PROPOSAL: alterations to the roof; two rooflights in front roof slope; external alterations.
Councillors Marilyn Ashton and Nitin Parekh stated that the proposed development was in a Conservation Area, and would be out of keeping with other properties.
The Committee agreed to accept officer recommendations.
The Committee was asked to REFUSE planning permission for the following reasons:
1) The proposal, by reason of the design of the rear dormer, its fenestration, use of modern materials would fall at odds, be overly dominant and obtrusive, failing to respect or harmonise with the character and appearance of the dwelling house, nor would it preserve or enhance the character or appearance of the dwelling house or part of Canons Park Estate Conservation Area, contrary to the design aspirations of the National Planning Policy Framework (2021), policies D3 and HC1 of the London Plan (2021), Policies CS1.B and CS1.D of the Harrow Core Strategy (2012), Policies DM1 and DM7 of the Harrow Development Management Policies Local Plan (2013), the Adopted Supplementary Planning Document Residential Design Guide (2010), and the Supplementary Planning Document Canons Park Estate Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Strategy (2013).
The Committee wished it to be recorded that the decision to refuse the application was unanimous.
