    Description of Site/Background

    Manor Farm is located on the northern side of Old Lane and outside the settlement area of Dockenfield and within the Countryside beyond the Green Belt and Area of Great Landscape Value. The site as a whole comprises a land holding of some 40 hectares of land. The site is occupied by a pair of semi-detached dwellings fronting onto Old Lane with agricultural buildings sited to the rear of the houses. The two houses are in the ownership of the applicant and his family. The agricultural buildings include a substantial two-storey brick and ironstone building with a clay tile roof. A large purpose built barn abuts the courtyard structure and is used for storing hay and farm materials. An additional series of barns is situated to the rear of the courtyard.

    The Proposal

    Permission is sought to convert the part two/part single storey agricultural buildings to light industrial purposes falling within the B1(c) use class. The office/workshop use would amount to 780 sqm or 640sqm measured internally excluding floorspace below head height on the first floor. The ground floor of the north eastern corner of the courtyard is currently open at ground floor with storage space above. The proposal includes the enclosure of this area to provide additional workshop space with windows and a pair of double doors on the north elevation. Conservation rooflights are proposed along both roofslopes of the single storey western wing of the courtyard. Some alterations to the eastern wing are proposed, replacing stable doors with windows.

    Submissions in Support

    A building surveyors report submitted as part of the application confirms that the building is in a good structural condition and suitable for retention. The Highways report submitted as part of the application states that the proposal will not give rise to any adverse highway conditions. A financial appraisal of the farm business has also been submitted highlighting to low returns from the agricultural business currently carried out on site. Comments from Humberts (Council’s Agricultural Consultants)

    The land amounts to 40 hectares of which 4 hectares are woodland. The remaining land is all down to grass. The current farming system is based on making hay for sale, mainly to the equestrian market. Some 7,000 bales a year are made. Some outside contracting work is done to supplement income.
    The buildings the subject of the application are not considered to be suitable for modern agricultural use, being restricted on space for modern machinery and are not up to standard for housing livestock.

    There are considered to be sufficient buildings on the farm suitable for the system of farming being adopted on a farm of this size. It is unlikely that there would be a need for replacement buildings on the holding as a result of approving the current application.

    Relevant Policies

    Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 – Policies D4, C2, C3, RD7 and RD8

    Main Planning Issues

    The main issues are considered to be as follows:-

    Change of use of existing building
    Compliance with Policy RD7 of the Local Plan
    Impact on the Countryside Beyond the Green Belt

    Change of use of existing building

    In respect of the change of use of buildings in rural areas the proposal needs to be assessed against the provisions of Policy RD7. The policy states that the re-use and adaptation of all buildings in rural areas will be permitted providing they comply with the following points:-

    a) That the proposed building to be converted is capable of retention/reuse without substantial reconstruction or enlargement and the proposed use would not detract from the appearance or character of the existing building.

    Taking into account the nature of the alterations proposed, the proposal would not involve substantial reconstruction to render the buildings capable of an appropriate reuse. The character and appearance of the buildings will remain relatively unchanged. The existing buildings are in a reasonably sound condition and capable of being converted without the need for demolition or extensive re-building.

    b) The buildings to be retained is in keeping with its surroundings and does not detract from the character or appearance of the area by reason of its form, bulk or general design.

    The redundant agricultural buildings form an attractive courtyard arrangement and the proposed conversion to a B1 use would not result in any significant additions or extensive alterations to the buildings character or appearance. The buildings are in keeping with their surroundings and do not detract from the character or appearance of the area.

    c) The proposed development will not introduce an activity, which will adversely affect the character or amenities of the area.

    Significant local concern has been expressed about the implications of likely vehicular activity associated with the commercial use of the site. It is clear that the proposed development will result in an increase in traffic and vehicular movements over and above the current levels generated by the existing agricultural use.

