HW/FUL/18/00398 - Land to the rear of 8 The Drive pdf icon PDF 572 KB

Minutes:

The Committee received a report and application (HW/FUL/18/00398) on the planning permission for the construction of 2 two bedroomed two storey houses with private gardens and parking spaces at land to the rear of 8 The Drive, Harlow, Essex.

 

Presentations were heard  from two objectors.

 

Councillor Hulcoop (seconded by Councillor Souter) proposed an amendment to Condition 4 to ensure the boundary wall was secured during and after the development. The amendment was carried.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission is REFUSED for the following reason: 

 

1.    The proposed scheme would constitute overdevelopment of the site and be contrary to the character and appearance of the area. The application is therefore contrary to policies H10 and BE3 of the Adopted Replacement Harlow Local Plan and principle DG28 of the Harlow Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document.
