20210058 - Land at junction with Davis Avenue and Rosebank Gardens, Northfleet, Gravesend, Kent DA11 8RZ - Erection of a single storey dwelling with associated works.

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

Resolved that application 20210058 be REFUSED Planning Permission on the following grounds:

1. The proposed dwelling will result in a prominent and cramped over-development of the site that would be incongruous with the character and appearance of the layout of the residential properties in the surrounding area. The proposal is therefore considered to be contrary to the requirements of Policies CS14, CS15 and CS19 of the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy (2014), and paragraphs 117, 122, 124, and 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019); and

2. The proposed dwelling will result in an unacceptable and cramped amenity space for future occupiers, and would also be likely to experience unacceptable and mutual levels of overlooking and loss of privacy from the proposed layout and the close presence of Nos. 44-46 Rosebank Gardens. The proposal would therefore fail to provide a high standard of amenity for future occupiers and existing properties, which would conflict with the requirements of the SPG2 Residential Layout Guidelines (2020), Policy CS19 of the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy (2014) and paragraph 127f of the National Planning Policy Framework (2019).
