15/00004/FULRefusal – Full


Delegated Decision

Mr & Mrs MackintoshBrightlingsea Town Council recommended approval.Proposed detached garage and log store.19 Maltings RoadBrightlingsea
01        The National Planning Policy Framework attaches great importance to the design of the built environment and confirms good design is a key aspect of sustainable development, is indivisible from good planning, and should contribute positively to making places better for people. It states that planning should always seek to secure high quality design and a good standard of amenity for all existing and future occupants of land and buildings.Saved Policies QL9, QL10 and QL11 of the adopted Tendring District Local Plan (2007), and Policy SD9 of the Tendring District Local Plan Proposed Submission Draft (2012) as amended by the Tendring District Local Plan: Pre-Submission Focussed Changes (2014) seek to ensure that all new development makes a positive contribution to the quality of the local environment and should protect or enhance local character.

Despite some variants, the front boundaries of Maltings Road and St Andrews Place are predominantly open or enclosed by low level walls and planting contributing to the spacious character of the area. There are no other examples of front garages or buildings.

The proposed garage and log store, by virtue of its siting forward of the dwelling on this prominent corner plot will result in an incongruous form of development within the street scene, detrimental to visual amenity and the overall character of the area contrary to the aforementioned national and local policies.
