Introduction

This application was deferred at the last meeting in order to invite a representative from the Highway Authority to attend a meeting to explain the Highway Authority’s position on the application. Unfortunately, due to reduced resources a representative cannot attend. However, a statement has been submitted, see Annexe A.

Description of Site/Background

The site is located at the junction of Waverley Lane and Menin Way in Farnham. The existing access to the site is from Menin Way. The Hospice comprises of a large building with an irregular footprint which has been expanded over the years.

There have been a number of permissions for extensions, alterations and outbuildings at The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. A separate application has been submitted for the demolition of the existing storage wing and replacement with new therapy and training rooms under application WA/2004/2859.

The Proposal

Permission is sought to create a secondary access to the site from Waverley Lane and to erect three storage sheds on the northern boundary of the hardstanding. The existing access to the site is from Menin Way. The proposed storage sheds would be to the north of the proposed wing which is under consideration elsewhere on this agenda.

The proposed access and storage sheds would result in an alteration to the layout of the car parking. The existing layout shows 50 parking spaces and the revised layout would provide 49 spaces.

Submissions in Support

The applicant has submitted a design statement in support of the two proposals. The secondary access is proposed to rationalise and increase the car parking as the route between the front and rear areas will be replaced with parking bays and so maximise the use of the available space. The Waverley Lane access is proposed to be for staff parking and all servicing. The existing entrance from Menin Way is intended for visitors only.

Relevant Policies

Policies SE4, SE9, DN2, DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004
Policies D1, D4, D6, D7, CF2, M2, M14 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

Main Planning Issues

The expansion of community facilities is supported in principle by Policy CF2 of the Local Plan subject to a number of criteria.

The extensions to the existing hospice under WA/2004/2859 is envisaged to lead to an increase in staff from 40 to 44. The Highways Authority have raised no objections to the proposed access onto Waverley Lane. While concerns are raised by local residents over the level of on-street parking, the proposal includes 4.4 metres x 90 metres vision splays and therefore there are no highway safety reasons for refusal. While this splay may be affected by on-street parking during school drop off and pick up times, this is not considered sufficient grounds for refusal.

The proposed access would be 4.8 metres wide and would be ramped due to the difference in levels between the site and the road. A section of the embankment would need to be removed and a retaining wall built either side of the access. The trees along this frontage are protected by a Tree Preservation Order. The application has been amended to locate the access 12.5 metres from the boundary with 42 Waverley Lane at the request of the Council’s Tree Officer. Whilst the loss of four trees is regrettable and will have an impact in the short to medium term, the Tree Officer is satisfied that a condition for a suitable landscape scheme to strengthen existing boundary screening and provide mitigation planting of four Scots Pines of 2.5 metres – 3 metres height and 12 cm-14 cm girth will have a longer term benefit to the public amenity of the area.

The area around the Hospice buildings is already in use as a car park and the new access is unlikely to materially increase the number of traffic movements on the site. Therefore the amenity of surrounding properties, such as 42 Waverley Lane would not be adversely affected. While the plans indicate a reduction in the number of parking spaces, officers consider that the existing portakabin, timber sheds and containers could be removed as shown on Application WA/2004/2859 and therefore a condition is proposed requiring a revised parking layout to be agreed to achieve 53 parking spaces.

The three storage sheds would measure 4.8 square metres each and 2.7 metres high and would be within a timber fence enclosure.

Conclusions

The proposal would comply with the relevant highways requirements and development plan policies and is not considered to adversely affect the character of the area or the amenity of surrounding properties. Accordingly it is recommended that permission be granted.

Summary of Reasons for Granting Planning Permission

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the Development Plan policies; Policies SE4, SE9, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004 and Policies D1, D4, D6, D7, M2 and M14 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.

Recommendation

That planning permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions:-

1. Condition
Reason
2. Condition
Notwithstanding the approved parking layout shown in Drawing No. 0404/P01B, a revised parking layout shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority prior to commencement of development to take into account the development proposed under application WA/2004/2859 and such space shall be retained thereafter free of any impediment to its designated use.

