The planning application is No: B2017/76180/FUL
Proposal: Erection of two 5 – bedroomed, four 4 – bedroomed and two 3 – bedroomed two storey houses with roof accommodation together with 18 car parking spaces, vehicular access from Woodend and associated landscaping. Provision of open space and allotment plots.
Applicant: Sutton Gardens LLP
It can be seen on the Council’s planning register at: https://fastweb.sutton.gov.uk/FASTWEB/detail.asp?AltRef=B2017/76180
This area of land is part of Sutton Garden Suburb.
There has been a history of planning applications for this site, which have been refused. The most recent, by the same applicant, was early last year. This application differs from the earlier one in a number of respects, mainly that:
However the design of the individual detached houses is as before, each with a bedroom in the roof, as have the 4 bed semi-detached houses.
The site is within a Conservation Area and is designated y
by the Council as an Urban Green Space. As such, development for housing would not be permitted unless the developer demonstrated it provided sufficient benefit for the community to outweigh these planning policies.
Last year’s application was recommended for refusal by planning officers on the grounds of:
Your ward councillors have de-delegated the application, which means that it will have to be decided by the Planning Committee rather than by officers. We will delegate this decision back to officers if they indicate that they would recommend the application is rejected.
The next meetings of the Planning Committee are on 22 Feb, 15 and 29 March. Any comments need to be received by the planning department by 10 February.
