5147  PLANNING APPLICATIONS

 

Application No.
Location and Description
12/02700 (Full)
11 London Road, Ascot, SL5 7EN

Change of use of a semi-detached house into 2×1 bedroom flats
Recommendation: No Objections provided that the parking issues could be resolved.

12/02754 (Full) 18 St Georges Lane, Ascot, SL5 9BN
Two storey, part single story side extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02800 (Full) Natures Nursery, Meridian House, London Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 0PL
Front entrance porch
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02804 (Full) Former Bardfield Place, Bagshot Road, Ascot
Detached outbuilding, swimming pool, re-siting of garages and ground floor changes. Amendments to Plot 3 of Planning Permission 12/00057/Full for the construction of three detached houses with new access and drive following demolition of existing house
Recommendation: No Objections, although the committee requested that the application be referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer to ensure that the proposed re-siting would not be detrimental to the tree root protection zone.
12/02827 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) 2 Geffers Ride, Ascot, SL5 7JY
T1 Oak tree in front garden, crown reduce lateral branches by 2m. T5 Beech in rear garden, crown thin by 10%, crown clear and deadwood.  T14 oak tree in rear garden, remove over extended dead scaffold on south side at 2.5m
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02854 (Full) Woodlands Lodge and Boxwood House, Heathfield Avenue, Ascot
Erection of 10 apartments plus basement parking, access and landscaping following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the application to be out of keeping with the area, which was characterized by detached homes, and therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment; as well as being damaging to the street scene.  The scale, massing and density proposed were considered to be an over-development of the site, contrary to policy H11, with the proportions being contrary to policy H10. Furthermore, the application was considered to be unsustainable in economic, social and environmental respects and therefore contrary to NPPF 7. The parking arrangements, with no visitor parking, and access for service vehicles were considered to be inadequate, with possible highway implications.  In addition, the committee considered the application to be contrary to NPPF 9 and 17, in that it did not meet local housing needs, did not reflect the character of the area, did not use land of lesser environmental value and was not located to make fullest possible use of public transport. The committee noted that an archaeological report was outstanding and therefore requested that the determination date only be set once this, and community consultation, had been carried out.  The committee also noted that the area was not one identified as being appropriate for apartments within the emerging Neighbourhood Plan.  
12/02858 (CERT) 1 Eldon Lodge, Carbery Lane, Ascot, SL5 7EJ
Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether an existing use of the garage as a residential annex is lawful.
No Recommendation Required:
12/02862 (Full) Land to the rear of and up to Carbery Lane at 19 London Road, Ascot
Change of use of buildings from 7 bedsits to a single residential dwelling together with replacement detached garage to rear
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02907 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) 6 The Links, Ascot, SL5 7TN
Crown lift an Oak T2 by removing a low dead branch facing the house and a branch over the rear wall of the garden and encroaching on the neighbours garden.  Beech T3 remove 3 branches inter-twining with the Oak and Holly and 6 smaller branches that also inter-twine with the oak at between 2 and 4 metres from the ground
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02918 (Full) Courtway, Titness Park, London Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 0PS
Rear dormer extension. Rear extension to existing detached garage with new roof
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to Green Belt Requirements being met.
12/02939 (Full) 51 Lower Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AF
Part two part single storey rear extension.  Replacement of windows
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02966 (Full) 21 Course Road, Ascot, SL5 7HQ
Part two part single storey side and rear extension and porch.  Loft conversion with 2 front and a rear dormer
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the application to be an overdevelopment of the site which was out of keeping with the character of the area.  The proposed dormers would create a two and a half storey dwelling which would be harmful to the street scene along a stretch of road containing two storey dwellings.  Concerns were also raised about the removal of the adjacent right of way without prior consultation with neighbours.
12/02970 (Full)

 

31 Bowden Road Ascot SL5 9NJ

Single storey rear extension

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/02992 (Full) Land at St Cloud and Glebelands, Brockenhurst Road, Ascot

Recommendation: No Objections.
12/03037 (Full) 59 Geffers Ride, Ascot, SL5 7JZ
Two storey front extension. Part single storey part two storey front/side extension, conversion of existing garage to family room and demolition of existing conservatory replaced with single storey rear extension.
Recommendation: No Objections, although concern was expressed that, if approved, the proposed loss of the garage would set a precedent that would adversely affect a unifying feature of the street scene.

