Submissions in Support

What has been built is the same as would have resulted with the implementation of that originally approved under reference WA/2003/0758

In this instance, it is clear that the 10% guideline of Policy RD2A is breached indicating in policy terms the dwelling would be materially larger than the dwelling it replaces and therefore in conflict with Policy RD2A.

A materially larger dwelling could only be permitted if it could satisfactorily be demonstrated that very special circumstances exist which would warrant setting aside of the normal strict policies of restraint.

A planning application has already been approved for an extension resulting in a dwelling of very similar dimensions to that now built.

The objective of the Local Planning Authority is to prevent inappropriate development in the Green Belt. The Local Planning Authority has already accepted, appropriate development, a similar sized property with the permission for an extension (permission WA03/0758).

Officers consider that very special circumstances apply and that the replacement dwelling built would not be materially larger than that would result with the implementation of the extension permitted under WA/2003/0758.

The design and appearance of the house will be larger than that original approved under WA/2003/2337 for a replacement dwelling, nevertheless, the character of the locality is one of large dwellings within large plots and therefore this proposal would not be harmful to the character of the area. Due to the extensive plot, orientation and distance between neighbouring properties there will be no detrimental impact to the amenities of the neighbouring properties.
