Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered an application for the demolition of the existing chalet-style dwelling and the erection of a development of 5 flats in a two-storey building with roof accommodation together with the provision of refuse and recycling stores and five car parking spaces.

 

A motion to refuse the application was proposed and seconded and upon a vote it was RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the grounds that:

The development would provide insufficient off street parking and, by virtue of its bulk, mass and scale, result in a visually intrusive building within the street scene, detrimental to the visual character and amenities of the surrounding area. The proposal would therefore be contrary to CS1 and CS10 of the Reigate and Banstead Local Plan Core Strategy and Policies DES1, TAP1 and Annexe 4 of the Reigate and Banstead Local Plan Development Management Plan 2019.
