Ward :Godalming Charterhouse
Development Plan :Developed area, Godalming Hillsides Policy BE5, TPO
Highway Authority :No requirements
Drainage Authority: Not yet available – to be reported orally
Town Council:Object – loss of amenity of woodland which should be protected as per the condition of the original development
Representations:The Godalming Trust object and state:-
The Trust notes that the current applicant was the beneficiary of the original planning application for The Brambles development (WA83/1460) and that permission was subject to the woodland (edged in red and blue on the current site plan) being properly conserved and managed. Concerned that the appellant’s questionable stewardship of the woodland – described in the application as unmanaged woodland – is, in effect, seen as justifying further residential development. Consider that planning permission for the proposed dwelling should be refused because these woodland areas are subject to preservation and management conditions under WA83/1460; the woodland is covered by an area TPO and is within the Godalming Hillside Area BE5, because of its visual importance to Farncombe and Firth Hill. Furthermore, the importance of conserving the woodland was reconfirmed by a Planning Inspector on appeal (20.3.86).
The Trust has little confidence in the robustness of the proposed woodland management arrangement by a Residents Company. It is expecting a lot of residents who are likely to change over time, to see through a long term 25 year programme of woodland management and it seems doubtful that any formal agreement could be enforced effectively. In any event, the principle of residential development facilitating woodland management did not work with the original Brambles development and now appears to be a pretext for development that erode the woodland – experience in the Firth Hill area suggests that builders are likely to remove or damage more trees than indicated on scheme drawings, and the impact of the proposed woodland management scheme, if implemented without expert continuing care, could be devastating.
5 further letters of objection based on the following grounds:
1. unnecessary loss of trees
2. loss of character
3. concern with long term achievement of management plan
4. concern about phasing of management plan
5. management plan would cause loss of wildlife habitat
6. loss of privacy and loss of security with management plan
2 letters of support from Residents Company Brambles Godalming Ltd.
“1. The developer, Deeprose Ltd, is prepared to transfer the woodland to the residents.
2. The residents have undertaken their own investigations on the works required to bring the woodland back into good order, including obtaining financial costings for the immediate and ongoing work, meeting with specialist tree contractors and finally meeting on site with representatives of the Forestry Commission.
3. The necessary finance is in place to meet the costs of undertaking the woodland management proposals.
The residents of The Brambles, therefore, raise no objection to the above application; indeed we would welcome it, providing that there is a binding agreement with the developer to transfer the woodland to the residents. This would ensure the future upkeep and maintenance. It would also ensure that the woodland was guaranteed to be retained for future generations as a strategic area of tree cover on the northern side of Farncombe/Frith Hill”.

Description of Site/Background

The site comprises part of a wooded area of land covered by a Tree Preservation Order. The site measures 0.12 ha and comprises a sloping site on the south-west side of The Brambles access road. The site forms part of a wooded area of land that straddles The Brambles with a further 0.48 ha to the north of the road. The site contains a number of trees. A tree survey report has been submitted which describes the trees and the application site as unmanaged sycamore woodland with thorn understorey. The site falls gently from the west to east and from south to north. To the east of the site is a 1980s development of detached two storey dwellings at the eastern end of The Brambles (WA83/1460). To the south-west of the site is a covered reservoir.
The Proposal

The proposal is to erect a detached 4 bedroomed house of 270 sqm. The house would be of two storeys, with advantage being taken of the changes in ground levels to provide a basement double garage. The house plan is linear in nature, with a shallow depth, in order to relate to the contours of the site. The house is designed in a traditional style with a steeply pitched roof, vertically oriented windows, and brick detailing. The walls are of red brick with tiled roof.

Those trees that provide amenity value are retained, with an area in the centre of the site cleared to provide room for the house and an adequate amenity area to its rear. A new hedge would be planted along the rear boundary to provide enclosure to the site.

Submissions in Support

The site and the area to the north have a generally un-kept wooded appearance. Submitted in support of the application is a tree survey and arboricultural report for the site. Many of the trees are of a straggly nature, and individually are not of any significant merit. It is only their collective value which benefits the character of the area, and the Godalming Hillsides which they form part.

