Specifically, he advised that 26 letters of objection had been received whilst there were none in support. He referred to the impact this application would have upon neighbouring homes, the blocking of sunlight and daylight and the impact on neighbours’ privacy including potential child safeguarding concerns relating to the overlooking of a nearby college dormitory. Residents had raised concerns regarding the overdevelopment of the site and that it may set a precedent for future infill and back garden development in the area. Finally, he raised issues concerning the site drainage, the waste and recycling collections and the additional pressure that would be placed on the current on-street parking.
