Ward Councillors

v  None registered

 

RESOLVED to REFUSE planning permission contrary to the recommendation set out in the Officer’s report for the following reasons:

 

·       Overdevelopment of the site due to the extent of the development the proximity of the buildings, the extent of site coverage and the negative impact on the character and appearance of the area which would therefore be contrary to Policies PP27 and PP28 of the Poole Local Plan 2018.

 

·       The proposed dwellings, due to their proximity and orientation to the surrounding residential properties, would result in an overbearing relationship with unacceptable levels of overlooking and loss of privacy, particularly to those dwellings along Earlham Drive. The proposal is therefore contrary to Policies PP27 of the Poole Local Plan 2018 in that it would result in a harmful impact upon the amenity of neighbouring residents.
