    PROPOSAL: Erection of a four storey building containing 26No. 2 bed flats and 8No. 3 bed flats and erection of 3No. 3 storey 4 bed terraced houses, with associated parking, access and landscaping works following demolition of the existing commercial buildings.

     

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

     

    ‘THAT the option at 3.1 of the report be adopted, namely:

     

    That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

    The proposed development, by virtue of its size, scale, height and design, will result in an obtrusive and incongruous form of development that fails to relate to surrounding development, or make a positive contribution to the street scene or the quality of the environment. The proposal would therefore severely detract from the character and appearance of the surrounding area, and fail to create an attractive community, contrary to Policies QD02 and H08 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraph 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

    The applicant has failed to enter into a legal agreement to secure the provision of affordable housing, and the delivery of the necessary planning obligations required in order to mitigate the impacts of the proposed development on the local infrastructure and make the development acceptable in all other respects. The application is therefore contrary to Policies SP41 and SP23 of the Thanet Local Plan, and paragraphs 55, 57 and 58 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

    The proposed development will result in additional 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 securing an acceptable form of mitigation to relieve the pressure, the proposed development would be contrary to policy SP29 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraph 182 of the National Planning Policy Framework and the Habitats Directive.

     

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