Councillor Christopher Baxter proposed refusal for the following reason:

 

1)    the proposed reduction of on-site parking spaces from 71 to 33 for 187 units is unacceptable in this locality and would give rise to overspill parking in the surrounding residential roads, resulting in a loss of residential amenity to the residents thereof and to the future occupiers of the development, contrary to CS1 Harrow Core Strategy (2012), DM1, DM42 Harrow Development Management Policy (2013).

 

The proposal was seconded by Councillor Zak Wagman and agreed.

 

The Committee resolved to refuse officer recommendations.

RECOMMENDATION B

 

That if, by 1st July 2022 or such extended period as may be agreed in writing by the Interim Chief Planning Officer, the section 106 Planning Obligation is not completed, then delegate the decision to the Chief Planning Officer to REFUSE planning permission for the following reason: the proposed variation, in the absence of a Deed of Variation to the Section 106 (dated 16th August 2019) to provide the appropriate variation that aligns with the improvements, benefits and monitoring that directly relate to the current planning permission (P/1619/16 dated 28/08/2019), and would so fail to enable the highway work requirements as a  ...  view the full minutes text for item 15.

Councillor Christopher Baxter proposed refusal for the following reason:

 

1)    the proposed development will appear as visually obtrusive, overbearing and out of character in a road which is predominantly characterised by detached dwelling houses and where there is a great deal of uniformity in the overall style and form of dwelling houses along the road, and so the cumulative impact of this proposal would give rise to a discordant, unwelcome and harmful interruption in the pattern of development in the locality to the detriment of the residential and visual amenities of the neighbouring properties, contrary to policy CS1 Harrow Core Strategy (2012), DM1 Harrow Development Management Policies (2013), D1 London Plan (2021).

 

The proposal was seconded by Councillor Zak Wagman, put to the vote and agreed.

 

The Committee resolved to refuse officer recommendations.

Councillor Christopher Baxter proposed refusal for the following reason:

 

1)    the proposed development offers an inadequate standard of amenities by reason of the first floor 1 bed flat not having access to the rear garden amenity space to the detriment of the amenities of the future occupiers and contrary to CS1 Harrow Core Strategy (2012), DM1 and DM26 Harrow Development Management Policies (2013), D1 London Plan (2021) and Harrow Council's SPD Residential Design Guide (2010).

PROPOSAL:  redevelopment to provide two storey building with habitable roof space comprising of eight flats (6 x 1 bed and 2 x 2 bed); landscaping; bin and cycle stores (demolition of existing dwelling and outbuilding).

 

Councillor Zak Wagman proposed refusal for the following reason:

 

1)    the proposal provides no on-site disabled parking spaces to the detriment of the future occupiers and there is no credible and practical suggestion as to where, given the location of the site, an off-site disabled space could be provided near enough to the development to cope with the needs of someone with mobility issues, to the detriment of the future occupiers' amenities, who may require disabled parking facilities and contrary to policies CS1 Harrow Core Strategy (2012), T6.1 London Plan (2021), DM1 Harrow development Management Plan (2013).

 

The proposal was seconded by Councillor Salim Chowdhury, put to the vote and agreed.
