Planning Applications Updates Dec 2018

Date 16/07/18 Ref No. PP-07134542 Case No. 18/01727/HOU
Location30 Quarry Road , SO23 0JG
ProposalConstruction of two storey side extension with double height stair link.
Comments The Trust did not feel that the proposals were sympathetic to the original character of the house, although the plans submitted were not very clear. Subsequent plans were submitted from which is is clear that the character of the house is not fully preserved given the addition of modern fenestration but the result is not unattractive. This application was Allowed.

Date 12/09/18 Ref No. PP-07222349 Case No. 18/02072/HOU
Location 15 St Swithun Street, SO23 9JP
Proposal Rear facing dormer, rear bi-folding doors, one new rooflight to front elevation (Mr & Mrs Cox).
Comments The Trust objected to the rear facing dormer which is very large and out of keeping with the rest of the house. The bifold doors also seemed clumsy and out of keeping with the scale and character of the house. Tis application was Refused because proposed roof dormer by virtue of its design, scale and resultant roof form would be out of character with, and visually dominate, the existing dwelling in a conservation area.

Date 18/10/18 Ref No. PP-07322802 Case No. 18/02442/AVC
Location Land East Of Station Road, SO23 8TJ
Proposal Material to market and provide information for a proposed development at Station Approach as follows: 1x information board approximately 3mx4m (height x width) sited adjacent to the junction of Gladstone Street and Station Road. 2x information boards approximately 2.5mx6m (height x width) attached to the old registry office. The material shown on each will be changed periodically.
CommentsAfter negotiation with the case officer and re-consultation with the Chair of the objecting panel and one other PAG chair it was agreed that there would be no banners on the old Registry Office and that free-standing boards of suitably sympathetic materials would be used instead. It was also reluctantly conceded that boards could be placed at the junction with Gladstone Street. Hoardings will be used once construction starts but WCC made the application because they think it important to market the site actively before this stage is reached, so they can have discussions with potential tenants on internal layout requirements at the design stage. This does suggest some nervousness about the demand for office space.
