Minutes:

The Committee considered the written report of the Executive Manager - Communities relating to the following applications, which had been circulated previously.

 

18/02286/FUL - Demolish existing bungalow and erect 4 no. semi-detached dwellings (resubmission) – Whitegates 9 Thelda Avenue, Keyworth, Nottinghamshire

 

Updates

 

A representation from a neighbour objecting to the application was received after the agenda had been published and was circulated before the meeting.

 

In accordance with the Council’s Public Speaking Protocol for Planning Committee Mrs Susan Poole (objector) and Councillor Rob Inglis (ward Councillor) addressed the meeting.

 

Comments

 

Members of the committee considered that the proposal would have an overbearing and overshadowing impact on windows in the side elevation of the neighbouring property (Greenacres), serving the lounge, by reason of the height, massing and proximity of the buildings to the boundary with this property, to the detriment of the amenities of the occupants of this property.

 

DECISION

 

THE ABOVE PLANNING APPLICATION WAS REFUSED PLANNING PERMISSION  FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON.

 

1.         The proposal, by reason of the height and massing of the dwellings and proximity of the pair to the northern boundary of the site, would result in an overbearing and overshadowing impact to the side windows of the neighbouring property at ‘Greenacres’, thereby having a detrimental impact on the residential amenity of occupiers of this neighbouring property, contrary to paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) 2018 which, amongst other things, requires developments to create places with a high standard of amenity for existing and future users, Policy GP2 (Amenity and Design) of the Rushcliffe Borough Non Statutory Replacement Local Plan and the objectives of the Rushcliffe Residential Design Guide which seek to safeguard the amenities of neighbouring occupiers from unacceptable impacts, including through loss of daylight and overbearing impacts.

 

 

18/02578/FUL - Proposed erection of new dwelling.- Land south west of 98 Nicker Hill, Keyworth, Nottinghamshire.

 

 

 

Updates

 

Representations from the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA) and the applicant’s agent were received after the agenda had been published and were circulated before the meeting.

 

In accordance with the Council’s Public Speaking Protocol for Planning Committee Mr Gary Neill (objector) and Councillor Andy Edyvean (ward Councillor) addressed the meeting.

 

Comments

 

Members of the committee considered that the proposed access and parking arrangements, and increase in vehicular movements generated by the development would give rise to noise and disturbance to the neighbouring properties to the detriment of the amenities of the occupiers of those dwellings.

 

DECISION

 

THE ABOVE PLANNING APPLICATION WAS REFUSED PLANNING PERMISSION  FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON.

 

1.            The proposal would be likely to generate increased vehicular movements and lead to reduced parking space for 184 Mount Pleasant which would result in a detrimental impact to the residential amenity of the neighbouring properties at number 182 and 184 Mount Pleasant by reason of increased noise and disturbance from vehicle movements, contrary to paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) 2018 and Policy GP2 (Amenity and Design) of the Rushcliffe Borough Non Statutory Replacement Local  ...  view the full minutes text for item 31.