This wooded area has not benefited from any woodland management, and as such, the area is subject to fallen and spindly trees. Such trees are susceptible to storm damage, with the potential for a significant proportion of the trees to be lost in one severe storm. Whilst the site and the area immediately to the north have a wooded appearance, the wider area has an established residential character, with residential properties to the north and south. These properties are primarily two storey in form, and are a mix of detached and semi-detached houses.

There is no requirement by any legal agreement or planning condition for the owners of the site to carry out any management of the woodland. The Godalming Trust refer to a requirement under permission WA83/1460 for the woodland to be managed. The planning files confirm that such a requirement was very limited in its nature and that it has been discharged by the Council with a scheme of limited thinning and a one off planting of 12 trees. There is no requirement to carry out any further works.

Should the woodland be left unmanaged the visual benefits that it currently provides will be lost by windfall and neglect. The management plan has been produced by a suitably qualified and experienced person and it has been developed in association with the Council’s former Tree Officer. The plan will ensure that unsuitable trees are removed and new trees planted over a phased period, thereby protecting the wooded appearance of the area, which falls within the Godalming Hillsides. It should be noted that there is no objection to the proposal from the current Tree Officer.

PPG3 acknowledges that seeking best use of the land should not be to the detriment of the character of the area. Given that the site lies within the Godalming Hillsides area, that the proposed single dwelling will make better use of the site without harming the wooded nature of the skyline. Any greater intensity of development is likely to require the removal of more trees, which may lead to an erosion of the wooded character of the Godalming Hillsides.

The wooded appearance provided from the whole of the wooded area, was primarily due to the larger area to the north of the application site. Without an acceptable form of management, the wooded appearance of the area and its contribution to the Godalming Hillsides is likely to be lost. As such, the proposed dwelling would both protect the wooded character of the hillsides as well as provide sufficient financial investment and control to ensure that the whole of the wooded area would be managed in the future.

The applicant, who controls both the application site and the woodland to the north, is prepared, on the granting of planning permission, to transfer the woodland area to The Brambles Resident Company and enter into an appropriate legal agreement requiring management of the woodland in accordance with the plan provided with this application.

The submitted woodland management proposal will ensure that the woodland is properly managed, including appropriate coppicing and new planting, for a 25 year period. This will secure the long term future of the woodland, which in turn will benefit not only the immediate residents of The Brambles, but will safeguard the treed character of the Godalming Hillsides for the future.

Relevant Policies

Policies SE4 and SE9 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004
Policies D1, D4, D6, D7 and BE5 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

Main Planning Issues

The main planning issues are considered to be:

1. Impact on the wooded Godalming Hillside and compliance with Policy BE5.

2. Appropriateness of layout and design and effect on character and neighbours amenity.

1. Impact on wooded hillside and compliance with Policy BE5

Policy BE5 of the Local Plan states:-

“Development will not be acceptable on the Godalming hillsides, as shown on the Proposals Map, unless the Council is satisfied that the development would not diminish the wooded appearance of the hillside and result in a loss of tree cover to the detriment of the area and the character and setting of the town.”

The Council’s Tree Officer considers the proposal acceptable as it would, overall, achieve the long term health of the largest part of the woodland area. The section of woodland that would be lost as part of the development proposal comprises a number of straggly trees individually of no significant merit. As a group, the trees provide a sparse wooded appearance which appears unmaintained and adds little to the wooded appearance of the hillside. The wooded area on the remainder of the area covered by the Tree Preservation Order comprises a more effective area of woodland that adds to the character and wooded appearance of the area and is more visible in near and distant views. This area would be retained as woodland and maintained under the terms of the Management Plan. This plan provides for:-

Application Site (south-west of The Brambles access road)

“The retained woodland areas to the east and west boundaries will undergo management works before the new property is occupied. These works will include 30% coppicing, 30% felling and replacement woodland edge planting to augment the new garden enclosure hedging. The front garden areas will be graded to flowing contours, turfed and awkward areas planted up with mixed woodland groundcover species.

The eastern boundary with the adjoining housing will be reinforced with native screening planting including species such as thorn, field maple, hazel and rowan (planted as staked feathered trees).

The overall landscape scheme is one of mixed age enclosure planting with a gap in the tree canopy to allow sufficient natural daylight into the new property”.