2. Details of the highway requirements necessary for inclusion in any application seeking approval of reserved matters may be obtained from the Transportation Development Control Division of Surrey County Council.

3. The permission hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to carry out works on the highway.

Annexe A

The proposed access has visibility in accordance with the advice given in Places, Streets and Movement, Page 58, Visibility Standards.

The new access is on to a relatively straight stretch of B3001 Waverley Lane which has wide, clear grass verges.

It cannot be considered that the construction of this access will in any way reduce the existing level of highway safety on this stretch of Waverley Lane.

I have investigated the Surrey County Council’s Accident Data Base for the past 5 years. There have been no accidents either in the area of the new access or at the junction of Waverley Lane and Menin Way.

Surrey County Council accepts that there is on-street parking associated with the two schools in this area. Throughout the County, schools generate on-street parking. Most of this parking takes place for 20 minutes in the morning and afternoon periods. That amount of on-street parking could not be considered as a reason to refuse this application. As I have shown above, this situation has not manifested itself in traffic accident.

This Authority considers all planning applications very carefully and is of the opinion that in this case no reason can be found to refuse this application on highway safety grounds. The Planning Committee should be mindful that if this application is refused on highway safety grounds, any subsequent appeal will be required to be defended by a private highway consultant and the outcome may result in costs being awarded against the Borough Council.

Due to substantial local objection it would appear at this point in time that the proposed CPZ may not be implemented.

Introduction

This application was deferred at the last meeting in order to invite a representative of the Highway Authority to attend a meeting to explain the Highway Authority’s position on the application. Unfortunately, due to reduced resources, a representative cannot attend. However, a statement has been submitted, see Annexe A (attached earlier in the agenda)

Description of Site/Background

The site is located at the junction of Waverley Lane and Menin Way in Farnham. The existing access to the site is from Menin Way. The Hospice comprises of a large building with an irregular footprint which has been expanded over the years. There are a substantial number of mature trees around its boundaries which screen the Hospice from most public views.

There have been a number of permissions for extensions, alterations and outbuildings at The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. A separate application has been submitted for the creation of a new access onto Waverley Lane and erection of three storage sheds under application WA/2004/2858 which is under consideration elsewhere on this agenda.

The Proposal

Permission is sought to demolish the existing wing of 279 square metres at the north western corner of the hospice and erect a replacement wing to provide a new therapy and training wing measuring approximately 626 square metres. The existing wing is a flat roof two storey structure with parapet walls and is used for storage. The proposed extension would also be two storeys with a flat roof but would have an enlarged footprint to provide therapy rooms and offices at ground floor with meeting rooms, and toilets at first floor. A staff restroom would be built above the existing kitchen on the central northern wing and a conference/meeting room would be built at first floor infilling a gap between the two wings.

The existing access to the site is from Menin Way. A new access off Waverley Lane is under consideration elsewhere on this agenda. However, this application indicates the layout of parking if the new access was not implemented.

The proposed extension would result in an alteration to the layout of the car parking. The plans indicate that there are a number of existing outbuildings and temporary structures that would be removed as a result of the proposal including a portakabin, 3 timber sheds and 2 containers. The removal of these structures would enable more parking spaces to be provided. The existing layout shows 50 parking spaces and the proposed layout would provide 55 spaces.

Submissions in Support

The applicant has submitted a design statement in support of the two proposals. The proposed extensions are proposed to this scheme is a revision of plans approved under application WA96/1407 of which work began in July 1997.

The secondary access is proposed to rationalise and increase the car parking as the route between the front and rear areas will be replaced with parking bays and so maximise the use of the available space. The Waverley Lane access is proposed to be for staff parking and all servicing. The existing entrance from Menin Way is intended for visitors only.