5124  DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST

5125  NEW APPLICATIONS                                                                                                                                          

Application No.
Location and Description
12/02511 (Full) Hunters Lodge and 1 and 2 Ascot Lodge, London Road, Ascot
Construction of 10 dwellings (comprising 3 detached, 2 semi detached, and a terrace of 3 dwellings), following demolition of existing 3 properties
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee welcomed three residents from Wellswood who raised objections to the application.  These objections coincided with those raised by the SPAE representative.  Although the committee recognised that attempts had been made to reduce the impact on neighbouring properties, this had resulted in ‘front loading’ the development which had resulted in an ‘urbanising’ effect.  The resultant overdevelopment of the site was therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment (which defined the area as one of ‘villas in a woodland setting’) and thus out of keeping with the character of the area. In addition, the loss of 6 category B trees was considered to be damaging to the street scene, further exacerbated by the proposed access road, which was considered to be inadequate for service vehicles.  Combined with the proposed parking arrangements, the committee raised concerns about highway safety implications and considered the proposal to be contrary to the NPPF.  The degree of sustainability was also questioned, as was the consideration of affordable housing on site. Furthermore, the potential loss of privacy and light for neighbouring properties, due to the proximity and design of the proposed plots, was considered harmful to neighbourhood amenity; as was the view from the south east of the site. Lastly, the committee were concerned that if this application were approved it would set an unwelcome precedent and did not mirror that of Wellswood.
12/02570 (Certificate of lawfulness) Mare’s Nest, 91 Cheapside Road Ascot SL5 7QG

Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether a proposed two storey and first floor rear

extension and a single storey side extension are lawful

No Recommendation Required: The committee questioned whether planning permission should be sought for such an extensive proposal.
   
12/02602 (Full) Woodleigh, Watersplash Lane, Ascot, SL5 7QP
Single storey timber outbuilding to replace existing shed
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to Green Belt requirements being met.
12/02617 (Full) 61 Victoria Road, Ascot, SL5 9DE
Rear conservatory
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02637 (Full) Four Seasons, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JL

12/02653 (Full) 21 Sutherland Chase, Ascot SL5 8TE

Construction of a replacement house

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/02658 (Full) 8 Onslow Drive, Ascot, SL5 7UL
Two storey front extension.  Two front dormers and roof amendments to facilitate loft conversion
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02662 (Full) 12 Lockton Chase, Ascot, SL5 8TP
Two storey side extension and open front porch with pitched roof
Recommendation: Objections.  The garage proposed at 2.5m wide is below the Borough’s width standard and would result in a loss of a parking space.  The committee also sought re-assurance that there would be no breach of the 45 degree rule.
12/02665 (Full) 2 Carden Mews, Kennel Ride, Ascot, SL5 7PJ
Conversion of garage into habitable accommodation
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to a condition that adequate sound insulation be included in the conversion so that the current use of the adjacent garage could continue.
12/02678 (Full) 48 Highgrove Avenue, Ascot, SL5 7HR
Two storey side extension.  Existing rear conservatory changed to form an orangery
Recommendation: No Objections as the committee considered this to be a duplicate of an approved application (12/02158), as it failed to make clear the differences.
12/02702 (Full) 59 Hurstwood, Ascot, SL5 9SP
First floor side and single storey rear and side extensions
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02722 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Wells House, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY
Trim back and shape branches overhanging Bluebell Wood up to a height of 2m on Leylandii trees at Wells House
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02758 (Full) 9 St Georges Lane, Ascot, SL5 9BL
Single storey rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02768 (Full) Fircroft, 13 Woodlands Ride, Ascot, SL5 9HP
Two storey front bay extension. New front porch. Single storey rear extension.  Alterations to main roof to infill.  Pitched roofs over existing front bay windows.  Two front entrance gates.

Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02791 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Apartment 11, Brockenhurst House, Brockenhurst Road, Ascot, SL5 9FW
Fell a Horse Chestnut (1) Remove deadwood from 2 Conifers (2+3) Prune back 4 Conifers (4A-D) to within 0.5 metres of boundary fence.  Raise crown of an unidentified tree (5) 8-10 metres and reduce overall by 30%.  Remove deadwood from an Oak tree (6)
Recommendation: Strong Objections.  The committee expressed concern that an increasing number of applications to fell protected trees were being received following the building of new developments close to trees , rather than for sound arboricultural reasons.  The original application for Apartment 11 had been approved subject to no tree loss.  The committee asked that the application be referred to the Borough’s tree officer and that it be called into the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02796 (Full) 34 Llanvair Drive, Ascot, SL5 9HT
Two storey part single storey side extension and conversion of existing room into garage
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02810 (Full) 17 Dorian Drive, Ascot, SL5 7QL
Single storey part two storey side extension
Recommendation: Objections on the grounds of loss of parking space due to the unique position of this property within the street. The committee requested that the Borough obtain a parking plan for the application, prior to determination, and that this plan be made available on the planning portal website.
12/02814 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) The Laurels, 9 Holmes Close, Ascot, SL5 9TJ
Crown reduce a Sweet Chestnut (T1) by 25%

