Description of Site/Background

Garden Cottage Farm is located to the southeast of Chiddingfold, close to the county boundary. Originally two dwellings, the cottage has been converted to a single dwelling. In addition, it will be seen from the above history that a number of permissions have been granted for the erection of outbuildings and agricultural buildings around the dwelling.

The Proposal

To the south east of the dwelling and a distance of 35 metres there is an L-shaped lambing barn which was granted planning permission in 1999. It is proposed to change the use of the land around the building and to also change the use of the barns to provide a games room and changing area for a proposed swimming pool. A new Klargester waste disposal system would also be installed adjacent to the barns.

Relevant Policies

Surrey Structure Plan 1994 – Policies PE3, PE7.
Main Planning Issues

Change of use of the buildings – It is necessary to consider the proposal in the light of Policy RD7 – the re-use of rural buildings. The buildings were originally erected for purposes connected with the agricultural holding. However, agricultural activities on the site have diminished, largely as a result of foot and mouth restrictions, BSE and the general fall in prices for livestock. The remaining buildings on the site are considered adequate for the amount of farming the land can support. i) 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. - The proposal involves the conversion of the barn within the existing shell of the building. Other than the insertion of two glazed doors and the erection of a stove pipe, the external appearance of the building would not be altered.

ii) The building 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 building is considered to be in keeping with its surroundings.

iii) The proposal development will not introduce an activity, which will adversely affect the character or amenities of the area. - The proposed residential use would be ancillary to the residential use of the main house.

iv) The proposed development will not be materially detrimental to the amenities or privacy of nearby properties. – The development would comply with this criteria.

v) The existing building is in a sound condition and capable of being converted without the need for demolition or extensive re-building. – The building complies with this criteria.

It is therefore considered that the re-use of the building would comply with Policy RD7.

Change of use of the land – the area of land to be used for residential purposes, comprising 0.08 (0.2 acres) ha. Whilst changes of use of land to residential purposes are normally resisted, in this instance the officers consider that, should Members find the change of use of the building to be acceptable, then the use of the land immediately around it should also change. Control of this land may be retained through conditions limiting the erection of further buildings, enclosures, etc. The applicant has been advised to amend the application so as to reduce the area of proposed garden land to an area closely drawn around the existing lambing shed and the proposed swimming pool. An oral update will be made on this point.

Bruton Knowles have been consulted on the application. It is their opinion that the loss of the barn and the land from agriculture will have no adverse affect on the efficiency or productivity of the holding. There are a number of other buildings available for agricultural use and, as the farm has contracted considerably since 2000, it is not considered that the change of use of the barn would lead to pressures for further buildings in the future.

Conclusions

As the site lies outside the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a new building could be erected within the residential curtilage without the need for planning permission. The officers therefore consider that it would be preferable to re-use an existing building rather than to add to the number of buildings on the site, and to include the surrounding area of land within the residential curtilage.

Relevant History

WA00/1034Change of use of ground floor from retail (Class A1) to restaurant (Class A3) - food and drink
Permitted 17/8/00

Description of Site/Background

No 4/5 Hampton Terrace comprises a double fronted lock-up shop, forming part of a small parade of shops which provide a range of mostly A1 uses, although a number are currently vacant. Above the shops are a number of self-contained flats. Planning permission was granted for the change of use of nos 4-5 to A3 use, but with a condition preventing the provision of a take-away service.

The Proposal

Permission is sought for the removal of the condition and to allow an ancillary takeaway facility.

Submissions in Support

The A3 use granted permission at no 2 Hampton Terrace originally included a condition preventing takeaway use (WA01/515). This condition was removed under WA02/1093 on 22 August 2002.


Relevant Policies

Main Planning Issues

The main issues to consider are whether the removal of the condition would have an adverse impact on the amenities of local residents and whether parking and access are satisfactory.

In the past, in dismissing appeals for A3 uses in Beacon Hill, the Inspectors have had regard to the potential level of disturbance arising from visitors to a restaurant. It was considered that an A3 use would be intrusive in that the character of the area changes in the evenings to one that is essentially residential in nature.