Remaining area of woodland (north-east of The Brambles access road)

The 25 year woodland management plan would have the objectives:-

“- (i) to produce a mixed age, stable broadleaf woodland
- (ii) to improve the site public amenity and nature conservation value
- (iii) to enhance the site in accordance with the current planning policy (WBC Policy BE5)
- (iv) to provide a mature landscape setting to the new dwelling.

3.9 In order to fulfil these objections a phased programme of 50% rotational coppicing, 50% felling and replacement planting will be adopted. The attached plan Annexe 1 shows the five distinct areas for progressive management works.

3.10 Years 1 – 5 Management areas

A suitable access route will be created for timber extraction, which can also provide pedestrian access to the viewing area towards the north with the Hogs Back on the distance horizon. Replacement tree planting to the cleared areas will include oak, ash, birch and woodland edge species such as rowan, field maple, thorn and bird cherry. New whip and stake feathered planting to include rabbit protection, mulching and regular maintenance to establishment. Also included in this phase will be boundary maintenance and reinforced boundary screening for adjacent residents.

3.11 Years 6 – 10 Management areas

In order to maintain a sustained skyline tree canopy it is planned to clear an approximate 8m wide margin to the existing Brambles driveway and fell all poor weak species. All brushwood will be chipped and composted on site with log piles for wildlife. Bulk cordwood will be removed from site to comply with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance. Advanced replacement planting as section 3.9 will be carried out in order to maintain a mature landscape setting to the new dwelling throughout the woodland management period when other areas will be subject to clearance and coppicing.

3.12 Years 11 – 15, 16 – 20, 21 – 25 Management areas

Phase coppicing, felling and replacement planting will continue until all woodland areas have been brought into healthy and manageable arboricultural standard. The residents management company will retain the services of the appointed tree surgeon/landscape management contractor and will be responsible for all routine instructions. WBC can be consulted in emergencies or other public safety/planning issues. At the end of the 25 year period the residents association will review a further legal undertaking for the woodland management.

Biennial tree condition surveys will be undertaken to monitor the condition of all site trees and action arboricultural management works as necessary with Consultant Arboriculturalist recommendations.”

It is considered that the Management Plan information submitted would form an effective basis for ensuring the long term future of the larger area of woodland.

Given the proper management of the woodland as proposed it is considered that the long term retention of the woodland should result and the terms of Policy BE5 would be met. The wooded appearance will be lost over time if the area is not properly managed and the proposals are the best way of achieving the long term wooded appearance of the hillside and the minimal loss of tree cover.

2. Appropriateness of layout and design and effect on character and neighbours amenity

The dwelling proposed is large with a frontage extending to 16.9m and a maximum depth of 7.7m. The dwelling has been designed in this way to optimise the development of the site. The development would not be intrusive in the wider area and in itself would not materially affect the character of the wider area.

There will be no overlooking as the principal first floor windows face the rear of the site facing open land to the rear forming the covered reservoir. Furthermore, given the distance from neighbouring properties, tree cover, aspect and orientation of the site, the neighbouring properties will suffer no material loss of light or overshadowing.

The dwelling is considered to be designed in an appropriate way for the site and would not be unduly visible in longer views of the site. The dwelling would not materially diminish the wooded appearance of the area subject to implementation of a satisfactory management plan for the larger area of woodland.

Conclusions

The site chosen for the development comprises an area of poor quality sparse woodland of no material benefit to the character of the wider area. The loss of trees on the application site is compensated for by the effective management and maintenance of the larger more visually prominent area of woodland.

Summary of Reasons for Granting Permission

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the Development Plan policies; Policies SE4 and SE9 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004 and Policies D1, D4, D6, D7 and BE5 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 and material considerations, including third party representations. It has been concluded that the development would with the completion of a legal agreement requiring a woodland management plan comply with the Development Plan and would not result in material harm that would justify refusal in this public interest.