    The site lies within a rural location, poorly related to public transport and other services, where it would normally be considered unsuitable and unsustainable to locate a new build office use of the scale proposed. The proposal however is a change of use of former agricultural buildings. PPG 7 as well as Local Plan Policy RD7 both put the emphasis on the re-use of buildings for business use, rather than residential because that way they will have a more positive impact on local employment and the character of the building would be likely to be less affected.

    The Highways report provided by the applicants estimates that the trip generation for a gross floor area of 780 sqm in B1 use would be ten vehicles per hour total two way in the morning peak hour, eight vehicles in the evening peak hour, and about sixty nine total two-way overall during the day. This is derived from the TRICS database. The consultants consider that the majority of traffic generated by the proposal would travel along Old Lane to and from the west in order to reach the A325 principal road, which is situated only a little over one mile to the west. They also argue that there would be little benefit for vehicles generated by the proposed development to travel along the narrower section of Old Lane to and from the east via the village of Dockenfield because travel in this direction provides access to the A287 principal road which does not have direct highways connections with other major routes forming the highway network in the Farnham area.

    Cllr Hibbert, has expressed the view that journeys may come from the A287 depending on the tenants, their customers and suppliers and it is unrealistic to suppose that they would not use the narrow end of Old Lane to access the site.

    Dockenfield Parish Council have highlighted that traffic was an issue raised in the scheme for 7 dwellings dismissed on appeal. The appeal inspector stated that as Old Lane is particularly narrow and has a sharp bend to the east of the site, such additional traffic is likely to cause danger and inconvenience to other road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.

    A B1 use by its nature is a use that must be capable of being undertaken in any residential area without detriment to the amenity of the area. The impact from vehicular movements to and from the site will have some impact on the area. However it is Council Officers opinion that securing an appropriate use for the building to safe-guard its long term future outweighs the negative aspects of the scheme.

    The advice from Surrey County Council highways officers remains that the given the limitations of the floor space involved and the nature of the buildings that their use for B1c purposes should generate unacceptable traffic movements or highway safety reasons for refusal. While there are 30 parking spaces shown on the proposal, the traffic flows indicate that 30 spaces would not be used at all times. While officers have suggested reducing the number of parking spaces, the applicant has not amended the proposal.

    d) The proposed development will not be materially detrimental to the amenities or privacy of nearby properties.

    It is not considered that the uses would have a significant impact on the residential amenities of the occupiers of the Manor Farm Cottages in any event the uses are of a nature that are supported by Government advice as contained in PPG7 and Local Plan Policy RD7.

    e) The introduction of a new retail, leisure or other commercial use would not be on such a scale as to prejudice the vitality of a nearby town or village.

    It is not considered that this proposal would have any impact on the vitality of a nearby town or village. Local Plan Policy RD8 (Farm Diversification) requires that new uses of agricultural holdings should meet many of the same tests as Policy RD7 (Re-use and Adaptation of Buildings in Rural Areas) but that, in addition, proposals should ensure that 1) agricultural remains the principle or dominant use 2) that there would be no conflict with the principle agricultural use and 3) that a Farm plan should be submitted as supporting information. The main agricultural process carried out on site is the harvesting of hay with some 7,000 bales of hay sold each year. The adjacent modern barn is used for the process of storing the bales of hay and the modern machinery associated with this agricultural process. As stated in the Humberts report the buildings the subject of the proposal are not considered appropriate for the agricultural processes carried out on site, due to their size and design. f) The amount of traffic likely to be generated would not prejudice highway safety or cause significant harm to the environmental character of country roads.

    The proposal makes provision for 30 parking spaces located at the rear of the site although the scheme makes provision for a greater number of carparking spaces than proposed under the previous appeal refusal, no objections have been raised to the proposal by Surrey County Council’s Highways Engineer.

    Local Plan Policy RD7 concludes that re-use proposals within the Countryside beyond the Green Belt will be expected to be capable of satisfactory and complete implementation within the footprint and mass of the original building. Moreover it also states that any associated uses of land adjoining the building will be carefully scrutinised and resisted if they conflict with the purposes of the Countryside beyond the Green Belt or detract from its openness.

