Demolish existing dwelling and erection of replacement dwelling and detached studio at Bonhill Cottage, Basted Lane, Crouch.
RESOLVED: That planning permission be GRANTED in accordance with the submitted details, conditions, reasons and informatives set out in the report of the Director of Planning, Housing and Environmental Health, subject to
(1) Additional Conditions
11. The annex hereby approved shall be used only for purposes incidental to the enjoyment of the related dwelling house and no trade or business shall be carried out therefrom.
Reason: To safeguard the residential amenity of the nearby dwellings and preserve the character of the locality.
12. The window on the first floor west elevation of the annexe shall be fitted with obscured glass and, apart from any top-hung light shall be non-opening. This work shall be effected before the room is occupied and shall be retained thereafter.
Reason: To minimise the effect of overlooking onto adjoining property.
(2) Additional Informative
1. The applicant is advised that the annexe building hereby approved cannot be occupied as a separate unit of residential accommodation and this would amount to a material change of use requiring planning permission in its own right.
[Speakers: Platt Parish Council (Brian Biggs) and Karen Southon – applicant]
