    Planning Statement

    Planning Statement Addendum (dated 15/03/2019)

     

    In accordance with paragraphs 38-57 of the NPPF, the Council takes a positive and proactive approach to development proposals, focused on solutions. To assist applicants in submitting development proposals, the Local Planning Authority (LPA) has produced planning policies and written guidance to guide applicants when submitting applications. These are all available on the Council's website. A pre-application advice service is also offered.

     

    The applicant did not seek to engage with the LPA prior to the submission of this application through the established formal pre-application advice service. The LPA has discussed the proposal with the applicant/agent where necessary during the application process. Unfortunately the scheme is not considered to accord with the Development Plan. If the applicant wishes to submit a further application, the Council is willing to assist in identifying possible solutions through the pre-application advice service.

    Cllr Ryde moved a motion to refuse the application on the grounds below and was seconded by Cllr Farrier:

     

    The proposed development by reason of its size, siting, bulk and design would have an overbearing appearance which would be detrimental to the visual and residential amenities of the occupiers of surrounding properties and would result in overlooking of 183A West Heath Road leading to a loss of privacy detrimental to the amenities of the occupiers of that property. The development would therefore be contrary to policies CS1 and CS5 of the Adopted Core Strategy 2012, policy DM01 of the Adopted Barnet Development Management Policies DPD 2012, the Adopted Residential Design Guidance 2016 and the Adopted Sustainable Design and Construction SPD 2016.
