Planning Applications Updates Apr 2019

Date 22/01/19 Ref No. Case No. 19/00207/FUL
Location 2 Ruffield Close, SO22 5JL
Proposal Removal of condition 11 to allow rear dormer and conversion of roof space (18/00853/FUL, determined as permitted 30.05.2018) (Acorn Design & Project Management Ltd).
Comments The Trust could not see what justification there could be for removing this condition within 9 months of its imposition. This application was Allowed.

Date 30/01/19 Ref No. PP- 07573825 Case No. 19/00210/HOU
Location 10 Pinehurst Place, Bereweeke Road, SO22 6AN
Proposal Installation of a green powder coated wire mesh security fence along the property boundary above the existing wall along Bereweeke Road and turning the corner to the side access road to Winchester Racquets and Fitness centre (Mr & Mrs Suzanna Heape).
Comments The Trust could not understand the need for this additional security fence as it would detract from a fine character wall within the neighbourhood. There is dense shrubbery already. This application was Refused on the grounds that the fence, in its location and prominence, would be detrimental to the setting, character and appearance of the surrounding area .

Date 21/01/19 Ref No. PP- 07513184 Case No. 18/02924/HOU
Location 3 Francis Gardens, SO23 7HD
Proposal A proposed side extension and rear amendments to the ground floor (Mr Olly Hall).
Comments The Trust objected because of the negative impact we thought it woud have on the street scene. This application was Allowed.

Date 14/01/19 Ref No. PP- 07542851 Case No. 19/00083/FUL
Location 132 Stockbridge Road, SO22 6RN
Proposal Condition Number: 7 Condition Removal: use of garden space for business 12-20:00 Monday -Saturday (Application Reference Number: W11026/05 Date of Decision: 03/09/2014) (Mr J Whaley).
Comments The Trust felt that was hard to see how use of the garden in the evenings could not fail to disrupt the users of the many adjoining gardens. The fencing proposed, if high enough to prevent noise disruption, would present a forbidding boundary to neighbouring gardens. As far as we could ascertain the need for amenity protection is unchanged. This application has been Withdrawn.

Date 21/12/18 Ref No. PP- 07495211 Case No. 18/02917/FUL
Location Land Adjacent to Stanmore Primary School, Stanmore Lane, SO22 4AJ
Proposal 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. . Erection of 3m high acoustic fence to part of common boundary with adjoining electricity sub-station.
Comments The Trust had objected to the layout and design (the insistence on detached houses) which we thought made very inefficient use of available land and led to a fragmented development of very ordinary houses. This application was Allowed.

Date 12/12/18 Ref No. PP - 07351148 Case No. 18/02853/FUL
Location 44 Fromond Road, SO22 6EG
Proposal 7 Bedroom HMO at 44 Fromond Road.
CommentsThe Trust had objected on grounds of insufficient information and that the increase in adult occupants would result in an over intensive use of the site. WCC agreed with the latter saying that it would be to the detriment of the character of the area and would result in a significantly harmful impact on amenity in terms of noise and disruption to the neighbouring properties in C3 use. This application was Refused.

Date 13/12/18 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 This application was Allowed after submission of modified plans. The Trust had objected to the height of the wall (subsequently lowered) and to the proposal to have electronically operated metal gates opening outward (to which highways also objected). The gates are now wooden and open inwards, with a condition attached to the approval to ensure that they do.
