    Speaking as Ward Councillor was Councillor Ashbee.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by the Vice Chairman:

     

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

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

    1  The dwelling, by virtue of the small plot size, large set back from the highway, poor relationship with Bridge Road and dwellings contained therein, and the enclosed nature of the site, fails to respect the surrounding pattern of development and the character and appearance of the area, to the detriment of the visual amenities of the locality, contrary to the aims of saved policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan  and paragraphs 91, 127 and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     2  The provision of the two bedroom dwelling, by virtue of its limited size, has resulted in an unacceptable standard of residential accommodation for occupiers and future occupiers of this site. The provision of this dwelling is therefore contrary to the aims of saved policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan, draft policies QD03 and QD04 of the Draft Thanet Local Plan, the Nationally Described Space Standards and the aims of paragraphs 117 and 127 of the NPPF.

     

     3  The proposed development will result in increased recreational pressure on the Thanet Coast and Sandwich Bay Special Protection Area (SPA), and Sandwich Bay and Hacklinge Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and in the absence of an acceptable form of mitigation to relieve the pressure, the proposed development would be contrary to paragraphs 170, 176 and 177 of the NPPF and the Habitats Directive.’

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by the Vice Chairman:

     

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

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

     

    1  The proposed two storey side extension by virtue of its width, height, scale, design, siting and prominent corner location would result in an incongruous, dominant and visually intrusive form of development within the street scene, which would project significantly forward of the established building line of properties in Cornford Road and therefore out of keeping with the surrounding pattern of development, to the detriment of 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 LOST.
