TM/18/00595/FL - G B Tatham and Co Ltd, 9 Willow Wents, Mereworth pdf icon PDF 108 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Demolition of existing office/workshop building and erection of 4 no. houses at G B Tatham and Co Ltd, 9 Willow Wents, Mereworth.

 

RESOLVED:  That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

(1)         The proposed development, by virtue of the siting, scale, massing and height of unit 1 when combined with its close proximity to the northern boundary shared with the immediate neighbour (11 Willow Wents), would result in an intrusive and dominant form of development when viewed from that neighbouring property, which would cause harm to the residential amenities of the occupants.  The development is therefore contrary to policy CP24 of the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Core Strategy 2007 and the requirements contained at paragraphs 127 (c and f) and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

RESOLVED:  That planning permission be GRANTED in accordance with the submitted details, conditions, reasons and informatives set out in the main and supplementary reports of the Director of Planning, Housing and Environmental Health; subject to;

 

(1)     Amended Conditions:

 

6.     No development shall be commenced until the following have been submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority:

           

(a)a contaminated land desktop study identifying all previous site uses, potential contaminants associated with those uses including a survey of the condition of any existing building(s) and any contaminated material contained within its construction, a conceptual model of the site indicating sources, pathways and receptors and any potentially unacceptable risks arising from contamination at the site;

(b)based on the findings of the desktop study, proposals for a site investigation scheme that will provide information for an assessment of the risk to all receptors that may be affected including those off site. The site investigation scheme should also include details of all demolition works, site clearance, ground investigations or site survey work that may be required to allow for intrusive investigations to be undertaken.

           

If, in seeking to comply with the terms of this condition, reliance is made on studies or assessments prepared as part of the substantive application for planning permission, these documents should be clearly identified and cross-referenced in the submission of the details pursuant to this condition.

           

Reason:  In the interests of amenity, public safety and human health and in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework 2018. 

           

7.     No development shall take place other than as required as part of any relevant approved site investigation works until the following have been submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority:

           

(a) results of the site investigations (including any necessary intrusive investigations) and a risk assessment of the degree and nature of any contamination on site and the impact on human health, controlled waters and the wider environment. These results shall include a detailed remediation method statement informed by the site investigation results and associated risk assessment, which details how the site will be made suitable for its approved end use through removal or mitigation measures. The method statement must include details of all works to be undertaken, proposed remediation objectives, remediation criteria, timetable of works and site management procedures. The scheme must ensure that the site cannot be determined as Contaminated Land as defined under Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (or as otherwise amended).

The submitted scheme shall include details of arrangements for responding to any discovery of unforeseen contamination during the undertaking hereby permitted.  Such arrangements shall include a requirement to notify the Local Planning Authority in writing of the presence of any such unforeseen contamination along with a timetable of works to be undertaken to make the site suitable for its approved end use.  ...  view the full minutes text for item AP2 18/32

TM/18/00988/FL - 31 Harrison Road, Borough Green pdf icon PDF 104 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Demolition of existing single garage and porch. Construction of 1 no new three bedroom dwelling, driveway and crossover to serve the new dwelling and the extension and alteration of 31 Harrison Road, Borough Green.

 

RESOLVED: That planning permission be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

(1)     The proposal, by virtue of its siting, layout and overall size, would result in an incongruous form of development that would erode the openness of a corner plot to the detriment of the visual amenities of the street scene and prevailing character of the wider locality.  The development is therefore contrary to policy CP24 of the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Core Strategy 2007 and the requirements contained at paragraphs 127 (c and d) and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.