 5086  PLANNING APPLICATIONS

 

Application No.
Location and Description
12/01732 (Amendment)
Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, SL5 7DY

Construction of 12 flats, with basement parking and cycle store, detached refuse store, new entrance gates, landscaping and additional parking, following demolition of existing dwelling
Recommendation
: Objections.  The committee considered the reasons for refusing the original application still applied, as set out in the attached statement below.  Furthermore, the proposal was not considered to be sustainable and therefore the presumption in favour of development should not apply.  Concern about the impact on the tree root protection zone and the tree canopy were also expressed.

12/02212 (Full) Little Queens Beeches, London Road, Ascot, SL5 7EQ
Single storey rear/side extension, additional parking area and rear terrace
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02235 (Full) The Marist Schools, Kings Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 7PS
Construction of a sports hall with ancillary accommodation
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered the proposal to be contrary to policy GB2 as it was an intensification of use within the Green Belt.  Furthermore, the height and scale of the building, potential light pollution, tree loss and traffic movement would adversely affect neighbourhood amenity.  If the Borough were minded to approve the application, the committee requested that conditions be imposed for the whole site regarding opening times, screening and floodlight usage outside of school hours.
12/02256 (Full) 7 Hurstwood, Ascot, SL5 9SP
Two storey side extension following demolition of existing family room
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02274 (Full) 59 Gainsborough Drive, Ascot, SL5 8TA
Two storey, part first floor front extension
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered the proposal to be contrary to policy H14 as it was damaging to the street scene.  The properties within this stretch of Gainsborough Drive were built with symmetrical sloping roofs which have not been altered. This application would result in cutting into the roof which would set an unwelcome precedent.  The proximity of the two storey extension was considered to be too close to the boundary, at less than 1metre, and would create a terracing effect.  Furthermore, the loss of light would be unneighbourly and the proposed guttering could be contrary to building regulations.  The committee requested that the application be bought to the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02280 (Full) Chesham House, Coronation Road, Ascot, SL5 9LG
Erection of two dwellings and provision of a new access to Coronation Road, following demolition of the existing dwelling
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be ‘backland’ development and of a significantly greater scale than the neighbouring properties development.  Concerns were also expressed regarding the tree root protection zone, the impact on the street scene, as the entire footprint would be moved forward, and that the proposed drive would cause inconvenience to the neighbours.   The committee requested that the application be bought to the Development Control Panel, should the Borough be minded to approve it.
12/02288 (Advertisement) Chartered Institute of Building Offices, Englemere House, Englemere Estate, Kings Ride, Ascot, SL5 7TB
Consent to replace entrance signs with 2x non illuminated 3-sided triangular signs
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02304 (Full) Hazeldene, St Marys Hill, Ascot, SL5 9AP
Front porch extension.  Convert existing conservatory into a garden room, with new tiled roof, side wall, windows and doors
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02309 (Certificate of Lawfulness) 11 The Poplars, Ascot, SL5 9HZ
Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether a proposed single storey side extension is lawful.
No Recommendation Required.
12/02321 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Ladye Place, London Road, Ascot, SL5 7EG
T1 Common Lime tree, reduce by 30% and reshape
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer.
12/02334 (Full) 34 Armitage Court, Ascot, SL5 9TA
Single storey front extensions, conversion of part garage and erection of new garden wall following demolition of existing
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/02354 (Certificate of Lawfulness) Blanton House, Kennel Avenue, Ascot, SL5 7PB
Certificate of Lawfulness of proposed development to determine whether a proposed roof replacement with lanterns is lawful
No Recommendation Required.
12/02355 (Full) Bramley Cottage, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Construction of a detached house with second floor accommodation and a detached double garage with first floor storage over, following the demolition of the existing house and garage.  New entrance gate and walls
Recommendation: Objections.  The garage was considered to be too high and wrongly located.  The proposed  garage would adversely affect the street scene, as would the white rendered perimeter wall, and was too close to the tree canopy.
12/02359 (Full) Wine Rack, 55 High Street, Ascot, SL5 7HP
Change of use from Wine Shop (A1) to Wine/Cocktail bar (A4), including new shop front.
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to a specific floor area being set aside for retail use.
12/02392 (Full) Halstead House, Upper Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AG
2x 4 bed dwellings with associated landscaping and car parking
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that the same grounds for objection to application 12/01441 still existed as the changes contained were not significant.  The proposal therefore still considered to be an overdevelopment of the site and would thus have an adverse affect on the street scene.  Plot 2 was considered to be too close to 2 Lower Village Road and Plot 1 could possibly overlook 22 Oriental Road and would therefore be unneighbourly.  Furthermore, concerns about the impact on the tree root protection zone of plot 2 and tree canopy were raised.

