and at odds with Paragraph 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework which advocates the refusal of proposals which do not reflect local design policies.

 

22/00854/FUL - Erection of single storey dwelling including associated landscaping, parking and access works - Land To The Corner Of Ashley Road And Church Drive, Keyworth Nottingham Nottinghamshire NG12 5FJ.