It is therefore necessary to balance the amenity issues against any benefit that may accrue to the general viability and vitality of the area for the premises to be in active use rather than to remain vacant. In the past, Members have been supportive of efforts to revitalise this parade of shops and it is considered that whilst there are a number of flats over the shops in this parade, a judgement should be made as to whether there would be any additional disturbance from an ancillary takeaway facility as compared to the level of activity generated by a restaurant without takeaway.

The officers consider that the number of visitors to the premises seeking takeaway food would likely be greater than the number of customers eating in the restaurant in these small premises. The level of disturbance from car doors banging and engines is likely to be materially greater and would have an adverse impact on the amenities of the local residents.

It should be noted that a takeaway facility has been allowed at 2 Hampton Terrace, two doors away. This was conditioned so as not to be available outside the hours of 11.00 and 23.45. Officers are, however, concerned at the potential concentration of takeaway facilities and the resultant adverse effect on residential amenity.

It is therefore considered that, on balance, the harm from the take-away element would be material and would outweigh any benefit to the vitality and viability of this parade of shops.

Description of Site/Background

Weydown Lodge, a large detached house, is situated on the eastern side of Weydown Road some 180m north of the junction with Derby Road. The site is wholly within the developed area of Haslemere and within an area identified as being of low residential density. The application site relates to a tract of land to the south of the dwelling measuring some 0.16 hectares and currently forming part of its garden. Permission was granted in January 2003 for the erection of a detached dwelling on this plot (WA02/1117 refers).

The Proposal

Permission is sought for the erection of a two-storey dwelling, with integral double garage, with a total habitable floor area of 234 m2. The scheme is essentially the same as that approved under WA02/1117 except that the current scheme includes a rear conservatory of approximately 14m2 to a height of 3.6 metres.

Relevant Policies

Environmental Implications – Policy PE10 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994, Policy SE4 of the Surrey Structure Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002 and Policies D1, D4 and BE6 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.

Main Planning Issues

The site lies within the Developed Area of Haslemere, wherein the principle of development can be acceptable, subject to its visual impact and effect on the amenities of adjacent occupiers. However, the low density Policy BE6 resists infilling where it would be detrimental to the character of the area. The principle of the erection of a detached dwelling on this plot was established by planning permission WA02/1117. The principal test for members is whether the inclusion of a modest conservatory should mean that a different decision should be taken on the proposal as that taken on WA02/1117.

The concerns of neighbouring residential occupiers to the south-west are noted. However, considering that the principle of a house has already been approved, officers consider that the conservatory would not cause any materially greater harm sufficient to justify refusal. The conservatory element would not cause any material harm to residential or visual amenity.

Recommendation

That, subject to the applicant first entering a legal agreement with the Council’s costs to be borne by the applicant to ensure that planning permission WA01/1690 and WA02/1117 is not implemented, permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions:-

1. Standard approval of materials (4.4) 2. Standard restrictions on permitted development (11.1) 3. Standard tree protection (25.2) 4. The hedge along the frontage of the appeal site, where shown to be retained, shall be retained at a height of not less than 2.8m above the level of the adjoining footway. 5. No development shall take place, until there has been submitted to and approved by the local planning authority, a scheme of landscaping, which shall include indications of all existing trees and hedgerows on the land, and details of those to be retained. The scheme should incorporate the position, species and size of minimally two new trees at the site frontage and planting details for screening on the north and south site boundary. 6. All planting, seeding or turfing comprised in the approved details of landscaping shall be carried out in the first planting and seeding seasons following the completion of the development and any trees or plants which within a period of five years from the completion of the development die, are removed or become seriously damaged or diseased shall be replaced in the next planting season with others of similar size and species, unless the local planning authority gives written consent to variation. 7.

Description of Site/Background

New Barn is a detached dwelling with integral garage located on the west side of Farnham Lane. The property is chalet bungalow in style, with low eaves, to the front elevation and two storey at the rear. The site is approximately 0.44 hectares in size.

