    PROPOSAL: Retrospective application for erection of single storey rear extension together with erection of dormer windows to front and both side elevations, installation of rooflights and alterations to roof to facilitate loft conversion, with replacement of external cladding with tile hanging to dormer windows.

     

    Mrs Gibson spoke in favour of the application.

     

    It was proposed by  the Chair and seconded by the Vice-Chair:

     

    ‘that the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

     1  The development, by virtue of the considerable scale, form and prominent siting of the north-eastern dormer window, results in a dominant and bulky addition to the north eastern roof slope, and forms a visually intrusive and discordant form of development in the street scene, which is architecturally unrelated to the application property, and unduly disrupts the regularity in terms of the scale, form and design to the row of bungalows within which the application property is sited. The development is therefore severely detrimental to the character and appearance of the area, and contrary to Policy QD02 of the Thanet Local Plan, and paragraph 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework.’

     

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