Retrospective erection of rear and side extension including terrace on the rear extension.

 

As per the Protocol for Public Speaking, written statements from the following people were received and read out by the Democratic Services Officer:

 

 Ø   IN OBJECTION -

Jo Tasker

 Ø   IN SUPPORT -

Jonathan Blackmore.

 

 Ø    WARD COUNCILLOR –

None.

 

RESOLVED that the application be refused Planning Permission. The reason being that the use of the proposed first-floor terrace would give rise to overlooking and loss of privacy in the rear gardens of numbers 13 and 17 Vale Road, which would be materially harmful to the amenities of their occupiers. The proposed screening to the terrace would in addition be overbearing and give rise to a material loss of light and outlook to the occupiers of 13 Vale Road, most particularly in respect of the kitchen window in the side (west) elevation of 13 Vale Road. The proposals would therefore be contrary to the provisions of Policy PP27 of the Poole Local Plan (November 2018).