Relevant Policies

Policies SE4, SE9, DN2, DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004
Policies D1, D4, D6, D7, CF2, M2, M14 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002

Main Planning Issues

The expansion of community facilities is supported in principle by Policy CF2 of the Local Plan subject to a number of criteria.

Character of area

The proposed wing would have a larger footprint than the existing wing although the building is well screened from public views by mature trees around the boundary of the site. The buildings would have matching brickwork and fair faced blockwork to match the existing buildings. Areas of full height glazing have also been introduced on the Menin Way elevation. Officers are satisfied that the design is acceptable in keeping with the varied utilitarian character of the existing hospice building.

Amenity of surrounding residents

Concerns are raised over the scale of enlargements to the hospice over the years and the inability of parking to accommodate the level of usage. There would be no direct overlooking or overbearing impact as a result of the proposed buildings and the level of noise and disturbance from the use would not materially increase. Therefore the amenity of surrounding properties, such as 42 Waverley Lane and Trimmers Fields would not be adversely affected.

Highways and parking provision

The extensions to the existing hospice are envisaged to lead to an increase in staff from 40 to 44. The Highways Authority have raised no objections to the proposal in terms of highway safety or traffic movements. While concerns are raised by local residents over the level of on-street parking, the proposal includes an increase in the number of parking spaces and the traffic levels from the site are not considered to represent grounds for refusal.

However, the number of parking spaces is misleading because if both applications are implemented there would be a change in the parking layout. The new access onto Waverley Lane would result in the loss of approximately two spaces and the remaining layout would be altered to close the route around the new wing. Therefore a condition is proposed on both applications requiring a revised parking layout to be submitted for approval to achieve 53 parking spaces through a combination of the two parking layouts.

Conclusions

The proposal would comply with the relevant highways requirements and development plan policies and is not considered to adversely affect the character of the area or the amenity of surrounding properties. Accordingly it is recommended that permission be granted.

Summary of Reasons for Granting Planning Permission

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the Development Plan policies; Policies SE4, SE9, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004 and Policies D1, D4, D6, D7, CF2, M2 and M14 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

The application site comprises 0.06ha of land. The plot has been formed through the sub-division of the garden of the Hare and Hounds Public House which is located facing The Square in the village of Rowledge. The application site is rectangular in shape and is bounded by the pub car park to the north, the remaining pub garden to the east, the tennis courts and club house on the recreation ground to the west and Recreation Road to the south. The western and southern boundaries are well screened by mature hedgerows interspersed by trees, several of which have been protected by tree preservation order. The eastern and northern boundaries are formed by fencing and garden shrubbery.

The Proposal

It is proposed to erect a pair of semi-detached dwellings on the site, one four bedrooms and an integral single garage, and the other with three bedrooms and no garage. These would have strong gables to the front elevation, which would be tile hung, with a maximum ridge height of 8.5 m and an eaves height of 5 m.

Access would be to Recreation Road with space for additional parking and turning to the front of the dwellings

Submissions in Support

A statement has been submitted in support of the application which may be summarised as follows:-
The proposals comply with local and national policies
The proposal will help the viability of the pub
The dwellings have been designed following a careful analysis of local house types
Trees and hedges will be retained, with development being well clear of their canopies
No harm will occur to the important contribution the pub makes to the village centre

Relevant Policies

Policies SE4 and SE9 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004.
Policies D1, D4, D7 and HE3 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.
Supplementary Planning Guidance – Surrey Design 2002.

Main Planning Issues

The site lies within the developed area of Farnham where development is generally acceptable in principle. Development plan policies and government guidance seek the best use of urban land. The application site has an area of 0.06ha and, at the recommended densities of between 30 and 50 dph, should provide between 2 and 3 dwellings.

The main issues for consideration therefore relate to the impact of the proposed development on the character of the area, including trees and landscape, on residential amenity and traffic.

