P/21/1903/FP - 52 CASTLE STREET PORTCHESTER PO16 9PU pdf icon PDF 853 KB

Minutes:

The Committee received the deputation referred to in Minute 4 above.

 

Councillor P J Davies, left the meeting at the start of this item and was not present for the debate or vote on the application.

 

Upon being proposed and seconded the officer recommendation to refuse planning permission, was voted on and CARRIED.

(Voting: 7 in favour; 1 against)

 

RESOLVED that PLANNNG PERMISSION be REFUSED.

 

Reasons for Refusal

 

The development would be contrary to Policy CS4 and CS15 of the Adopted Fareham Borough Core Strategy 2011 and Policies DSP3, DSP13 and DSP15 of the Adopted Local Plan Part 2: Development Sites and Policies Plan 2015, and paragraphs 159-164 of the NPPF and the Planning Practice Guidance and is unacceptable in that:

 

i)             The development would result in an unacceptable adverse impact on the living conditions of occupiers of neighbouring residential properties, namely 24 The Keep, due to the scale, bulk and massing of Plot Two on the rear garden area. The siting of Plot Two would result in an overbearing and oppressive impact, result in loss of outlook and sunlight for their rear garden;

 

ii)            The proposal fails to provide a sequential test that demonstrates that there are no other reasonably available sites appropriate for the proposed development in areas or low risk flooding;

 

iii)           The proposal would have likely adverse effects on the integrity of the Protected Sites around The Solent in combination with other developments due to the additional generation of the nutrients entering the water environment and the lack of appearance and appropriately secured mitigation; and

 

iv)           The proposal fails to provide appropriate mitigation of the likely adverse effects on the integrity of the Solent Water Special Protection Areas which, in combination with other developments, would arise due to the impacts of recreational disturbance.