Recommendation

That subject to consideration of Drainage Authority comments and subject to the entering into of a legal agreement to include the owners of interests in and developed to applications WA81/1278 and WA83/1460 as well as owners and applicants of the current application site (at the applicants’ expense within six months) to secure the implementation of a woodland management scheme permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions:

Representations:1 letter has been received raising objections on the following grounds:-
1. Any dormer window whether flat roofed, pitched, symmetrical, large or small fails to protect and enhance the character of the property and the terrace of cottages in general;
2. The cottages have a simple design of an historic nature and a visually prominent extension on the roof can only ruin the overall character and appearance;
3. The design fails to preserve the terrace character and the proposal dramatically alters the style and design of the entire roof;
4. This view is clearly supported by the Planning Department in previous refusals and reinforced by the Appeal inspector;
5. The common sense approach is to place a discrete flat velux window within the existing roofline.

Description of Site/Background

No. 120 Brighton Road is a two storey dwelling, one of a terrace of four cottages, situated on a sharp corner on the south side of Brighton Road. These traditional Victorian cottages are in an elevated position above the road and have a row of rear outbuildings serving them, with steeply raised gardens to the rear. The cottages are also located on the far south side of the Crownpits Conservation Area.

Permission was refused under WA03/1165 and subsequently dismissed on appeal for the erection of a dormer window. The Inspector’s concerns were principally that the proposal would cause harm to the character of the roofscape within the Conservation Area and visual harm to the symmetry and form of the cottages. The Inspector concluded that the proposed dormer window would appear incongruous with the property and the terrace as a whole, appearing visually prominent when viewed from the raised garden area at the rear, detracting from the symmetry of the terrace and be out of keeping with the roofscape in the immediate locality. As such, the proposal was seen to fail to preserve and detract from the character of the Conservation Area.

The application has been brought to Committee at the request of a local member.

The Proposal

Permission is sought for the erection of a flat roofed dormer window to the rear roof area of the property. The dormer would measure 1.8m in length, 0.9m in height and extend 1.5m in depth from the roof line. It would be constructed in wood with a lead roof.

Submissions in Support

In support of the scheme, the applicant has put forward the following argument:-
The Council’s decision notice of WA03/1165 stated that the Council is not against a dormer window in principle. In the appeal decision APP/R3650/A/1133192 the Inspector acknowledged that existing dormer windows do preserve the character of the conservation area. The Inspector did not consider that a dormer would be unacceptable in principle. Instead she offered specific criticism of the appeal design. All of the Inspector’s points have been addressed in this application Relevant Policies

Policies SE4 and SE5 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004
Policies D1, D4 and HE8 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

Main Planning Issues

The site is within the developed area of Godalming and the Crownpits Conservation Area. Development Plan policies indicate that development should preserve or enhance the character of the Conservation Area and not result in any detriment to visual and residential amenity.

The proposal is s revision to previously refused applications for a dormer window, one of which, (WA03/1165), was dismissed at appeal

The current proposal differs from the appeal scheme in the following way.

The current application now proposes a flat roof dormer, which is positioned within the roofscape below the main ridge of the roof, adjacent to the chimney stack and directly above and in line with the existing ground and first floor windows of the property. The proposed dormer has a width of 1.8m at its widest point, a height of 0.9m and projects out from the roof line by 1.5m.

In comparison, the appeal scheme was also set within the roofscape and below the ridge of the existing roof, but the proposed dormer had a more elongated form measuring 2m at its widest point, a height of 0.9m and also projecting out from the roof line by 1.5m. The appeal scheme was positioned centrally across the roof span.

Although, this dormer is slightly reduced in width it is still considered to be of an unacceptable form and design and would still appear intrusive and harmful to visual amenity. It is not considered to preserve the character of the cottages nor enhance the Conservation Area and does not address Officers previous concerns or the concerns expressed by the Appeal Inspector.

The Historic Buildings Officer is of the view that the proposed dormer window would appear overly crowded in such close proximity to the chimney and also if it were to be allowed, and the end terraced cottages were to do the same, it would result in major changes to the roof form of the cottages, which would be even more prominent and harmful. Concerns were also raised over the access arrangements to the loft room and whether there would be sufficient space and headroom from a practical point of view.

The applicants’ submissions are noted. However, the previous refusal was made in the light of the Inspector’s comments, which are an important material consideration in any assessment. The Inspector made specific distinction between other dormer windows in the Conservation Area, which were considered to work well and the appeal scheme, which was materially harmful to the character of the building and area. The current proposal, although smaller than the appeal proposal, remains a flat roof dormer within this sensitive roofscape. It conflicts with the Council’s SPG on residential extensions, which discourages flat roof dormers and fails to overcome the previous Inspector’s concerns in respect of the impact upon the uncluttered and symmetrical form of this roofscape.