Recreation Road comprises a mixture of detached and semi-detached dwellings of various ages. With the exception of 2 Cherry Tree Road, most are set in plots with distances to their boundaries that are not dissimilar to those proposed on the application site. It would have an overall road frontage of 26.5m. The distance between the proposed building and the western boundary is 7m, and to the east is 1.7m and 18m to the rear of the pub itself.

In design terms, it is considered that the proposed dwellings would fit in well with the street scene. Whilst they do not mimic other buildings, a number of features have been incorporated into the design to ensure they blend in with the general character of the village. These include the use of prominent gables to the front and rear elevations, tile hanging, tall chimneys and steeply pitched roofs. The Hare and Hounds is a locally listed building and it is considered that the proposals will not detract from the pub or its setting.

Although there is no other residential development on this side of the street, it is not considered that the erection of two dwellings would be harmful to the street scene. The site is well screened to the west and south. Although the roof of the proposed building would be visible in views across the recreation ground, this is not considered to be unusual in village locations such as this. Whilst the mature hedgerow along the roadside would be pierced to form the access to the site, it is not considered that the proposed dwellings would appear unduly intrusive.

The screening to the recreation ground contains a number of trees and most notably a number of mature oaks. Concerns have been expressed by residents that these may be lost as a result of development. However, it is noted that the proposed building would be sufficiently distant from the protected trees so as to ensure that there would be no harm to the tree and, other than 2 small windows on the west elevation, there are no main windows that would be overshadowed by the oaks. Other than 5 small garden trees which are of little merit, it is not proposed to fell any trees on the site.

With regard to the impact on residential amenity, the nearest dwelling is Lindos, which lies directly opposite the application site. This dwelling is set back from the road by 5.6m and would be 22m from the proposed building. This relationship is not unusual in the developed area and it is not considered that there would be any material loss of amenity or privacy.

With regard to the impact on road safety, it is noted that there are no restrictions in place in Recreation Road, which can be heavily parked, particularly at school times. However, once construction is complete, it is not considered that the traffic generated by two dwellings would lead to a material increase in vehicle movements in Recreation Road. There is sufficient space within the front courtyard area for vehicles to turn so that they may leave the site in forward gear and there is sufficient room provided within the application site for the provision of 3 off-street parking spaces, which, with the integral single garage, exceeds the recommended maximum of 1.5 spaces per dwelling.

The comments of local residents are noted and have been addressed in this report. It has been suggested that the building should be reversed, with access to Fullers Road. In design terms this is unacceptable and would result in dwellings that would have their rear elevations towards the road and would have an unsatisfactory means of access through a car park.

Conclusions

Whilst the development will be visible in the street scene, it is not considered that it would cause material harm to either the character of the area or to residential amenity. It is considered that the proposed building is of an appropriate design and that, having regard to the need to make the best use of urban land, the development is acceptable.

SUMMARY OF REASONS FOR GRANTING PERMISSION

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the following Development Plan policies: Policies SE4 and SE9 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004, Policies D1, D4, D7 and HE3 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002, Supplementary Planning Guidance Surrey Design 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.

27.09.04

There have been two recent applications at this site which have been refused. An outline application for eight flats in two buildings following demolition of Nos. 16 and 18 Weybourne Road was refused in March 2004 under WA/2004/0267 and an application for a pair of semi-detached bungalows to the rear of 16&18 was refused in September 2004 under WA/2004/1767. The previous proposal was considered out of keeping with the character of the area and would have led to overlooking, overbearing impact and loss of light to neighbouring properties.

Description of Site/Background

The L-shaped site is situated to the rear of Nos. 16 and 18 Weybourne Road and has a public footpath running along its southern boundary adjacent to The Elm Tree public house. No.20 Weybourne Road, 2 and 2a Lower Weybourne Lane also adjoin the site.

The Proposal

The principle of residential infill development within the built up area and making more efficient use of land is acceptable subject to appropriate design, layout and highways policies.

