Chipstead Planning Applications to October 2019

You can examine any of these applications in detail on the planning section of the RBBC website at:

The CRA carries out an assessment of each planning application based upon the information presented on the RBBC website and the planning rules in force at the time.  If additional clarification is required, we will contact the RBBC planning officer concerned and/or our local councillor. It is not possible for the CRA to proactively contact individual residents who may be affected by a planning application, so if you have a strong objection or have additional information, please contact the CRA at:

19/01909/LBC; 19/01908/F; 19/01895/ADV – Ramblers Rest Outwood Lane Chipstead - Internal and external alterations including additional outside tables, new external lighting and signage.

Objections submitted – adverse impact on the surrounding residential properties arising from the increase in tables in the outside areas particularly the additional tables at the front of the property directly opposite Cleave Prior; potential for light pollution from the additional outdoor lighting in this unsustainable location.

19/01825/F - Demolition and redevelopment of the site for a 3-storey building for mixed use development for a shop (Use Class A1) at ground floor with 10 residential units (Use Class C3) at first and second floors, car parking, landscaping and associated works. - Prospect Wells House Outwood Lane Chipstead.

Objections submitted on the impact of further extensive building in this part of Chipstead which detracts from and further threatens the rural nature of the environment and transition to the Green Belt. The layout and siting, both in itself and relation to adjoining buildings, spaces and views, is inappropriate and unsympathetic to the appearance and character of the local area.  Before the siting of a supermarket in this area is approved, careful consideration is required as to the need for further retail space and the impact upon the pre-existing retail space in the area.  Parking is an obvious cause for concern.  The existing retail, office and commercial space in Rectory Lane has limited roadside parking.  This will be put under further pressure from such a development.  Overflow parking from the retail space and certainly from the residential development has nowhere to park in this area except for Rectory Lane.  The 10 residential apartments have 10 parking spaces leaving no space for people who bring their work vehicles home and no parking spaces for visitors to those living in the flats. There is no data provided of the intended operating hours of the retail space to allow for a proper impact assessment on the area.

19/01689/S73 – Parcel of land south-west of Reeves Rest – Conversion of rural building into a single residential unit, variation of conditions.  Amendments to roofing materials, door openings and fenestration and installation of drainage system. To provide information on landscaping and construction date.

No objections.

No objections.

19/01005/HH – 1 Pidgeon House Farm White Hill Chipstead – To create a new sole use driveway into our property. The application is from one of 2 semi-detached properties that currently share the existing drive.  As the shared drive no longer provides a suitable access to the property, the applicants are seeking permission to build a new, single use driveway to their property.  No objections.

19/01707/F – 11A High Road Chipstead – Proposed loft rooms including rear dormers and amended roof profile with 1st floor rear extension.

Objections submitted upon adverse impact, the loss of light and dominance for the neighbouring property.  The site is already heavily developed.

19/01767/HH – Doghurst Cottage Doghurst Lane Chipstead – The proposal seeks the extension of living space within the footprint of the existing house vacating the space of the current garage as well as including internal modifications to the existing kitchen and utility area, new construction of separate garage building and extension of first floor space by introduction of a gable facade where the catslide roof is currently located.

No objections.

19/01831/HH – Ashleigh High Road Chipstead - Two storey front and side extension, formation of front porch, partial removal of existing rear extension, garage conversion and internal alterations

The proposal is to create a two-storey dwelling to the same footprint as the previous planning permission 16/00780/OUT but to a different design.  There is extensive tree coverage on the site and the tree protection measures identified in the previous permission should be retained as well as the need to have in mind the Local Distinctiveness criteria in terms of the design, siting and build of the property.

19/01770/HH – Keepers Starrock Lane Chipstead - Demolition of an existing entrance porch and erection of a new single storey entrance porch

No objections

19/01524/F – Cleave Prior Cottage Bridge Way Chipstead - Proposed new dwelling

Application process has restarted now the correct ownership certificate has been submitted.  Objections have been submitted to the design and siting of this development and the adverse impact upon the neighbours and the locality.  It has also been queried whether this is the proper location for a new property to be sited when it is proposed not to connect it to mains sewerage.  The siting of the development also puts pressure on mature trees on the site that provide a significant visual amenity to the area.

 Court Mead Coulsdon Lane – Enforcement review

Planning were satisfied that the wall, as a replacement for the existing fence, did not need planning permission and that the new access was for SCC to consider as the highways authority.  SCC advise that there are no highways issues in putting in this additional access onto Coulsdon Lane.  However, as the new wall with pillars once completed appears higher than the previous fence, the matter was referred to Enforcement with a view to whether a retrospective planning application was now required.
