New Planning Applications February 2019

Date 15/11/18 Ref No. PP-07421628 Case No. 18/02628/FUL
Location Bishop On The Bridge, 1 High Street, SO23 9JX.
Proposal External alterations to the beer garden including a pergola, outbuildings, a bavona structure and associated works.
Comments We thought that there was insufficient information about access for bins and deliveries. There were no elevations to show how the proposals would impact on the Colebrook Street frontage. There were not details about critical issues such as heating and insulation of the "Bavona" structure (retractable pergola). The Trust therefore OBJECTED

Date 15/11/19 Ref No. PP-07421628 Case No. 18/02628/FUL
Location 15 St Swithun Street, SO23 9JP.
Proposal Rear facing dormer, rear bi-folding doors, 1 new roof-light to front elevation (resubmission) (Mr & Mrs Cox).
Comments Overall it was not thought that the changes were sufficient to justify a revised opinion. The Trust OBJECTED on the grounds that the dormer was too large and not sympathetic to the scale and character of the house.

Date 18/10/18 Ref No. Case No. 18/02436/HOU
Location 85 Westman Road, SO22 6DX.
Proposal Proposed construction of front garden wall and entrance gates (Part Retrospective) .
Comments The Trust agreed with the Highways Engineer that it is not acceptable for the gates to open onto the street. A site visit confirmed that the half-built wall looks inappropriate and out of place. The Trust therefore OBJECTED

Date 11/12/18 Ref No. PP-07484220 Case No. 18/02836/AVC
Location Southgate Corner, 65 High Street, SO23 9BX.
Proposal Proposal for new signs and decoration to shop front fascia.
Comments The Trust therefore OBJECTED strongly to the erection of hanging signs at first floor level in this location. Southgate Corner is a prominent building and the elegance of the curved brickwork and the ornate window cases would be severely compromised by such signs.

Date 12/12/18 Ref No. PP-07351148 Case No. 18/02853/FUL
Location 44 Fromond Road, SO22 6EG.
Proposal 44 Fromond Road is a WCC licenced 6-bed HMO. This application is for the property to become a Sui Generis 8-bedroom HMO.
Comments The property will not be physically extended. The property already has 8 bedrooms. No information was been presented to support this application which appears to propose an extreme intensification of use for a small dwelling. We noted that a fuller location plan would show semi detached houses in generous garden settings. The current proposal would remove the garden setting of No 140, which is an essential aspect of the design of the Stanmore Estate, and would overcrowd the site with an intrusive and uncharacteristic terrace. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 14/12/18 Ref No. PP-07364637 Case No. 18/02871/FUL
Location 140 Stanmore Lane, SO22 4DP.
Proposal Erection of two 3-bed dwellings and one 2-bed dwelling in the curtilage of 140 Stanmore Lane.
Comments We noted that a fuller location plan would show semidetached houses in generous garden settings. The current proposal would remove the garden setting of No 140, which is an essential aspect of the design of the Stanmore Estate, and would overcrowd the site with an intrusive and uncharacteristic terrace. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 31/12/18 Ref No. PP-07510044 Case No. 18/02931/HOU
Location 2 West End Close, SO22 5EW.
Proposal Single storey front and rear extensions; two storey side extension; dormer and loft conversion and internal alterations.
Comments The proposal is for a major increase in the size of this dwelling, which at the side extends to the full width of the plot, and the impact on the street scene would be considerable. The large front porch would currently be somewhat screened by existing vegetation, but it does not seem that this would necessarily survive the construction of the project. The proposed large dormer on the street elevation would have an unacceptable visual impact. The Trust therefore OBJECTED

Date 21/12/18 Ref No. PP-07495211 Case No. 18/02917/FUL
Location Land Adjacent Stanmore Primary School, Stanmore Lane, SO22 4AJ.
Proposal Redevelopment of the site: Construct 5 No. detached houses (1 x 4 bed, 2 x 3 bed (each with detached single garage) and 2 x 2 bed) and 4 x 2 bed apartments, associated means of enclosure, surface car parking and new access spur. Resurfacing of access from Stanmore Lane to new access spur, including construction of passing bay and school delivery bay by adjustment of eastern boundary to Stanmore Primary School. Erection of 3m high acoustic fence to part of common boundary with adjoining electricity sub-station (Mr Bikram Banarjee).
Comments This proposal already has outline planning permission. We had no objection to the use of the site, but noted that the proximity of the electricity substation and the narrow access do create challenges. Our principal concerns were with the very ordinary design of the houses and apartments proposed and with patchwork effect of 5 small detached houses plus 2 detached single garages, in addition to an apartment block. We did not think it appropriate to create 2 bedroom detached houses and noted that from the point of view of energy efficiency, it is desirable to minimize the amount of external wall. We thought the opportunity should be taken to create a much more interesting, imaginative and space efficient development. The Trust therefore OBJECTED