Recommendation

That permission be REFUSED for the following reason:

1. The site is within an area designated as a Conservation Area and the proposal would conflict with Local Planning Authority's intention to preserve or enhance the character of such areas contrary to Policy SE5 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004 and Policy HE8 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.

Description of Site/Background

The site is located on the south east side of Bridge Street within the Town Centre of Godalming and within the Conservation Area. The site consists of an open piece of land used as a car park area together with a raised area of land currently occupied by a dilapidated single storey building.

Directly to the north east is a four storey building with retail use on the ground floor and residential use above in the from of 5 flats. To the south of the site is the Sun Inn Public House, which wraps around into Wharf Street.

Bridge Street is characterised by a mixture of building heights and types of building. The street contains a number of listed buildings as well as more recent 70’s architecture. Bridge Street is predominantly in retail use at ground floor level.

The Proposal

WA2004/2638

The proposal is to erect a four-storey building, with the fourth floor partially set within a pitched roof. Two retail shops are proposed at ground floor level each shop containing some 25sq.m of retail space. The shops would have two shop fronts onto Bridge Street, with the end shop unit having a return frontage onto the access between the building and the Sun Inn. Above the retail units on each of the proposed floors the scheme includes the provision of self-contained two-bedroom flats each measuring 85sq.m with access gained from the side of the building adjacent to the Sun Inn public house. The flats would be served by a lift and internal staircase. The proposed new building would be sited 2 metres off the boundary with No 2 Bridge Street and would project 2 metres beyond the rear building line of No.2 at the rear. The building would have a width of 11.5m and a maximum depth of 11m. The building would have a height of 10 – 10.5m to the eaves and a height of 14m to the ridge.

The building would abut the raised area at the rear; the single storey building currently occupying this raised area would be cleared to provide an amenity area of some 85sq.m.

WA/2004/2639

The proposal is for Listed Building consent for the erection of a building to provide 2 retail units and 3 flats following demolition of an existing outbuilding. The proposal is as above. An application for listed building consent has been made due to the fact that the site falls within the curtilage of the Sun Inn public house, a Grade II Listed Building and abuts the listed wall at the rear of the site.

WA/2004/2640

The proposal involves the demolition of a single storey building constructed of brick and tile and located on the raised area directly behind the existing car parking area that fronts onto Bridge Street. The building measures a height of 4m to a low-pitched roof and has a length of 9m. The building backs onto the neighbouring public house in Wharf Street although has no access to this property. The building is in a poor state of repair and no particular architectural merit.

Submissions in Support

The site is positioned within the commercial heart of the Godalming town centre, Conservation Area and lies between the Grade II Listed Sun Inn public house to the south and number 2 Bridge Street to the north. The site comprises an open yard/parking area with a retaining wall to the rear and beyond this on an elevated area of land is a vacant storage building of poor condition of no particular architectural merit or historic interest.

At present the flank wall of No.2 Bridge Street is used for the display of 2no. 48 sheet poster advertisements which represent a particularly alien and unattractive feature within this key part of the Town Centre and Conservation Area. This feature also serves to emphasise the gap in the otherwise continuous Bridge Street frontage. The yard also serves to collect rubbish and windblown debris again detracting from the interest and visual amenity of the street scene and character of the area in this locality.

The proposal has been designed to compliment the traditional Bridge Street Architecture. The scheme has been amended to address and protect the reasonable amenities of the existing occupiers at No. 2 particularly in the light of the proposed buildings rearward projection.

The height of the building at No. 2 when considered against the rising levels of Bridge Street to the South and lower scale and mass of the Sun Inn also provides for a good reference point for setting the appropriate overall scale, mass, height and roof form of the new building. The street also has a mixed-use character accommodating a variety of retail, office and residential uses, often within the same building.

The ground floor level at Bridge Street, will provide two small retail units with independent services and storage areas, and the upper storeys provide for 3no. two bedroom flats with independent access. The external layout provides for refuse storage at ground level and an amenity area on the raised level to the rear of the site. The residential element of the proposal is provided as a ‘car free’ scheme with no on site car parking provided. This enables the scheme to retain active commercial units at ground level which compliments the function, interest and public amenities for this part of the town centre.

