        1. The proposed development, by reason of the size, height, bulk, massing and form of dwellings proposed would appear overlarge and to overdevelop the area and would materially detract from the character and appearance of the area and thereby conflict with the intention of the LPA to protect and enhance the visual character of the settlement, as set out in Policy PE10 of the Surrey Structure Plan 1994, Policy SE3 of the Surrey Structure Plan (Deposit Draft) 2001 and Policies D1 and D4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.

        2. Having regard to the details of the development proposed and its relationship with nearby residential properties, it is considered that the proposal would represent an un-neighbourly form of development and thereby be contrary to Policies D1 and D4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002.
