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

·       IN OBJECTION

 

v  None.

 

·       IN SUPPORT

RESOLVED that the application be refused planning permission, contrary to the recommendation set out in the report, for the following reason/s:

 

The proposed balcony, by reason of its siting and design, would have an unacceptable impact on the living conditions of neighbouring properties by reason of overlooking and a loss of privacy.  The proposal therefore fails to comply with the test in Policy PP27 1 (c) of  the Poole Local Plan (2018) to be compatible with surrounding uses and would result in a harmful impact upon amenity for local residents when considering privacy.

 

Voting:

 

For –  9                Against – 3          Abstentions – 1

 

NOTE: A previous vote to grant, as per the officer’s recommendation, was defeated.
