Walcote Place, High Street, Winchester (Case no. 19/01205/HOU) pdf icon PDF 268 KB

Minutes:

Item 8:  Single storey side extension to existing residential property.

Walcote Place, High Street, Winchester.

Case number: 19/01205/HOU.

 

During public participation Geraldine Rothman and Rebecca Rothman spoke in objection to the application and answered Members’ questions thereon.

 

During public participation, Councillor Hiscock spoke on this item as Ward Member.

 

In summary, Councillor Hiscock stated that:

·        The Planning Policies to take into account were under DM17 relating to light and also the overbearing nature of the proposed development resulting in an unacceptable impact on the adjacent property.

·        The lighting would be visually intrusive as the present lean-to was not a lit room and the proposed extension would be a room (including a glass wall) that would be internally lit all year round.  There had been no assessment of the impact of light and this should be undertaken.

·        External lighting would also be in a sensitive position next to a domestic property and would affect rooms in that property in terms of light glare.

·        The proposal would affect the visual amenity of the neighbour due to its very close proximity.

·        A site visit was recommended to assess the potential impact on the neighbouring domestic property.

 

At the conclusion of debate, the Committee agreed to defer determination to the Committee’s next meeting in order to allow for a site visit to view the proposed application in the context of its setting and the relationship with the neighbouring properties and to assess the potential impact of light spillage.

(i)         That in respect of item 8 (Walcote Place, High Street, Winchester) the application be deferred for determination to the Committee’s next meeting on 12 September 2019 in order to allow for a site visit at 9:30am on Tuesday 10 September 2019 to view the proposed application in the context of its setting and the relationship with the neighbouring properties and to assess the potential impact of light spillage.
