Decision details

This case has not yet been decided.

Decision: Refuse Permission/Consent and Enforce
Decision date: 08 Feb 2017
Conditions and reasons:


The shopfront alterations that have taken place without approval, due to the size of the openings, lack of shopfront, and the size and material of the shutters, give an unbalanced appearance to the property and a dead frontage that fails to preserve the character of the street or the wider conservation area and undermines the vitality and attractiveness of the area. The development is contrary to the guidelines set in the SPDs for Shopfronts and Designing Out Crime and is contrary to policies CL3, CL10 and CL11 of the Consolidated Local Plan 2015.



Policies of Particular Relevance
You are advised that this application was determined by the Local Planning authority with regard to Development Plan policies including relevant policies contained within the London Plan 2015 (Consolidated with Alterations since 2011); the Consolidated Local Plan 2015 and the 'Saved' policies of the Unitary Development Plan adopted 25 May 2002.


Refused/No pre-app or discussion
To assist applicants in finding solutions to problems arising in relation to their development proposals the Local Planning Authority has produced planning policies, and provided written guidance, all of which are available on the Council's website.