5091  OTHER BUSINESS
The proposed LapLand UK application in  Swinley Forest was discussed. The extended consultation period was noted and Parish Councillors were asked to inform residents of this.

Councillor Peter Deason expressed concern about the Government’s proposed relaxation of planning conditions relating to household and retail permissions, which he considered to be contrary to the Localism agenda.  Councillor David Hilton agreed to write to the Member of Parliament for Windsor raising these concerns, which were shared by the Committee.

 There being no further business, the Chairman closed the meeting at 8.30pm

 ———————————————

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

 Attached Statement regarding 12/01732 – Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, Ascot

 

12/01732 (Full) Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY

Construction of 12 flats, with basement parking and cycle store. Detached refuse store, new

entrance gates, landscaping and additional parking, following demolition of existing dwelling

Recommendation: Strong Objections

 The Parish Council objects to the above application on the following grounds:

 1. The development is not in harmony with the character of the local area as defined in the borough’s Townscape Character Assessment, contrary to policy 58 of the NPPF and to the communities’ strong desire to retain the local character and its concerns regarding the increasing density of developments.  The density of development, at 43 homes per hectare compared with the current figure of 3.5/hectare reinforces the view that the development is out of character and of too high a density for its location.

The development adversely affects the street scene, reduces the green and leafy appearance and introduces an urbanising appearance, contrary to the community wishes.

 2. Trees

  • The trees along the Wells Lane frontage will need to be replaced.
  • The ramp to the basement conflicts with the RPA of an important tree on the western side.
  • There is no tree survey and no tree protection measures are proposed.

 3. Sustainability

The location of the development is not considered sustainable, contrary to the requirements of the NPPF policies 17, 30, 35 and 37.  Section 6.9 of the Design and Access statement claims the development is in a sustainable location with easy access to local facilities and amenities, and 4.6 of the D&A statement states that in the design there is an emphasis on pedestrian, mobility impaired, cycle and public transport over car travel.

These statements are clearly not correct as the station is 1.5km away, the nearest bus stop is 1.1 km away, the nearest convenience store is 0.8 km away and the nearest primary school is 1.3 km away. The committee further noted that there are no footways in Wells Lane, and no footpath on the south side of the London road. The development is therefore not sustainable for vulnerable pedestrians.

 4. The Design is considered flawed in the following respects:

The development does not accommodate the efficient delivery of goods and supplies, contrary to NPPF policy 35, or provide efficient, easy to access on-site parking, for residents, visitors or services. In particular, the Basement Parking is not viable or efficient as 4 spaces are “blocked in” and the end space is very difficult to access (amended layout, Pg 25 of D&A statement)

 5. SPA constraints

The SPA is still constraining local housing numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

Planning Minutes – Tuesday 31st July 2012

Minutes of a meeting of the Planning Committee held at the Ascot Day Centre, Bagshot Road, Sunninghill on
Tuesday 31 July 2012 commencing at 7.00pm.

Members Present: Councillors B Hilton (Chairman), C Lester (Vice-Chairman), M Duffield, R Ellison, J Yong

In attendance: Elizabeth Yates, Clerk to the Council and Peter Standley (SPAE)

5037  TO NOTE APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
Councillors Peter Deason, David Hilton and Daniel Whittall.

5038  MINUTES
The minutes of the meeting, held on 10 July, were approved as a correct record and signed as such.

5039  DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
The Chairman asked to receive any Declarations of Interest in accordance with the adopted Code of Conduct. None were given.