    Previous appeal decision

    Permission was dismissed on appeal for the conversion of agricultural buildings to 7 dwellings under application WA01/2202. The inspector re-iterated the requirement within PPG7, which advises that every reasonable attempt should be made to secure suitable business re-use and that this had not been properly carried out when the residential scheme was proposed.

    The inspector felt that business re-use of some kind had not been fully explored even though interest from commercial operators had been expressed. The inspector acknowledged that the existing buildings are of some historical interest with attractive detailing with 62 existing openings. The increase in a further 36 openings in the roof and elevations the inspector felt was excessive and compromised the integrity of the buildings. The current proposal would reduce some of the unsympathetic openings and create 9 small conservation rooflights. It is noted that there are already two rooflights in the eastern roofslope and one rooflight in the western roofslope facing the courtyard. It is considered that these alterations would not compromise the simple integrity of the buildings.

    Impact on the Countryside Beyond the Green Belt

    Within the Countryside Beyond the Green Belt there is a presumption against inappropriate development, Policy RD7 states that new uses of redundant buildings maybe acceptable providing the new use is capable of being contained within the converted building without extensions or external storage. Policy RD7 states that proposals should not introduce an activity which will adversely affect the character or amenities of the area.

    It is considered the conversion of the buildings will not have a detrimental impact on the character and appearance of the existing barn buildings or the site’s curtilage.

    Area of Great Landscape Value

    It is considered that the conversion of the buildings to light industrial units and the provision of car parking facilities would not have a significant impact on the Area of Great Landscaping Value.

    Conclusion

    The proposal is in line with Planning Policy Guidance Note 7 (PPG7), which encourages the re-use of agricultural or rural buildings for commercial employment uses that benefit the economy and maintain or enhance the environment.

    Description of Site/Background

    The site is located in Beavers Road, a residential street located close to the edge of Farnham Town Centre. Beavers Road has a very mixed residential character with bungalows, Victorian semis, 2 storey houses and flats. Density of development and plot sizes vary along Beavers Road although most are narrow and deep. Surrounding roads (Faulkner and Crondall Lane) contain a mixture of land uses and forms of residential development. Beavers Road has a green feel which is due to the playing fields of Potters Gate Primary School and the number of mature trees and gardens.

    The site itself extends to 0.27ha and is comprised of the houses and gardens of No’s 1, 3 and 5 Beavers Road as well as a small separate parcel of land to the rear of No. 1 with its own pedestrian access via the western side of No.1. Three vehicular accesses serve the site and levels drop by almost 2m from front to rear. At present there are 2 bungalows, a house and a small workshop on the site. The workshop is used by the owner to make violins. The gardens contain a number of ornamental trees and hedges.

    The site is almost entirely surrounded by the playing areas of Potters Gate Primary School. A tall shelter/screening belt in the School playing field lies across the southern boundary and several large trees lie just outside the site boundaries including a large oak which overhangs part of No. 5 Beavers Road.


    Proposals

    Outline consent is sought to erect of 12 new dwellings with replacement workshop and ancillary accommodation following the demolition of the three existing dwellings and workshop on the site. The dwellings consist of 8 houses and 4 flats laid out in two terraces around a central courtyard. The rear terrace is two storeys in height and the front terrace is 21/2 storeys. The ancillary accommodation includes a summer house, small office, small garden maintenance shed, cycle and bin stores as well as an open barn style parking area.

    The development is served by a single access and a total of 15 parking spaces have been provided along the eastern boundary. Most of the spaces will be reached via an archway in the front terrace.

    Main Planning Issues

    The applicant is proposing a more intensive form of mixed use development in an urban location. The key issue is whether the development creates a sustainable residential environment. Density and sustainability of location

    National and local planning policy is to make more efficient use of land, particularly previously developed land in sustainable urban locations. This site lies within easy walking distance of Farnham Town Centre and has easy access to school, bus services, centres of employment and other community facilities. It is currently used at a density well below that required by PPG3. Its location is considered to be very sustainable and it is an obvious candidate for improving the efficiency with which it is used.

