Minutes:

The Committee considered an application at 343 – 351 Reigate Road in Epsom Downs for the demolition of 345 Reigate Road and erection of 7 dwellings with associated access road, parking and landscaping.

George Hinton, of the Nork Residents’ Association, and Wendy Phillips, a local resident, spoke in objection to the application on the grounds that the proposed development would (a) cause harm to the character of the area, contrary to policies Ho9, Ho13 and Ho14 of the Borough Local Plan; and (b) result in overlooking due to the topography of the land and proximity to neighbouring residents’ properties.

Spencer Copping, the applicant’s agent, spoke in support of the application on the grounds that the proposed development would, on balance with a need for family homes in the area, not cause an unacceptable degree of harm to the character of the area since further revision of the plans in consultation with the planning officers and in accordance with the Borough Local Plan and National Planning Policy Framework.

A motion to defer the application for an additional site visit to be attended by Committee Members was proposed and seconded but upon a vote the motion to defer the application was not carried.

RESOLVED that planning permission be GRANTED as per the recommendation within the officer’s report and updated conditions/informative in addendum.
