5279  NEW APPLICATIONS                                                                                                                                          

Application No.
Location and Description
13/00498 (Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Development) 7 Silwood Close, Ascot, SL5 7DX

Certificate of lawfulness to determine whether a proposed detached outbuilding comprising a gym, cinema room, spa area and garage and an external swimming pool are lawful

No Parish Recommendation Required.

13/00499 (Full) 61 Upper Village Road, Ascot, SL5 7AY
Two storey rear, part single storey rear/side extension
Recommendation: Objections.  The committee supported the Planning Officer’s objections as the proposal was considered obtrusive and overbearing to the neighbouring properties and therefore infringed Appendix 12 of the Local Plan on light angles.
13/00539 (Outline ) Land at Queens Beeches House, London Road, Ascot
Outline application (with appearance and landscaping reserved) for the construction of 2 detached dwelling
Recommendation: Objections.  The proposal was considered to be harmful to the neighbourhood amenity of Missanda, having a potential to overlook and also an adverse effect on the adjacent trees,  Plot 2 being cramped and not fitting the description of a ‘villa in a woodland setting.’  The committee requested that an archaeological survey be carried out prior to any work commencing, should the Borough be minded to approve the application.
13/00669 (Full) Woodberry Down, St Marys Road, Ascot, SL5 9JE
Construction of a replacement dwelling with detached garage and access
Recommendation: No Objections, subject to a bat survey and walk over survey being carried out, to establish if there are any mitigation measures necessary, before work commences.
13/00679 (Full) 8 Fox Covert Close, Ascot, SL5 9PA
Single storey rear extension with covered patio area

13/00683 (Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Development) 10 Cavendish Meads, Ascot, SL5 9TD

Certificate of Lawfulness to determine whether the proposed conversion of part of the

garage and a single storey rear extension is lawful

No Recommendation Required.

Front extension to garage with first floor extension over a single storey side/rear extension
Recommendation: No Objections.
13/00731 (Full) Woodlands Lodge and Boxwood House, Heathfield Avenue, Ascot
Erection of 8 apartments with basement parking, alterations to access, entrance gates and landscaping following demolition of existing dwellings
Recommendation: Objections.  Although the committee noted that the number of apartments had been reduced from 10-8, the reduction in the scale of the building was not considered to have a material impact on its scale and mass.  This density of development was still considered to be cramped and out of character with the area, in which no comparable development had taken place.  The road width was not considered to be compliant with Borough guidelines and the lack of pavement on Heathfield Avenue caused highway concerns.  The committee considered the parking provision to be inadequate for visitors and trades vehicles and the proposal to be unsustainable due to the lack of access to public transport. Also the basement ramp grade remains too steep Therefore the objections raised for the previous application, 12/02854, still remained.
13/00746 (Full) Land At Rustlings And Kingsland, London Road, Ascot

Erection of 10 apartments ( two blocks of 5 ) with associated works following

Ecological Notes for Planning Committee Meeting  9/4/13

A.            New Planning Applications

13/00669 – Woodberry Down

This building was probably built pre-1960s and has been left empty for at least 7 years. The back garden is wooded and the site is overgrown and neglected. This increases the likelihood of wildlife in the area.

It is therefore considered that that there needs to be a bat survey and a wider biodiversity survey in accordance with the validation requirements for planning applications as issued by RBWM and the Association of Local Government Ecologists. Without these, the application should be deemed invalid.

13/00827 –St George’s Cottage

This semi-detached cottage was built pre-1914 (probably 1886 – the date shown on the façade of neighbouring properties built with similar features). The roof is built with slates. The back of the property adjoins an extensive area of woodland. Together, these three features require a bat survey to be undertaken before any modification work on this building commences. This conclusion is in accordance with:

  • the Association of Local Government Ecologists’ recommended validation requirements for planning applications (based on legislative requirements) , which requires a bat survey to be undertaken where an application involves modification:
    •  to ‘pre-1914 buildings within 400m of woodland;
    • to ‘pre-1914 buildings with gable ends or slate roofs, regardless of location’
