Decision: Refuse Planning Permission/Consent
Decision date: 14 Dec 2016
Conditions and reasons:


The proposal would result in the net loss of social rented housing and fails to demonstrate that the maximum reasonable amount of affordable housing is being provided. The proposals are contrary to policies in the London Plan 2015 , in particular, Policy 3.14 and the Local Plan, in particular, Policies CH3 and CH4


The architecture of the proposed buildings would be of insufficient high design quality and would fail to contribute positively to the surrounding townscape. The proposals are contrary to policies in the London Plan 2015 , in particular, policy 7.6 and policies in the Local Plan , in particular, Policies CL1 and CL2


The proposed development , in the absence of a Legal Agreement to secure affordable housing to the meet the Council's housing needs, and appropriate provision for infrastructure that directly relates to the development, would fail to adequately mitigate the impact of the development on the wider area and provide for the necessary social and physical infrastructure improvements arising directly from the development. Therefore, the proposal would be contrary to policies in the London Plan 2015 in particular policies 3.12 and 6.1 and policies in the Local Plan , in particular policies C1, CH2 and CH4


Refused despite pre-app advice
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, and offers a pre-application advice service. Pre-application advice was sought and provided. Unfortunately, this advice was not adhered to. Nevertheless, the Council is ready to enter into discussions with the applicants through the advice service to assist in the preparation of a new planning application.
