“THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

 

‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

1         The signs, by virtue of their prominent siting, size, design and material composition, form a visually dominating element which fails to preserve the significance of the Listed Building and would result in harm to the designated heritage asset, which is not outweighed by any public benefit, contrary to paragraphs 192, 193 and 196 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’”

469.       R06 - FH/TH/19/0121 - 1 Colemans Stairs Road, Birchington

 

PROPOSAL: Erection of a two storey front and side extension

 

It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by Councillor Stevens:

 

“THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

 

‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

 

1         The proposed development, by virtue of the scale, height, form, design and location the two storey front and side extension is considered to result in a discordant, dominant and visually intrusive form of development within the street scene, which would poorly relate to the form and design of the existing property, and would extend significantly forward of two storey development in the locality, thereby diminishing the spacious character and pattern of development within this part of Coleman's Stairs Road, in a highly prominent, corner plot location. The proposed development is therefore considered to result in severe harm to the character and appearance of the area, contrary to Policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraphs 127 and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’”

 

Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared CARRIED.
