This case has not yet been decided.
The application fails to demonstrate that the proposals would preserve the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building contrary to the NPPF and development plan policy, in particular Consolidated Local Plan policy CL4.
The application has failed to demonstrate that the proposed additional storey would preserve living conditions within neighbouring properties at acceptable levels, in particular with regard to privacy, natural light, sense of enclosure and light emission. As such, the development would be contrary to policies of the development plan, in particular CL5.
Refused despite pre-apps and discussionsTo 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, and improvements recommended during assessment of the application. 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.
Unique textFlat 2 occupies part of the main building at 170 Holland Park Avenue; however the red line on the location plan only surrounds the 1980s extension. The site plan therefore does not meet the statutory requirements: 'The application site should be clearly edged with a red line on the location plan. It should include all land necesssary to carry out the proposed development (e.g land requireed for access to the site from a public highway,visiblity splays, landscaping, car parking and open areas around buildings). A blue line should be drawn around any other land owned by the applicant, close to or adjoining the application site.'
