Agenda item

2018/1695 - Site of Taggs Boatyard, 44 Summer Road, Thames Ditton

Minutes:

                    The Sub-Committee was addressed by Mr. Barr, an objector.

 

Refuse for the reason outlined in the agenda and subject to the following additional reasons for refusal:

 

Additional Reasons for Refusal:

 

2.  By reason of the location of the first and second floor level windows serving flats 2 and 6 situated on the rear of the development facing towards Summer Road, they will result in significant adverse impact being created in terms of loss of privacy and amenity of the occupiers of No. 46 Summer Road.  As such the proposal is contrary to policies DM2 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015, CS8 and CS17 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011, the Design & Character Supplementary Planning Document 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

 

3.  By reason of the increased eaves and ridge heights of the building fronting the river together with the increased depth of the flank wall closest to No. 29 Riversdale Road, this proposal exacerbates the impact of what was already going to be a large building, to the extent that it is harmful to the amenity of residents on Thames Ditton Island and to the wider riverside views.  This is contrary to policies DM2 and DM13 of the Elmbridge Development Management Plan 2015, CS8 and CS17 of the Elmbridge Core Strategy 2011, the Design & Character Supplementary Planning Document 2012 and the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.
