Plans to create an extension to a café to provide two new flats in Brightlingsea have been turned down by Tendring District Council.
Durnius Aslan put forward the scheme for 22 Victoria Place within the town’s Conservation Area. The proposal involved adding first and second storey extensions over the existing flat roof of the building to create the three-bedroom properties. It also included some internal alterations to the café.
Tendring District Council rejected the application as it failed to provide off-street parking facilities to meet current standards and would lead to extra vehicles being left on the highway. The scheme also did not allow for any private amenity space, outside storage or clothes drying areas.
Brightlingsea Town Council did not object to the plans but felt they should at least be put before TDC’s Planning Committee for a decision due to the fact the property was in the Conservation Area. Tendring also received four letters of objection from residents who were concerned about parking, loss of privacy and the lack of amenity space.