    The applicants are proposing a residential density of 44 dwellings per hectare. This falls within the density requirements of PPG3 and local plan policy. The scheme also complies Policy H4 in terms of the size of dwellings.

    Mixed Use

    Promotion of mixed use developments is encouraged by national planning policy. The site is currently used for residential purposes as well as a location for making violins on a hobby basis. The existing access and planning controls over this latter use are not entirely satisfactory and this application provides an opportunity to rationalise the situation and provide a better arrangement of uses on the site. The application also provides for a greater mix of land-use activities on the site. It is felt that both the workshop and office uses will integrate well with the residential uses on the site and the wider residential/community uses of Beavers Road provided they are sufficiently well controlled by planning conditions in terms of floorspace and activities.

    Urban Design and Character

    The existing character of Beavers Road is mixed in terms of use and building types and style. Many of the residential dwellings are two storey and set in long plots, although there are several properties that are 21/2 storeys and the Old Kiln Flats are 3 storeys. Dominant elements include strong building lines, closely set buildings, enclosure of plots by walls and hedges, a green feel created by school grounds, hedges, mature gardens and tall trees. The existing site is unusual in that the width of the 3 plots and frontages of the houses are noticeably wider than many of the other dwellings in the street.

    An earlier application for 16 dwellings plus workshop was previously refused, largely on the grounds of overdevelopment. The proposals had a density over 59 dwellings/ha, a very high building mass, large areas of hard surfacing, minimal amenity space and green areas. There was no sense of enclosure and the layout was considered to be contrived.

    This application is more thoughtful and has a far better urban design. The front terrace has been designed to reflect the rhythm and grain of the attractive Victorian dwellings that lie on Beavers Road to the north of the site. The proposed archway is designed to recall the nearby yards of Farnham town centre and will provide attractive views through to the inner landscaped courtyard beyond. It will also serve to break up the length of the front building and provide visual interest. Neighbours have expressed concern at the 21/2 storeys height of the building but this is not thought to be out of keeping with other properties in the road, some of which are 3 storeys in height.

    The building mass to the rear has been restricted in height and bulk through the use of single storey ancillary buildings, open sided barns and the creation of an inner landscaped courtyard and landscaped gardens to the rear.

    Care has been taken to ensure that the significant trees on and immediately surrounding the site are retained and it is proposed to provide a front boundary treatment that reflects the style in the rest of the street.

    Overall, it is considered that the proposals reflect the character of the area and are a good urban design solution that also maximises the efficiency with which the land is used.

    Visual impact

    The site is highly visible in the street and wider townscape owing to the fact that it is surrounded on three sides by the playing areas of Potters Gate School. At present the large mature gardens contribute to the suburban green character of the area.

    The direction from which the proposed development will be most visible will be from the east, along Beavers Road where it will be visible across the hard playing areas of the school. Existing vegetation will largely screen the development from other directions. Owing to the topographical changes, single storey height of the barn garages and 2 storey height of the rear terrace, it is anticipated that the buildings at the rear of the site will not be prominent in the street-scene. The front terrace will be partially screened by existing trees and closely reflect the style and pattern of other buildings in the street. It is not anticipated that it will have an overwhelming or detrimental impact on the street-scene.


    Greening of the environment

    The previous proposals would have resulted in the need to lop several important tree in the street-scene. In addition, most of the site was given over to hard surfacing or buildings. The current proposals retain all the important trees and provided sufficient space around them. Much of the site has been given over to open space and there are two significant areas of landscaped gardens.

    Amenities

    It is considered that the proposed layout and communal gardens will create an attractive living environment for occupiers of the flats. The existing workshop use will be separated from neighbouring residential units and any potential noise and disturbance limited. Once again, the use of this workshop unit could be carefully controlled by condition. At present there is no planning control over the existing workshop use.

