Revised application to demolish existing dwelling. Erection of a 3-storey building comprising 6 flats; provision of new access, 9 parking spaces, refuse and recycling stores, secure cycle parking and communal landscaped amenity space. UPDATE 31 JULY - Refused - out of keeping with the character of the area.
Following refusal by Committee, minimal revisions have been made to the width of the building in order to respond to the reason for refusal.
Objections submitted for the last application still apply - this 3-storey proposed development is out of keeping with the surrounding area; overdevelopment and inappropriate for the site.
The parking arrangements are inadequate given the size and quantity of the flats proposed in this location. All 6 flats have been enlarged and are for family accommodation where it is likely that more than 1 car will be the norm, especially in this location. There is no parking provision for visitors and there is only one space for deliveries, if it is not taken up by overflow parking. There is nowhere to safely park in surrounding roads and parking on Hollymeoak Road itself would be dangerous to other road users on this busy, commuting cut-through. Accessibility is poor in this area with no pavements for pedestrians and no cycle paths.
There is an adverse impact upon existing trees on the site.
