27/10/2021 - 20211037 - 55 Rochester Road, Gravesend, Kent ref: 3605    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 27/10/2021 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 27/10/2021

Effective from: 27/10/2021

Decision:

Resolved that application 20211037 be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

  1. The proposals are considered to constitute an overdevelopment of the rear garden which would result in a comparatively cramped form of backland development and would be incongruous considering the existing pattern of development and the character of the residential gardens which comprise the area. It is therefore harmful to the character and appearance of the site and the wider locality and would contravene Policies CS14, CS15 and CS19 of the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy September 2014 which ensure new development will integrate well with the surrounding local area. At a national level the proposed development would also contravene paragraph 71 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2021) which states 'Local planning authorities should consider the case for setting out policies to resist inappropriate development of residential gardens, for example where development would cause harm to the local area'.

 

  1. The proposal would result in a detrimental impact on the amenities of the occupiers of the flats at No. 55 in terms of loss of private and shared amenity space, contrary to Policy CS19 of the Core Strategy 2014 and para. 130f of the National Planning Policy Framework 2021.

 

  1. The proposal would fail to provide adequate private amenity space and would result in a detrimental impact on the amenities of future occupiers of the dwellings, contrary to Policy CS19 of the Core Strategy 2014 and para. 130f of the National Planning Policy Framework 2021.

 

  1. The proposal fails to secure a contribution towards strategic mitigation measures within Special Protection Areas, and in the absence of this contribution or adequate information to inform an Appropriate Assessment, the development fails to comply with the requirements of the Habitat Regulations and Section 14 (specifically paragraphs 180 and 181) of the National Planning Policy Framework 2021 and Policy CS12 of the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy 2014.

 

 


27/10/2021 - 20210791 - 6 Sheppy Place, Gravesend, Kent, DA12 1BT ref: 3604    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 27/10/2021 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 27/10/2021

Effective from: 27/10/2021

Decision:

Resolved that application 20210791 be REFUSED Planning Permission for the following reason:

 

The proposed development by virtue of its siting and size would create an overly dominant boundary wall that would create an unneighbourly form of development that would adversely affect the outlook, privacy and safety for the occupiers of 5 Sheppy Place.  The proposal is therefore considered to be contrary to the requirements of Policies CS14 and CS19 of the Gravesham Local Plan Core Strategy 2014, and paragraphs 92 and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2021).