    As the site is surrounded by the school playing fields the potential for the development to adversely affect the amenities of neighbours is minimised. No loss of light, privacy or outlook is expected to occur.

    Highways & Parking

    The CHA have not objected to the application and the scheme complies with the parking standards for a town centre location. Highways are satisfied that the rear terrace can be adequately serviced through the archway.

    Conclusions

    It is felt that the proposal represents a sustainable use of the land and should be supported. It lies in a sustainable location, promotes a mixed use of the site and maximises the efficient use of this town centre location while promoting a good urban design solution that is in keeping with the grain and texture of the surrounding area.

    Summary of Reasons for Permitting

    The development hereby granted has been assessed against the Development Plan Policies EN1, PE10, MT2 and DP6 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994, Policies LO2, SE4, SE9, DN2, DN3 and DN12 of the Surrey Structure Replacement Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002, Policies D1, D4, D7, H10 and M2 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 and Surrey Design Guide 2002, SPG – Density and Size of Dwellings: Policy H4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002; and Planning Policy Guidance Note 3 – Housing, 1997 and material considerations, including third party representations. It has been concluded that the development would comply with the Development Plan and would not result in material harm that would justify refusal in this public interest.

    Parish Council:The Parish Council objects to the increase of a property in the village, which can accommodate a small family to one, which will become a five-bedroom property. The development will change the existing ground floor two bedrooms into enhanced living accommodation and have three new bedrooms upstairs, making in effect a five-bedroom property. This constitutes an inappropriate percentage of increase for the site and the character of the building.
      The property, furthermore, has already incorporated the garage into ‘playroom’ living accommodation (adjacent to Beales Cottages) to compensate for the applicant incorporating a bedroom into a lounge.
        The Parish Council prefers the extension to be within the original footprint, bearing in mind the above and increasing lack of smaller properties in the village.
          The Parish Council are not opposed to reasonable increases in the size of the property, but object to the scale of the increase of three further bedrooms.

            WA/2004/0192Erection of a first floor extension and construction of dormer windows in existing roof
            Withdrawn 18/03/2004.

            Description of Site/Background

            The building is a detached bungalow located within the Dockenfield Rural Settlement Area, the Countryside beyond the Green Belt and an AGLV.

            The property is at a lower level than the road, with a driveway running down the west boundary, which serves Patchways.

            The Proposal

            The proposal is for the erection of a first floor extension and construction of dormer windows. This will consist of internal alteration on the ground floor to provide a new porch area, living room, dining room, kitchen, playroom, study and cloakroom and the insertion of a new first level, which will provide three new bedrooms and a new bathroom.

            Externally, the height of the building is increasing by 0.5 metres in the east elevation and 1.5 metres in the west elevation.

            Main Planning Issues

            This application has been brought before the Western Sub Committee due to the degree of local opposition to the proposal.

            The main issues are whether the current proposal has overcome the issues / concerns of the previous planning applications WA/2004/0192 and WA/2003/0183 and whether the proposal is compliant with the relevant Local Plan Policies

            It is considered that the current proposal is acceptable and overcomes the previous planning applications’ issues / concerns. While the proposed extension does not follow either of the approaches suggested in the Council’s SPG on extensions, it is considered that the proposal is a well-balanced design, which would not have an adverse impact on the streetscene or the neighbouring dwelling’s amenity. The resultant effect would be a split level detached house with main and subservient wings. It would not appear materially out of keeping in the village. The impact of the proposal would be offset by the sunken level of the site and its relationship with the road. The separation distances to both the west and east boundaries are considered to be acceptable.

