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 despite pre-apps and discussions
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, 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.
