|Conditions / Reason for Refusal:
The Council considers that the proposed front extension would form an incongruous feature that would be out of keeping with the existing dwelling and the streetscene. As such the proposal is contrary to Local Plan Policies CS28 ‘Sustainable Design’ and SP55 ‘Design Principles’ and to the adopted Supplementary Planning Document - ‘Householder Design Guide,’ as well as to the guidance in the National Planning Policy Framework.
POSITIVE AND PROACTIVE STATEMENT
The applicant did not enter into any pre application discussions with the Local Planning Authority. Discussions during the determination of the application have identified that it is not possible to support a scheme of this nature nor would any amendments make it acceptable. It was not considered to be in accordance with the principles of the National Planning Policy Framework and resulted in this refusal.