Permission is sought to demolish a double garage to the rear of No.16 and erect a pair of semi-detached chalet bungalows on land to the rear of Nos. 16 and 18 Weybourne Road. Four parking spaces are provided with two provided in tandem and a turning area. The orientation of the properties is north/south.

The existing access (3 metres wide) would provide access to the two bungalows and new parking spaces to No.16 and No.18 would be served off the drive behind the gardens of Nos. 16 and 18.

Relevant Policies

Policies SE4, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004.
Policies D1, D4, D7, H10, M2 and M14 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.

Main Planning Issues

The main issues to be considered are whether the proposal is appropriate to the site, the impact on amenity of adjoining properties, parking provision and highway safety.

Whether appropriate to the site

The development of two bungalows on backgarden land provides a density of 34 dwellings per hectare. While there are very few examples of backland development in the nearby street pattern, there is a varied building line along Weybourne Road with the adjoining public house and various houses set back some distance from the road. The proposal is considered to be of an appropriate scale and form for the limited site and is not considered detrimental to the character of the area. The development would provide approximately 70 sqm of amenity space to Plot 1 and 110 sqm to Plot 2. However, the donor properties would have a large reduction in garden land to 25 and 37.5 sqm respectively.

Impact on amenity of adjoining properties

The bungalows would be 16 metres from the rear elevation of No.2 Lower Weybourne Lane, which is at a slightly higher level to the site, and 7.2 metres from their rear boundary at the closest point. The proposal is single storey with rooms in the roof. However, the dormer windows would only face into the site and would not cause any overlooking or overbearing impact on surrounding properties.

No.2A Lower Weybourne Lane has a leylandii hedge along the length of the eastern boundary of the site. Plot 2 would be built approximately 1 metre from the hedge with a path along the gap providing access from the parking area to the kitchen of Plot 2. An 1.8 metre fence with evergreen planting in front is proposed along the boundaries to No.20 Weybourne Road and No.2 Lower Weybourne Lane.

Parking provision and highway safety

The parking standards state that a private driveway may accommodate up to 6 dwellings. The minimum width for a domestic driveway is 2.75m. Therefore the existing access has been considered acceptable in terms of highways requirements. Two parking spaces are proposed for each unit and one parking space each is allocated for Nos. 16 and 18.

The Highways Authority have raised no objections to the access and parking arrangements. While concerns have been raised over the loss of the fence to the public footpath, no highway safety issues have been raised by the Highways Officer and the plan indicates that kerb edgings are proposed to define the line of the footpath.

The turning area measures 8m by 8m which provides adequate turning space to highways requirements. However, any informal parking could cause vehicles to reverse out onto Weybourne Road. No garage spaces are proposed in the current scheme which reduces the amount of built development on the site. Therefore it is considered that the parking provision would not be detrimental to the amenity of future occupiers.

Conclusions

The redevelopment of backgarden land for two dwellings is considered an appropriate form of development for the area.

SUMMARY OF REASONS FOR GRANTING PERMISSION

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the following Development Plan policies: Policies SE4, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004, Policies D1, D4, D7, H10, M2 and M14 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

The Coxbridge Estate, currently being developed, is situated on the northern side of the Alton Road (A31). The site, a former sandpit, is to be developed in accordance with an outline consent (WA/2001/2242) dated 8th September 2003. The outline scheme showed the subdivision of the site into 12 plots, four of which are specifically reserved for “bad neighbour” uses in accordance with Local Plan Policy IC7

Condition 18 restricts the overall commercial development, but excluding the area for bad neighbour uses, to 18,000 sq m gross floor area.

The current application relates to Plot 11, which is on the northern side of the site.

The Proposal and Submissions in Support

This application relates to three two-storey office buildings, subdivided into 11 self- contained units suitable for office use. The applicant has explained that it is proposed to provide approximately 2,780 sq metres of gross floor space with 93 car-parking spaces and 22 cycle spaces. The site will access directly onto the main access road which is currently under construction within the business park. The buildings are grouped in a courtyard arrangement around a central landscaped island. The building entrances have been positioned so as to make them visible when entering the site from the access road.

