132 16/02680F: FORMER LIQUID AND ENVY, STATION ROAD,
REDHILL

The Committee considered an application for full planning application for the development of up to 133 apartments, associated car parking, landscaped areas including a new public realm, sustainable drainage measures, highways and associated works, including the demolition of all existing structures on site.

An unaccompanied site inspection was undertaken in respect of this application.

 

Members debated the merits of the facade and recognised that, on balance, the benefits of the proposed scheme outweighed its retention.

 

In respect of the pylon, however, the Committee was keen to see it retained, and if this was not possible, for it to be replaced by a suitably prominent landmark feature.

 

It was also agreed that permitted development rights for any telecommunication masts should be removed, in the interests of good design.

 

Members also requested that a clawback agreement should form part of the legal terms, to provide a further contribution towards affordable housing, in the case that the viability of the development should be greater than currently anticipated.

 

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded but failed upon a vote.

 

RESOLVED, that planning permission be GRANTED subject to

 

(1) the completion of all documentation required to create a planning obligation under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to secure

 

(i) fifteen (15) units of affordable housing as shared ownership tenure;
(ii) a contribution of £168,000 towards sustainable travel measures in and around Redhill town centre, in particular improving the linkage between the site, the town centre, the railway station and the bus station;
(iii) the design and construction of a shared cycle footway around the border of the site in accordance with a scheme to be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority;
(iv) all associated costs including agreement/legal fees, civil engineering and traffic management will be met by the developer and the proposed cycle footway shall become highway maintainable at the public expense;
(v) a clawback agreement requiring a contribution towards affordable housing should the ultimate viability of the project justify this; and
(vi) the Council’s legal costs in preparing said agreement

In the event that a satisfactorily completed obligation is not received by 31 July 2017 or such longer period as may be agreed, the Head of Places and Planning be authorised to refuse permission for the following reason:

The proposal fails to provide make adequate provision for affordable housing and adequate contributions towards necessary improvements to local transport infrastructure and is therefore contrary to policies Mo4 and Mo7 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005 and policies CS12, CS15 and CS17 of the Reigate and Banstead Core Strategy 2014.

 

(2) removal of permitted development rights for telecommunication masts; and

 

(3) the following conditions:

 

1. The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.
Reason:
To comply with Section 91(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 as amended by Section 51 (1) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

2. The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans:

(f) Only minimal security lighting should be used outside the hours stated above; and
(g) Building materials and machinery should not be stored on the highway and contractors’ vehicles should be parked with care so as not to cause an obstruction or block visibility on the highway.
Further details of these noise and pollution measures can be obtained from the Council’s Environmental Health Services Unit. In order to meet these requirements and to promote good neighbourliness, the Council recommends that this site is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme - www.ccscheme.org.uk/index.php/site-registration.

 

2. The permission hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to carry out any works on the highway. The applicant is advised that prior approval must be obtained from the highway authority before any works are carried out on any footway, footpath, carriageway, or verge to form or modify a vehicle crossover to install dropped kerbs. Please see www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/road-permits-and-licences/vehicle-crossovers-or-dropped-kerbs

 

3. The developer is reminded that it is an offence to allow materials to be carried from the site and deposited on or damage the highway from uncleaned wheels or badly loaded vehicles. The Highway Authority will seek, wherever possible, to recover any expenses incurred in clearing, cleaning or repairing highway surfaces and prosecutes persistent offenders. (Highways Act 1980 Sections 131, 148, 149)
 

135 17/00241/HHOLD: 22 DOWNS WAY, TADWORTH

The Committee considered an application for retrospective planning application for the demolition of the original garage and the erection of two storey side, front and rear extension and demolishing the unauthorised rear roof dormer and habitable loft space, reducing the ridge height & eave height of the existing building with revised landscaping.

 

An accompanied site inspection was undertaken for this application.

 

Two members of the public spoke against the application and the applicant spoke in its favour.

 

During the debate the following points were noted:

 

• The current proposed plans appeared to still be inaccurate as it was difficult to see how the positioning of the rooflights would allow them to light the hall below.
• It was clear that there would be an impact upon the amenities of No. 20 Downs Way due to the size and proximity of the proposed extended house and former boiler house at the side.
• The proposed development would be out of character with the area due to its size and scale.
• The height of the (former) boiler room was overbearing and out of keeping.
• The combination of the additional height and bulk of the proposed development amounted to an over-development.

 

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded.

 

RESOLVED, that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

 

1. The proposed extensions would, by reason of their excessive forward and rear projection and height, result in an overly dominant form of development and an overdevelopment of the site that would detract from the spacious character of the street scene. The proposal would thereby be contrary to policy Ho9, Ho13 and Ho16 of the Reigate and Banstead borough Local Plan 2005 and the 2004 SPG: Householder Extensions and Alterations.


2. The proposed two storey front extension and increase in the height in particular of the single storey side extension in relation to the adjacent property No 24 Downs Way, result in an overbearing and overly dominant form of development and loss of amenity (including light) to the ground floor side facing window within that property and rear patio area. The proposal would thereby be contrary to policy Ho9, Ho13 and Ho16 of the Reigate and Banstead borough Local Plan 2005 and the 2004 SPG: Householder Extensions and Alterations.
