    PROPOSAL: Erection of first floor balcony with railings together with installation of two french doors to front elevation

     

    Speaking in favour of the application was Ms Banks.

     

    Speaking as ward councillor was Councillor Rogers.

     

    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 proposed balcony together with the structural works to install it would result in substantial alterations to the historic layout and character of the building, detracting from the understanding of the structure and its features. The proposed works would therefore result in significant harm to the historic and architectural importance of the grade II listed building, which is not outweighed by the public benefits of the development, contrary to paragraphs 131, 132 and 134 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’”

     

    Following debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared LOST.

     

    Then, it was proposed by Councillor Tomlinson and seconded by Councillor Ashbee:

    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Change of use of basement to 1no. 1-bed self-contained flat

     

    Speaking as ward councillor was Councillor Bambridge.

     

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

     

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

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

     

    1  The sites lies within the Westgate-On-Sea Conservation Area, and it is the duty of the council, as the Local Planning Authority to pay special attention to the desirability of preserving and enhancing its character and appearance. The proposed lightwells by virtue of their siting, materials and appearance would result in an incongruous, uncharacteristic and intrusive feature within the street scene, which would not relate to the uniform character and appearance within this part of the Westgate-On-Sea Conservation Area resulting in an alien feature at odds with the surrounding character and appearance of the locality. The proposed development will therefore result in less than substantial harm to the character and appearance of the surrounding Conservation Area, which is not considered to be outweighed by a public benefit, and is therefore contrary to Policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraphs 127, 130, 192, 193 and 196 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     2  The proposed change of use of the basement to a self-contained flat would provide an unacceptable standard of residential accommodation for its future occupiers, by virtue of the layout, ensuing levels of natural light and ventilation to the unit, and outlook from the unit.  The proposal would also result in a residential unit of limited size, which fails to meet the minimum national space standards as set out within Draft Local Plan Policies QD03 and QD04 and the Council's Supplementary Planning Guidance on Conversion to Flats. The proposal is therefore considered to be contrary to Policy D1 of the Local Plan, Draft Local Plan Policies QD03 and QD04, and paragraph 127 of the National Planning Policy Framework, which seeks to secure high quality design and a high standard of amenity for all future occupants of development.

     

     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 paragraph 118 of the NPPF and the Habitats Directive.

     

     4  An acoustic assessment has not been submitted, and therefore the application has failed to demonstrate that there would not be significant harm to the living conditions of future occupiers as a result of the proximity to and relationship with the commercial premises above, and the adjacent railway, contrary to Policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraph 127 of the NPPF.’”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.
