Two late letters of objection had been received along with one late letter from the applicant in response to the raised objections.
The Sub-Committee was addressed by Mr. Ward, an objector and Mr. Mclelland, the applicant.
The Sub-Committee discussed in detail the planning application and concerns were raised that the scale and bulk of the proposed development would appear overly dominant in the street scene and be out of character in the local area.
The Sub-Committee, having reviewed the relevant material considerations resolved to
Refuse permission, contrary to the Officer’s recommendation, for the following reason:
1. The proposed development by reason of its mass and bulk would appear overly dominant in the street scene and be out of character in the area. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy DM2 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015, Policies CS4 and CS17 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011, the Elmbridge Design and Character SPD 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.