The Proposal

Permission is sought for the erection of a two storey extension to the south east of the existing property and the insertion of a dormer window in the north east elevation, following the demolition of the existing single storey utility room. The development would provide a family room, utility room and kitchen extension on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Submissions in Support

In support of the scheme, the applicant has put forward the following points:

1. The applicants have lived at New Barn for the past four years. The house is ideally located for Mrs May, who is a GP at Haslemere Health Centre, as she is five minutes from work and is sometimes called to Haslemere Hospital at night and weekends. 2. As the applicants both work full time relatives have to stay during school holidays to look after their two children. As New Barn currently only has three bedrooms this necessitates the children having to move into their parents room which will become more difficult as they get older.

3. Mr May suffers from myocarditis. His illness leaves him easily fatigued and he may need to consider live-in domestic assistance, such as an au pair, in the future.

4. The proposal will improve the appearance of the current “lopsided” house, whilst not detracting from the openness of the Green Belt, disrupting the hedgerow or imposing on the neighbours in any way.

Relevant Policies

Surrey Structure Plan 1994 – Policies PE2 and PE7

Surrey Structure Plan (Deposit Draft) 2002 – LO4 and SE8

Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002 – C1, C3, RD2, D1 and D4


Main Planning Issues

The site is located within the Green Belt and an area of AGLV treated as being within the Surrey Hills AONB, beyond the confines of any settlement.

The principal issues are as follows:

(a) Extension Policy

The original habitable floor area of the property measured 166.73m2. Under WA83/0003 and WA93/1562 an additional 28.785m2 were added. The current proposal seeks to add a further 100.985m2. The cumulative increase in habitable floor space will be 106.385m2 or a 63.8% increase. This figure does not correspond with the agent’s calculation of 43.9% increase. The agent, however, in his calculation of the original habitable floor area of the property, has included the integral garage, the integral fuel store (subsequently converted to habitable but no date provided) and a store within the roofspace.

The proposal clearly materially conflicts with the recommended guideline figure of 40% increase in habitable floorspace in Policy RD2. The proposed extensions would create a considerable increase in the bulk, scale and mass of the south east elevation, over-elongating the ridge and footprint of the property and bringing it closer to the eastern boundary adjacent to the road. These extensions would amount to a disproportionate increase over the original dwelling.

As a result, the proposal would, it is considered, materially conflict with Green Belt policy for extensions.

(b) The Existence of Special Circumstances

The officers note the basis upon which the proposal has been made. The circumstances of the applicant are clearly serious ones and the officers have great sympathy with the position. Nevertheless, members are reminded of the advice within PPG1 that personal circumstances should rarely be allowed to override more permanent considerations. The situation of the current owners is a sensitive one but the permanent impact of the proposal upon the openness and visual amenity of the Green Belt will remain long after the current situation has changed. Moreover, if permitted, the decision could set a precedent for other cases based on personal circumstances, which cumulatively would undermine the principles of Green Belt policy.

Recommendation

That permission be REFUSED for the following reasons:

1. Standard Green Belt (Outside Settlements) (R1.1) 2. Standard AGLV (R1.4)

3. Standard Extensions Policy (R5.1) *(form, size, mass, scale, character, floor area) *(scale and character of the existing building and rural character of the area)

Description of Site/Background

Number 11 Sandrock is a detached dwelling situated to the north of the junction with Courthill Road. The application site is a parcel of land immediately to the south of the existing dwelling. The site has a road frontage with Sandrock of approximately 23 m in width and extends to a depth of 47m. The land falls from south to north. The site is set above the road level of Sandrock.

The Proposal

This application, which is in outline with all details reserved, seeks to renew a previously granted permission for a detached single storey dwelling and garage with access from Sandrock.

Main Planning Issues

Planning permission was originally granted with outline planning permission in 1981 and this application has been subsequently renewed six times since that time. The site lies within the settlement area of Haslemere where in principle new residential development is acceptable. It is not considered that there have been any material change in circumstances since the last renewal to justify a change in recommendation.
