Minutes:

Proposed single dwelling with partial change of use to residential at Stables and Land East of Pilgrims Way, Wouldham.

 

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

 

The proposed development, by virtue of its overall footprint, scale, detailed design and use of materials would fail to preserve or enhance the local character, qualities and distinctiveness of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As such, the proposed development fails to meet the requirements of the restrictive policy contained at paragraph 172 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2019. Furthermore, by virtue of the same characteristics, the development would appear out of keeping with the prevailing local environment, appearing as an obtrusive form of development when viewed from the surrounding landscape. As such, the development would cause visual harm to the visual amenities of the locality contrary to the requirements of policy CP24 of the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Core Strategy 2007, policy SQ1 of the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Managing Development and the Environment DPD 2010 and the requirements of paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework 2018.

[Speakers:  Mr E Bell – Wouldham Parish Council and Mr J Drew – agent to the applicant]
