TM/18/01755/FL - Rear of 61 Offham Road, West Malling pdf icon PDF 87 KB

Additional documents:


Erection of a detached 2 storey dwelling to the rear of 61 Offham Road, West Malling.


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


(1)             The proposed development by virtue of the siting, scale, massing and height of the new dwelling, when combined with its close proximity to the west boundary shared with the immediate neighbour (63 Offham Road) and the particular layout of that neighbouring plot, would result in an intrusive and dominant form of development when viewed for 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.


[Speakers:   Mrs G Fox, member of the public and Ms K Kenny, on behalf of the applicant]
