New Planning Applications November 2017

Date 18/12/17 Ref No. PP-06458304 Case No. 17/02637/FUL
Location Everyman Winchester, Southgate Street, SO23 9EF.
Proposal 2 No. APNR cameras, 3 No. Bollards on the entrance and 4 No. sign-poles to be installed (3 in parking area and 1 for main) (Mr Farooq).
Comments While sympathising with the need to enforce customer parking controls by measures of this sort, the Trust felt that it was not necessary to erect 9 large signs in such as small car park. We considered 2 signs would be ample. We also questioned whether any further public car parking should be permitted so close to the city centre before the movement strategy has been published. The Trust therefore OBJECTED

Date 01/12/17 Ref No. PP-06564700 Case No. 17/03024/HOU
Location 31 Hillside Road, SO22 5NW.
Proposal Single and two-storey extension to dwelling (Mr & Mrs Rob Ainsworth).
Comments The Trust felt that removal of the hipped roof to the garage and the insertion of a large flat-roofed extension on the first floor destroy would destroy the currently coherent design. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 22/12/17 Ref No. PP-06567204 Case No. 17/03036/HOU
Location 57 Parchment Street, SO23 8BA.
Proposal Demolition of an existing rear extension & construction of a new rear extension. Replacement of existing windows to front elevation (Mr Jowitt).
Comments The Trust welcomed the replacement of the front windows but objected to the proposal to create 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor on the ground that this requires an extension which is too bulky and overbearing for this modest row of dwellings. The Trust therefore OBJECTED .

Date 20/12/17 Ref No. PP-06622336 Case No. 17/03208/HOU
Location 1 Wessex Drive, SO22 6DQ.
Proposal Single storey rear and two storey side extension (amended scheme to 16/03130/HOU) (Mr Andrew Jackson).
Comments The Trust objected to 16/03130/HOU on the grounds that it would be incongruous and unsympathetic to this semi-detached house, and that the relation of the hanging box to the roofline is clumsy and unacceptable in design terms; we found the same problems with the amended scheme. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 04/04/17 Ref No. PP-05896699 Case No. 17/00923/FUL
Location Chilcomb St Swithun, Stratton Road, SO23 0JQ.
Proposal Chilcomb St Swithun and Stratton House; Substantial demolition of existing building (with retention of the northern fašade fronting Stratton Road) to facilitate the redevelopment of Stratton House / Chilcomb St Swithun to form: 2 x 3 bedroom maisonettes & 4 x 2 bedroom flats with associated car & cycle parking, refuse storage &access from Stratton Road. Construction of 2 x 4 bedroom detached dwelling houses on land to the west of Stratton House / Chilcomb St Swithun, with associated car & cycle parking, refuse storage & access from Stratton Road (Millgate (Winchester) Ltd.) (Amended plans & description 09/01/18).
Comments The Trust had objected to the unamended version of this application on the grounds that it would constitute excessive development and be wholly unsympathetic to its surroundings. After consideration of the amended plans we agreed with many of the neighbours that the design, scale and distribution of three large dwellings on this site would be detrimental to the character of the neighbourhood. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 11/12/17 Ref No. PP-06593248 Case No. 17/03112/LDP
Location 87 Greenhill Road, SO22 5EA.
Proposal Loft conversion (Mr Nirina Macartney Rehan Rehman).
Comments The Trust felt that integrity of this building and terrace would be adversely compromised by the proposed large dormer/roof extension. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 11/12/17 Ref No. PP-06596277 Case No. 17/03119/FUL
Location 5 Bradley Peak, SO22 5NL.
Proposal Construction of a 3-bedroom dwelling and associated works (Mr Lionel Goodchild).
Comments The Trust said that the spatial quality of Teg Down is compromised by any erosion of garden spaces and the setting of such precedents should be avoided. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 18/12/17 Ref No. PP-06592701 Case No. 17/03178/FUL
Location 9-11 High Street, SO23 9JX.
Proposal Demolition and replacement of the existing facades on both the High Street and Market Lane frontages. Change of use of the first and second floor retail and roof void areas into 62 bedroom hotel (Mr James Tibbles).
Comments The Trust were content in principle with the proposal to redevelop this site as a budget hotel, with 3 ground floor retail units. We also thought acceptable to build a hotel without additional parking, given the city centre location. We felt the proposed High Street frontage acceptable but rather unexciting. Our objection concerned the proposed Market Street elevation, which includes the main hotel entrance, since we felt that the opportunity has been missed to make a more significant and imaginative proposal to improve the character and appearance of the street. The Trust therefore OBJECTED.

Date 21/12/17 Ref No. PP-06625000 Case No. 17/03223/FUL
Location Aldi Foodstore Ltd, 2 Burnett Close, SO22 5JQ.
Proposal Removal of minor landscaping areas to create 8 additional car parking spaces (Mr Rob Jones).
Comments The Trust OBJECTED on the grounds that the landscaping as required by the original planning consent should be fully maintained for both environmental reasons and respect for the character of the wider area.