 5040  PLANNING APPLICATIONS 

Application No.
Location and Description
12/01715 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) West Burnside, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Reduce up to 4 lateral branches of a tree by no more than 3m to allow clearance for a satellite dish signal
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that there were no arboricultural reasons and this application should be rejected. Should the proposed Burnside development be approved it would seriously affect the amenity of immediate neighbours in Blythwood as their screening would be reduced.
12/01759 (Full) 85 Victoria Road, Ascot, SL5 9DR
Two storey part first floor rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01880 (Full) Silverwood, Whynstones Road, Ascot, SL5 9HW
Construction of detached dwelling with integral double garage and rooms in the roof space, following demolition of existing.
Recommendation: No Objections, provided that the Borough’s Tree Officer ensured that the root protection zone of the trees would not be adversely affected as the proposal would result in a larger footprint.
12/01888 (Full) Wetherby and Queenswood, Burleigh Lane, Ascot
Construction of two detached houses with garages following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: No Objections, provided that the conditions attached to the previous application, 11/02241, still applied.
12/01961 (Full) Derryville, Burleigh Lane, Ascot, SL5 8PF
Construction of a detached dwelling with integral triple garage with accommodation over, following demolition of existing
Recommendation: Objections. The committee considered the proposed dwelling to be excessive in bulk and scale.  Thus it would be damaging to the street scene and intrusive. As the proposal was a re-submission which moved the dwelling further toward a known badger set, the committee considered it essential that a report be obtained from the Borough’s retained ecological consultant.   If the Borough were minded to approve the application, the committee requested that it be called in to the Rural Development Control Panel.  
12/01965 (Full) Wine Rack, 55 High Street, Ascot, SL5 7HP
Change of use from Wine shop (A1) to Wine/ Cocktail bar (A4), including new shop front
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01972 (Full) CBS Business Equipment Limited, CBS Court, 118 Kennel Ride, Ascot, SL5 7NP
Conversion of existing offices to provide 4 x 2 bed maisonettes and 4 x 1 bed flats; works to include alterations, partial demolition of single storey extension, two storey extension and associated landscaping and parking
Recommendation: No Objections.
12/01984 (Full) 22-24 Cromwell Road, Ascot
Construction of a one detached house with integral garage and a pair of semi-detached dwellings with associated off road parking, access and landscaping following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: No Objections, although the committee requested that a demolition and construction statement be provided due to the nature of the road.
12/02000 (Full) 32 Llanvair Drive, Ascot, SL5 9HT
Alterations and extensions to include two storey side and single storey front side and rear extensions, raising of roof to provide loft accommodation with rear dormers and a side chimney
Recommendation: Concerns were expressed that the raising of the roof height by 1metre would affect the roof alignment of adjacent properties and therefore the symmetry of the street scene.  The committee requested that if the Borough were minded to approve the application, a condition be imposed that ensured the roof tiles harmonised with the adjacent properties in colour and material.
12/02002 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO) Helford House, Hancocks Mount, Ascot, SL5 9PQ
T1 Sycamore, crown reduce by 10-15% and up to 1.5m to balance crown
Recommendation: Referred to the Borough’s Tree Officer, provided sound arboricultural reasons were given.
12/02010 (Full)

 

Four Seasons, Bagshot Road, Ascot, SL5 9JL
Construction of two detached dwellings, both with detached double garages, following demolition of existing
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee considered that the reasons for refusal at appeal of the previous application, 01/08354, still applied, particularly as the proposal was for higher houses which would be more intrusive.  The proposal was considered to be harmful to the street scene, neighbourhood amenity and would create a terracing affect.  Therefore it would be contrary to the Townscape Assessment which defined the area as one of ‘villas in a woodland setting’. 
12/02014 (Full) 131 New Road, Ascot, SL5 8QA
Single storey side and rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
 

5041  PLANNING APPEALS
11/01807 West Burnside and Burnside, Burleigh Road, Ascot
Construction of seven detached dwellings and a new access road.

The Planning Inspectorate has informed us that a date and venue has been confirmed for the appeal.  The Hearing will take place at 10.00am on 18 September at Desborough Suite, Town Hall, Maidenhead.

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

Attached Statement regarding 12/01732 – Ascot Corner,Wells Lane,Ascot

 

12/01732 (Full) Ascot Corner, Wells Lane, Ascot, SL5 7DY

Construction of 12 flats, with basement parking and cycle store.  Detached refuse store, new entrance gates, landscaping and additional parking, following demolition of existing dwelling

Recommendation: Strong Objections – please see attached statement.

The Parish Council objects to the above application on the following grounds:

1.  The development is not in harmony with the character of the local area as defined in the borough’s Townscape Character Assessment, contrary to policy 58 of the NPPF and to the communities’ strong desire to retain the local character and its concerns regarding the increasing density of developments.