In architectural terms the proposal has taken into consideration the Victorian detail of some of the adjacent and nearby buildings. This has served also to set the overall height of the proposed ‘infill’ building such that traditional building proportions are retained and the proposal presents a vertical rather than horizontal emphasis to its principle elevations. The roof form and detail also provides for a proper articulation of the transition between what is presently an open gap site and the taller and generally imposing built form presented by the flank elevation of No. 2 Bridge Street adjacent. Hipped elevations are proposed; the proposed fašade finish reflects and respects the proportions, scale fenestration detail and materials of the Victorian reference buildings in the locality. Medium colour density brickwork is proposed contrasted with brick storey bands with the stone pilasters and window framing to be of a natural Portland Stone. Window frames are to be quality timber with high standard of paint decoration finish. The retail shop units would be of a hardwood polished frame and tiled stallriser, all to compliment the adjacent building detail.

Relevant Policies

Policies LO8, SE4 and SE5 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004
Policies TC1, TC3, HE8, D1 and D4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

Main Planning Issues The site is located within the Godalming Town Centre where Policies TC1 and TC3 apply. Policy TC1 seeks to maintain and enhance the role of Town Centres as a focus of shopping, commercial and social life. Part (b) of the policy expressly seeks to encourage retail uses in the town centre. Part (d) of the policy seeks to encourage and retain residential accommodation in appropriate locations and finally Part (e) encourages new uses and development, which both attract more customers, visitors and spending, and maintain or enhance the quality of the town centre environment.

Policy TC3 encourages investment within the town centre where it maintains or enhances the quality of the environment and is of an appropriate scale, having regard to the size and character of the town centre and buildings nearby. The proposal incorporating both retail units and residential flats above would comply with the aims of these two policies to enhance the vitality of the town centre. The proposal whilst comprising a tall four-storey building would nevertheless infill an existing gap between a slightly taller building in the form of No2 Bridge Street and three/four storey proportioned Sun Inn Public House. The site falls within the Godalming Conservation Area and it is considered that the proposed building has been designed sympathetically in relation to neighbouring properties incorporating detailing in the brickwork and windows, together with the shop front details to compliment the neighbouring Victorian building. It is considered that the proposal would both preserve and enhance the Conservation Area. The proposal has been reduced in size from that previously proposed, to reduce the buildings rearward projection particularly in relation to No2 Bridge Street so as not to impact on the amenities of the occupiers of these properties. Windows to the residential flats are proposed at the front and rear of the site as well as the in the flank wall facing No2, although these are bathroom windows and would look out onto the flank wall of No2 Bridge Street. To the rear of the property would be the amenity area and beyond this the garden area of the Conservative Members club in Wharf Street. On the south facing flank wall looking towards the Sun Inn public house, there are windows in the flank wall to the internal staircase and living rooms. The living room windows in the flank wall would look out onto Bridge Street and the flank wall of The Sun Inn public house. The proposal would not result in a loss of privacy or overlooking.

The proposed new building would not have a detrimental impact on the character and setting of the neighbouring Grade II Listed Building, the proposed design and detailed finish would have a positive impact on the street scene and the character and appearance of this part of the Conservation Area. The demolition of the existing single storey building would remove a rather dilapidated non-descript single storey building that due to the levels difference between Bridge Street and the siting of the building has a very prominent and rather detrimental appearance. The removal of this building would preserve and enhance the conservation area.

The existing informal car park area would be lost and no parking would be provided as part of this development. However the site is in a town centre location where good public transport links exist and public car parks are located within walking distance. Given this situation it is not considered that an objection could be raised in respect of no on site parking.

Conclusions

The development hereby recommended for permission has been assessed against the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 Policies TC1, TC3, HE8, D1, D4 and material considerations, including third party representations. It has been concluded that proposed development would not result in material harm to the immediate area, the neighbouring listed building and the amenities of neighbouring residential occupiers.

SUMMARY OF REASONS FOR GRANTING PERMISSION

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the following Development Plan policies: Policies LO8, SE4 and SE5 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004, Policies TC1, TC3, HE8, D1, D2 and D4 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 this public interest.