The proposed two-storey buildings are of a contemporary design and the form of the buildings is a simple rectangular shape. The applicant has explained that the proposed elevations reflect the different functions of the building so there are ribbon windows alternated with bands of micro mini rib cladding panels to define the office spaces, whilst a solid terracotta rain screen system is employed to mark each unit’s entrance. Entrances are further differentiated by glazed canopies above the doors with windows at first floor level.

Simple metal clad mono-pitched roofs are proposed. The applicants believe that the use of different elements break up the overall mass of the buildings as well as offering rhythm to the building form individually and collectively.

93 car parking spaces, including 6 disabled spaces and storage for 22 cycles is proposed. Bin storage areas are proposed close to each of the three buildings further details of these will be required to be submitted by condition.

The applicant has submitted details of levels and a schematic drawing showing the relationship of the buildings to the bank. The applicant is being asked to confirm that the schematic drawing is based on an accurate survey, as it is important to understand the relationship of the buildings to the height of the adjacent bank on the north side. From the information available at present it appears as if the new buildings will be a minimum of 1.8 metres and a maximum of 5.6 metres below the level of the bank.

Relevant Policies

Policies LO1, LO4, LO7, SE1, SE2, SE4, SE6, SE8, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004;
Policies C2, C3, C5, C7, IC5, IC7, C1, D1, D4, D14, C7, M2, M5 and M14 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.

Main Planning Issues

1, The gross floor area of the proposal.
2. The height.
3. The form of the development.
4. Landscaping issues.
5. Parking.
6. Sustainability issues
7. Other matters

1. The Gross Floor Area

The outline permission also sets an upper limit for the estate excluding the “bad neighbour” area of 18,000 sq m. The current proposal relates to a building of 2,780 square metres and is appropriate within overall floor space permitted on the site.

2. The Height Your officers have always been concerned that the development of this site, which is also designated in the Local Plan as an area for Landscape Enhancement (Policy C6) should not be intrusive in the surrounding countryside (AGLV). The former pit is surrounded by vegetated banks, which will be managed for wildlife and landscaping purposes. A schematic cross section of the development shows that the height of the enterprise centre will be below the northern bank and clarification on the accuracy of the information is being sought. The southern bank of the site will screen views from the A31, except at the entrance to the site and views from the wider area should be obscured by the combination of the southern bank and the dense vegetation already established on it.

3. The Form of the Development

The siting of the buildings to form a courtyard will provide ample space in the centre of the site for the parking of vehicles and the landscaping of the site.

4. Landscaping Issues

The current proposal has been located to ensure that it does not encroach on the strategic landscaped area of the northern boundary of the site as specified in the outline consent. There will be landscaped areas around the boundary of the site and in the centre. Native species are proposed which are appropriate for the site. Details of the spacing and size of stock are required and a condition covers this.

5. Parking and Other Issues

93 car parking spaces are to be provided. The current Surrey County Council standards, which are expressed as maximum provision rather than minimum, would allow a maximum of 93 spaces based on the basis of one space per 30 sq m floor area.
6. Sustainability issues

Policy SE2, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation, of the new Surrey Structure Plan requires new commercial development to be designed to take account of the need to use renewable resources. The applicant has submitted the following information about ways in which sustainability issues have been considered.
7. Other matters Matters relating to, drainage, contaminated land and ecology are covered by conditions in the outline consent.

Conclusions

Your officers consider that the proposed enterprise development will provide accommodation, which complies with the outline consent.

SUMMARY OF REASONS FOR GRANTING PERMISSION

The development hereby granted has been assessed against the following Development Plan policies: Policies LO1, LO4, LO7, SE1, SE2, SE4, SE6, SE8, DN2 and DN3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004, Policies C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, IC5, IC7, D1, D4, D14, M2, M5 and M14 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.
