Reason – Policy D1 – Design Quality and Built Environment (1a an 1b) and Policy S1 – Sustainable Development.

 

A Members’ Update had been circulated prior to the meeting that detailed representations received from interested parties.

 

Following the Officer’s presentation, the Agent, Mr Terry Hyland, addressed the Committee. The Chairman then moved the Officer’s recommendation that planning application 20/00833/HOUSE- Beachcrest, Sea View Promenade, St Lawrence, Essex CM0 7NE be refused for the reasons as set out in section 8 of the report. This was seconded by Councillor R G Boyce, MBE.

 

Councillor Bassenger opened the discussion by saying that this was a great improvement on what was there at the moment and given the existing mix of styles would not be detrimental to the character of the area or the street scene. He felt the design was very attractive, the two buildings would benefit from the upgrade and proposed that the application be approved contrary to the Officer’s recommendation for the aforementioned reasons.

 

Councillor Channer, having called -in the application, concurred with Councillor Bassenger. She had walked the area earlier to refresh her knowledge and noted the diverse mix of architecture and design, including different size balconies and windows. In response to a comment from the Lead Specialist: Development Management she agreed that the application was different to that previously refused in that it had been significantly altered and represented good design, in line with policies in the approved Local Development Plan (LDP). She was happy to second the proposal to approve and reasoned that the application complied with Policies D1 and H4 of the LDP.

 

There being no further discussion the Chairman put the Officer’s recommendation to refuse the application to the Committee and upon a vote being taken it was lost. He then put Councillor Bassenger’s proposal to approve the application, seconded by Councillor Channer to the Committee. Upon a vote being taken it was approved.