 The density of development, at 43 homes per hectare compared with the current figure of 3.5/hectare reinforces the view that the development is out of character and of too high a density for its location.

The development adversely affects the street scene, reduces the green and leafy appearance and introduces an urbanising appearance, contrary to the community wishes.

 2.  Trees

  • The trees along theWells Lanefrontage will need to be replaced.
  • The ramp to the basement conflicts with the RPA of an important tree on the western side.
  • There is no tree survey and no tree protection measures are proposed.

 3.  Sustainability

The location of the development is not considered sustainable, contrary to the requirements of the NPPF policies 17, 30, 35 and 37.

Section 6.9 of the Design and Access statement claims the development is in a sustainable location with easy access to local facilities and amenities, and 4.6 of the D&A statement states that in the design there is an emphasis on pedestrian, mobility impaired, cycle and public transport over car travel.

These statements are clearly not correct as the station is 1.5km away, the nearest bus stop is 1.1 km away, the nearest convenience store is 0.8 km away and the nearest primary school is 1.3 km away. The committee further noted that there are no footways inWells Lane, and no footpath on the south side of theLondon road. The development is therefore not sustainable for vulnerable pedestrians.

4.  The Design is considered flawed in the following respects:

The development does not accommodate the efficient delivery of goods and supplies, contrary to NPPF policy 35, or provide efficient, easy to access on-site parking, for residents, visitors or services. In particular, the BasementParkingis not viable or efficient as 4 spaces are “blocked in” and the end space is very difficult to access (amended layout, Pg 25 of D&A statement)

 5. SPA constraints

The SPA is still constraining local housing numbers.

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01441 (Full)
Halstead House, Upper Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AG
2 x 4 bed dwellings with associated landscaping and car parking
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be an overdevelopment of the site and would therefore have an adverse affect on the street scene.  Plot 2 was considered to be too close to 2 Lower Village Road and Plot 1 could possibly overlook 22 Oriental Road and would therefore be unneighbourly. 

12/01433 (Outline)
Land at 53 and 53 Cheapside Road, Ascot

Recommendation: No Objections.

12/ 01434 (Full)

12/01443 (Works to trees Covered by TPO)
Bramley Cottage, Burleigh Road, Ascot, SL5 7LE
Beech T1, lift to provide 5.2m clearance over road and driveway and deadwood
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee were concerned that the proposed 5.2m clearance was too high and that the Borough’s Tree Officer needed to be satisfied that there were sound arboricultural reasons.

12/01460 (Full)
10 Spring Gardens, Ascot, SL5 9DQ
Part two storey, part single storey side and rear extension.  Repositioning of entrance door from front elevation to side elevation

Construction of a detached house with basement and roof accommodation, a detached garage with accommodation above, and new access onto Heathfield Avenue
Recommendation: Objections One reason for refusal given at the appeal of the previous application, 10/01275, was still valid. The proposal would have an adverse impact upon the character of the area and was therefore contrary to the Townscape Assessment and Policy H11. 

12/01504 (Full)
Bar One , High Street, Ascot, SL5 7JF
2 storey rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.

12/01505 (Works to Trees Covered by TPO)

The proposed drive was over the root protection zone of protected trees and no tree report had been submitted with the application.

Councillor Barbara Hilton, Chairman

12/00514 StMarysSchoolSports Facilities – Objections Statement

The committee considered that the scale, increased intensity and visibility of use involved brought the proposal into conflict with GB policy GB2(B).

This is a Green Belt site surrounded by residential developments and with a common boundary with the busy Coronation Road.  GB policy allows under GB1 permission for essential facilities for outdoor sport but under policy GB2 does not permit developments which would either have a greater impact on the openness of a site than the existing or a material intensification of existing levels of activity.

The committee considered the scale and intensification of the proposals would have a harmful impact on the openness of the Green Belt and failed to meet the criteria in GB2 to allow permission to be granted.  This was due to the increase in facilities proposed levels of use which was not just to create facilities within the school boundary which pupils have at present to go off site for, but to attract other schools and clubs etc to use this Green Belt site.

Additionally the committee considered the extent and duration of floodlighting, noise from spectators and vehicle movements to be harmful to the amenity of neighbouring residents. These concerns applied to the upgrading of the existing hockey pitch which had been restricted by conditions to 99/78056 (9-6pm, no Sunday use and no lighting) which the applicant now asked to be removed.
