45 16/01043/F: REDHILL AERODROME, KINGS MILL LANE, REDHILL

The Committee considered an application for engineering works to resurface, straighten and widen taxiway c/d.

 

A representative from Salfords and Sidlow Parish Council spoke against the application and a representative for the applicant spoke in its favour.

 

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

 

1. The proposal, by virtue of the extensive additional hard surfacing, constitutes inappropriate development within the Metropolitan Green Belt which would erode the openness of the Green Belt and conflict with the purposes thereof. The considerations in favour of the proposal are insufficient to clearly outweigh the harm to the Green Belt and any other harm, including the detriment to neighbour amenity from additional noise and disturbance due to loss of natural winter respite from flying, so as to constitute very special circumstances. As such, the proposal would be contrary to policy Co1 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005, CS1 and CS3 of the Reigate and Banstead Core Strategy and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

2. The proposal fails to provide an agreement to manage the use of the unlicensed runway, with the resultant potential for an uncontrolled increase in the intensity aircraft movements, associated activity and associated levels of general noise and disturbance, which would cause harm to the Green Belt and potential detriment to neighbour amenity. The arguments presented by the applicants in support of the proposal are insufficient to clearly justify such harm and thus the proposal would be contrary to policy Co1 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005, CS1 and CS3 of the Reigate and Banstead Core Strategy and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework.
 

46 17/00804/F : LAND TO THE REAR OF 92-96 PARTRIDGE MEAD, BANSTEAD

The Committee considered an application for construction of two semi-detached houses and one detached house, along with associated access, parking and landscaping.

 

An accompanied site inspection was undertaken in respect of this application. A request for a further accompanied site inspection to be made in the daytime was rejected upon a vote.

 

In the course of the debate members expressed concerns about the cramped nature of the site and the restrictions on access, in particular for emergency service vehicles. They also had concerns that the site would be car-dominated.

 

The Committee noted that refuse vehicles would be unable to access the properties, and queried the distance residents would have to wheel their bins and where the collection point would be, as it did not appear to be defined on the plans.

 

Upon the vote, the recommendation to approve the application was rejected, however, in the absence of any formal reasons for refusal having been proposed and seconded, as required by the Committee’s Protocol, it was

RESOLVED that the application be DEFERRED to the next meeting to allow formal reasons of refusal to be drafted for approval.


 

47 17/01403/F: 42 CARLTON ROAD, REDHILL

The Committee considered an application for demolition of the existing property with outbuildings and construction of three new four bedroom detached houses with off street parking and associated works.

 

A member of the public spoke against the application and the applicant’s representative spoke in its favour.

49 17/00714/F: MEROK PARK NURSING HOME, PARK ROAD, BANSTEAD

Application deferred.

50 17/01069/F: 38 RINGWOOD AVENUE, REDHILL

The Committee considered an application for demolition of the existing detached house and construction of two semi-detached 3 bedroom houses together with associated parking and amenity areas.

 

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

 

A member of the public spoke against the application and the applicant spoke in its favour.

 

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

 

1. The proposed development would, by reason of the height and depth of the proposed building and its close proximity to the side boundary with 40 Ringwood, result in a dominant and overbearing impact on the immediate garden area that that would harm the amenities of this neighbouring property, contrary to policies Ho9 and Ho13 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005 and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework in relation to ‘Requiring Good Design’.


 

51 17/01639/F: PARK VIEW, 105 BELL STREET, REIGATE

Application deferred

52 17/01708/F: 2 HERNBROOK, CHEQUERS LANE, WALTON

The Committee considered an application for demolition of the existing sub standard single storey dwelling and the erection of a two storey replacement dwelling, together with retrospective approval for new dropped kerb crossover access.

 

It was noted that an accompanied site inspection was held in June 2017, in respect of a previous application, which many members had attended.

 

A representative of Tadworth and Walton Residents Association and a member of the public spoke against the application. The applicant’s representative spoke in its favour.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the following grounds:

 

1. The proposed replacement dwelling, by virtue of its height, scale, bulk, depth and proximity to the side boundaries of Hernbrook Cottage and 1 Rose Cottages, would have a dominant and overbearing presence upon these properties, when viewed from their rear windows and private rear gardens. This would be harmful to their residential amenities and be contrary to Policies Ho9 and Ho13 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005.

 

2. The proposed replacement dwelling by virtue of its two first floor front windows serving 'Bedrooms 2 and 3' would result in an unacceptable level of overlooking to the private rear garden areas and rear windows of Hernbrook Cottage and 1 Rose Cottages. This would result in a harmful loss of privacy to these properties, detrimental to their residential amenities and contrary to Policies Ho9 and Ho13 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough Local Plan 2005.
