PROPOSAL: the proposal was for a variation of condition 2 (Approved Plans) attached to planning permission P/3667/19 (dated 11 March 2021) to allow addition of a rear dormer to 10 of the houses approved.
Councillor Marilyn Ashton proposed refusal for the following reason:
1) the additional former windows, by reason of their siting, will give rise to undue overlooking and loss of privacy to the dwellings nearby, over and above the approved proposal, and given that these rooms are now going to be used as studies, this will result in a loss of residential amenities within the locality, contrary to policies CS1 Harrow Core Strategy (2012), DM1 Harrow Development Management Policy (2013) and D1 London Plan (2021).
The proposal was seconded by Councillor Anjana Patel, put to the vote and agreed.
The Committee resolved to refuse officer recommendation.
The Planning Committee was asked to:
1) grant planning permission for the reason set out below, subject to the conditions in Appendix 1, and a variation to the S106 attached to planning permission P/3667/19 (dated 11 March 2021).
The Committee wished it to be recorded that the decision to refuse the application was by majority of votes.
Councillors Ashton, Baxter, Maru, Parekh, Patel and Shah voted to refuse the application.
Councillor Brown voted against the motion to refuse the application.
