18/02628/F - Land to the rear of 48 Brighton Road and rear of 10 Church Road, Horley pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Two proposed dwellings to the rear of 48 Brighton Road.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered an application at the land to the rear of 48 Brighton Road and the rear of 10 Church Road in Horley for two proposed dwellings.

The Committee discussed the impact of the proposals in respect of highways access, parking, neighbour amenity, design, character of the local area and overdevelopment.

Reasons for refusal were proposed and seconded and upon a vote it was RESOLVED that planning permission be REFUSED on the grounds that:

1.    The proposed development, by virtue of the limited space around the new access drive, parking spaces and proposed houses, would appear cramped with limited opportunity for soft landscaping which, due to the back-land location fronting onto the adjacent large surface car park, would appear an incongruous form of development out of keeping with and harmful to the pattern of development and character of the surrounding area, contrary to Policies Ho9, Ho13 and Ho14 of the Reigate and Banstead Borough           Local Plan 2005, Policy CS4 of the Reigate and Banstead Core Strategy 2014 and guidance contained within the Local Distinctiveness Design Guide SPG 2004.