            A number of letters of objection have been received. In response to those concerns, it is considered that the proposal is not out of keeping with the surrounding character of the area, which is made up of a mixture of different types of dwellings of difference sizes. The proposal is not considered to cause materially greater overshadowing, loss of light or loss of amenity to the surrounding properties (in particular 1 and 2 Beales Cottages) than the existing dwelling. The forward projection of the porch is not considered to cause any material harm. The 40% increase guidance (Policy RD2) does not apply as the site is located within the rural settlement. The footprint of the dwelling is not being increased and therefore it is not considered that the proposal is an overdevelopment of the site.

            Conclusions

            Overall the proposal is considered acceptable and is considered to comply with the relevant Local Plan Policies.

            Conclusion/Reason for Permission

            The development hereby granted has been assessed against the following Development Plan policies: Policy RU1 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994, Policies LO5, LO6 and SE4 of the Surrey Structure Replacement Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002 and Policies D1, D4, C2, C3 and RD1 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 and material considerations, including third party representations. It has been concluded that the development would not result in any harm that would justify refusal in the public interest.

            Description of Site/Background

            Reeds Hatch Farm is situated on the eastern side of Boundary Road in a rural area surrounded by fields and woodland. There is a well established livery stable operating from the Farm. The all weather dressage/training area is used by the riders who use the stables and is located approximately 100 metres to the east of the Farm house.

            The Proposal

            This is a retrospective application for the retention of 8 floodlights which are fixed to galvanised steel poles which are 4.57 metres high. The lights are angled to shine down onto the all weather area.

            Submissions in Support

            The applicant has supplied the specification for the lighting and it is explained that the level of lighting is necessary to ensure the safety of the horses and their riders. The applicant has also agreed that the lights will only be on when the all weather riding area is in use and has agreed that the lights will be switched off by 6.30 pm on Saturdays and Sundays and by 8pm on weekdays.

            Policies C2, C3, RD14 and D1 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

            Main Planning Issues

            The main issues are whether the retention of the lights will adversely impact on the character and appearance of the countryside and AGLV and whether the lights will significantly impact on the levels of light in the area.

            Local Plan Policy RD14 relates to commercial horse-keeping and states that permission will only be granted for new or extended equestrian activities subject to criteria including that the proposal would not significantly detract from the character of the rural landscape. Given that the riding area exists, your officers do not consider that the introduction of modest lighting, providing the time for illumination is controlled by conditions, will adversely impact on the character of this rural area.

            Conclusions

            Your Officers consider that as the lights are illuminating an existing facility it is unlikely to result in a significantly greater level of activity at the site. It is felt that conditions to restrict the time when the lights will be on will significantly reduce the impact of the light in the night sky.

            Summary of Reasons for Granting Permission

            The development granted has been assessed against the Development Plan policies; Policies PE3, PE7 and RU6 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994, Policies LO5 and SE8 of the Surrey Structure Replacement Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002 and Policies C2, C3, RD14 and D1 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 and material considerations, including third party representations.

            WA/2004/0343Erection of a building to provide 10 flats
            Refused
            31.03.04
            Appeal lodged

            Description of Site/Background

            No.58 Waverley Lane is a large two storey detached house on the southern side of Waverley Lane within the developed area. Permission was recently refused under WA/2004/0343 for 10 flats on the site because the scale and mass of the scheme was considered detrimental to the character of the area and amenity of No.56 Waverley Lane.

            The Proposal

            Permission is now sought to erect a replacement building to provide 8 flats over three storeys with the third floor within the roof space and 12 parking spaces. The scheme is similar to that refused under application WA/2004/0343 but the number of units and the depth and width of the building has been reduced. The building would have a footprint of 387 sqm compared to the existing single dwelling with a footprint of 254 sqm although the footprint of the main two storey element of the existing property is approximately 152 sqm.

            Submissions in Support

            The size of the building has been significantly reduced from the refused scheme with a reduction of 442 sqm, from 1262 to 820 sqm.
            The site is within the developed area of Farnham where the principle of new development is acceptable.
            The proposed density is 27dpha which is below the density range sought by PPG3. This follows a request by officers and residents that the building be reduced and will make efficient use of land.

