Decision: Refuse Planning Permission/Consent
Decision date: 07 Mar 2012
Conditions and reasons:


The loss of this historic public house to residential use would be damaging to the value and significance of this heritage asset, and would cause harm to the character, identity and distinctiveness of the conservation area. Therefore, the proposal would fail to meet the requirements of Planning Policy Statement 5, Core Strategy policies C05, CK1, CL1 and CL3 and 'Conservation Principles, Policies and Guidance for the Sustainable Management of the Historic Environment' published by English Heritage (2008).


In the absence of a satisfactory s106 agreement to secure necessary planning obligations, the proposal would result in unacceptable pressure on local infrastructure (including education, health and community facilities) and would therefore be contrary to policy C1 of the Core Strategy and the Planning Obligations Supplementary Planning Document.


In the absence of a satisfactory s106 agreement to secure ineligibility from obtaining car parking permits, the proposed development would put undue pressure on on-street car parking and would therefore be contrary to policy CT1 (c) of the Core Strategy and the Transport Supplementary Planning Document.



Relevant Policies Used
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 Spatial Development Strategy for Greater London adopted July 2011; the Core Strategy adopted 8 December 2010 and the 'Saved' policies of the Unitary Development Plan adopted 25 May 2002.


The applicant is advised that completion of a satisfactory s106 agreement would overcome the second and third reasons for refusal listed above.
