11/0680C-Proposed Erection of a New Dwelling, 2 Rydal Way, Alsager, ST7 2EH for Mr Simon Palfreyman pdf icon PDF 1 MB

To consider the above application.

Minutes:

Notes: (a) Councillor S Jones (Ward Councillor); Councillor R Fletcher (Alsager Town Council); and Mr A Pickersgill (objector) addressed the Committee on this matter and spoke against the application.

 

The Committee considered a report in respect of planning application No. 11/0680C.

 

RESOLVED: That, contrary to the Planning Officer’s recommendation for approval, the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

 

1. The proposal, by reason of its size, height, form and design, would be a cramped form of development that would be intrusive in the street scene and out of keeping with the character of the existing properties in the immediate vicinity of the site. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies GR1 and GR2 of the adopted Congleton Borough Local Plan First Review 2005.

 

2. The proposal, by virtue of its size, height, design and position relative to the adjoining property number 176 Sandbach Road North, would be unduly dominant when viewed from that adjoining property, to the detriment of the residential amenities of the occupiers. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy GR6 of the adopted Congleton Borough Local Plan First Review 2005.