            Relevant Policies

            Policies PE10, DP6, MT2 and MT5 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994.
            Policies SE4, DN2 and DN12 of the Surrey Structure Replacement Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002.
            Policies D1, D4, D6, D7, HE14, H4, H10, M2 and M14 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.
            SPG on Density and Size of Dwellings: Policy H4 of the WBC Local Plan 2002

            Main Planning Issues

            The principle of redevelopment at a higher density for flats is acceptable in order to make more efficient use of urban land.

            The main issues for consideration are whether the proposed development is appropriate for the site, having regard to the density of development, the impact on the character and amenity of the area and the impact on neighbouring dwellings.

            Impact on Character of the Area

            The proposed development would have a density of 27 dwellings per hectare (dpha). While this fails to comply with the criteria in Policy H4 of 30-50 dpha, the SPG, para. 19 states that Policy H4 is not the primary consideration in non-designated areas of established low-density residential development, characterised by large detached houses in large plots where there is some consistency in the locality. Policies D1 and D4 are used to protect the character of these smaller areas.

            The character of the area is of large detached houses in large plots. There are no examples of flatted development in close proximity to the site. However, this in itself is not considered grounds for refusal.

            The proposal would be seen when approaching along Waverley Lane from the north and from the front of the site. The depth and width of the proposed building have been reduced in this scheme and would not be substantially greater than any other property in close proximity. The building would have the appearance of a substantial detached dwelling.

            The applicant has referred to No. 54 Waverley Lane which has a wide frontage of 26 metres. The width of the proposed building has been reduced from 32.8m to 29.6m since the last application. The depth of the side wings has been reduced from 16.5m to 11m which is in keeping with both adjoining properties. The height of the building has been reduced from 10m to 9.5m, with a small element of flat roof which would not be seen due to the dummy pitch at the ridge. Therefore there is very limited roof void which complies with advice in the Surrey Design Guide to maximise the use of roof space.

            The depth, width, massing and bulk of the proposal are not considered out of keeping and would not detract from the character of the area.

            Impact on Amenity of Neighbouring Properties

            The neighbouring property, No.56 Waverley Lane has recently been rebuilt with three ground floor windows on the flank elevation facing the site, serving a kitchen, utility room and lounge. Due to a slight difference in levels the windows are clearly visible from the ground floor of the proposal. Therefore the windows would overlook the front parking area and flank roof of the proposal.

            The separation distance between the proposed building and the flank wall of No.56 has increased from 9 metres to 12 metres and the number of windows within the west elevation are restricted to an en-suite bathroom window and French doors at ground floor level and two obscurely glazed roof lights within the roof slope. Additional tree planting is proposed along the boundary. Therefore, the revised proposal is not considered to have an unduly adverse impact on the amenity of No. 56.

            Impact on Highways

            The proposal would provide 12 parking spaces for the 8 flats which complies with the maximum parking standard of 1.5 spaces per 2 bedroom property. While concerns are raised over the increase in traffic, the Highways Authority have raised no objections over highway safety from the proposal. The existing access would have improved sightlines. The parking spaces would not be visible from Waverley Lane due to the high front boundary wall. They are also set off the boundary by at least 5 metres by proposed landscaping, trees and hedging.

            Other Matters

            For clarification, No.55 Waverley Lane known as “Over Compton” was designed by Harold Falkner and is directly opposite the site.

            The site is within an Area of High Archaeological Potential and the county archaeologist has recommended a safeguarding condition.

            While a number of trees are to be felled, the Council’s Tree Officer has advised that the majority of tree loss is of domestic scale or not indigenous to the area and therefore has no objection.

            Conclusions

            While the proposal falls below the recommended density, the proposal is considered to make efficient use of land in accordance with Policy H4 and PPG3. The scale and mass of the building are considered acceptable in terms of its impact on the character of the area and amenity of the area.

            SUMMARY OF REASONS FOR GRANTING PERMISSION
