    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL:  Variation of condition 2 of planning permission reference F/TH/17/1066 for the change of use of the existing first floor to amusement centre (Sui Generis) with associated first floor rear extension and the provision of an ancillary café (A3) and the refurbishment of the first floor front balcony to allow replacement of windows and doors to front and side elevations with aluminium sash windows and doors

     

    Speaking in favour of the application was Mr Brown.

     

    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 aluminium windows and doors to the front and part of the eastern side elevation, by virtue of their material, finish and appearance, would introduce an inappropriate and non-traditional modern material to the upper floors of this highly prominent building in the Margate Seafront Conservation Area, which would diminish the character and significance of the application property and the quality of the previously approved scheme, resulting in severe harm to the character and appearance of the application property and the wider Conservation Area. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraphs 127, 130, 192 and 196 of the National Planning Policy Framework.
