2017/0401 - 61-63 More Lane, Esher

Minutes:

                        Three further letters of objection received.

 

                        The Sub-Committee, having reviewed the relevant material considerations, determined that the proposal would have a harmful impact upon the streetscene by virtue of the buildings height, mass and bulk, and that the proposed number of parking spaces would cause harm to future occupiers and parking stress on the adjoining roads.

 

Accordingly, the Sub-Committee resolved to

 

Refuse permission, contrary to the officer’s recommendation, for the following reasons set out below:

 

1. The proposed development, by virtue of its height, bulk and massing, would not respect the streetscene and would have a harmful impact upon the character of the area.  The proposal would therefore be contrary to policy DM2 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015, policies CS9 and CS17 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011 and the Design and Character Supplementary Planning Document 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

 

2. The proposed development would provide insufficient car parking for the number of units which would result in a poor living environment for occupiers and parking congestion and parking stress in the surrounding roads. The proposal would therefore be contrary to policy DM7 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015, policies CS9, CS17 and CS25 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011, the Design and Character Supplementary Planning Document 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.
