    Garden Suburb

    Minutes:

    The Planning Officer presented the report and addendum to the Committee.

     

    Professor Michael Sternberg, Mr Nick Jenkins (Planning Consultant speaking on behalf of 140 leaseholders) and Councillor Rohit Grover each addressed the Committee in objection to the application.

     

    The agent for the applicant addressed the Committee.

     

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

     

    1. The proposed development by reason of its size, siting and design would result in an incongruous form of development that would erode the uniformity of the buildings and the estate as a whole to the detriment of the visual amenities of the area and the character and appearance of the streetscene, would be harmful to the setting of the adjoining Hampstead Garden Suburb Conservation Area and would be detrimental to the visual amenities of occupiers of surrounding properties. As such, the proposed development would be contrary to policies CS1, CS5 and CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012) policies DM01, DM02 and DM06 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012) and the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016).

     

    2. The proposed development by reason of its siting over existing rooflights serving the top floor flats would lead to significant reduction of natural light being received to these flats and result in a substandard quality of accommodation giving rise to an unacceptable loss of existing residential amenities.  As such, the proposed development would be contrary to policies CS1, CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012, policies DM01 and DM02 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012), the Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016) and Sustainable Design and Construction SPD (2016).

     

    3. The development does not make any provision towards affordable housing. The proposal would therefore not provide the maximum viable amount of affordable housing, contrary to Policy DM10 of the Adopted Development Management Policies (2012), the Adopted Affordable Housing SPD (2007), the Adopted Planning Obligations SPD (2013) and Policy 3.12 of the Mayor's London Plan (2016).

     

    4. The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to provide a contribution towards carbon off-setting to achieve net zero carbon dioxide emissions from the residential component of the development. The proposal would therefore not address the impacts of the development, contrary to Policy 5.2 of the Mayor's London Plan (2016),  Policy CS13 of the Adopted Local Plan Core Strategy (2012), Policy DM04 of the Adopted Development Management Policies DPD (2012), the Adopted Sustainable Design and Construction SPD (2016) and the Adopted Planning Obligations SPD (2016).

     

    The vote was recorded as follows:

     

    For (refusal) – unanimous.

     

    Carried – the application was REFUSED.

    For (approval) – 5

    Against (approval) -1

     

     

    Carried – the application was APPROVED but DEFERRED for consideration of the conditions that should be attached to the planning permission.

The proposal therefore complies with policies CS1, CS5 and CS NPPF of the Adopted Core Strategy (2012) and policy DM01 of the Local Plan Development Management Policies Development Plan Document (2012) and the permission was subject to conditions to be determined by the committee at the next meeting in February 2019.
