Case Officer: Robert Peel

Status: Decided

Decision: Refused - Outline

This decision is subject to the following conditions:

  1. It is considered that due to the size and shape of the plot and the close proximity to adjoining dwellings and the boundaries of adjoining dwellings, the proposed bungalow would result in an overdevelopment of a very restricted site. This would result in a cramped form of development lacking adequate private amenity space caused as a result of overlooking from adjoining properties and would be out of character with the pattern of development in the surrounding area. Furthermore, the siting and elevated position, in relation to no.s 50 and 51 Old Coach Road, as a result of the difference in ground levels, would result in overlooking and loss of privacy and amenity to the rear of these properties from the proposed dwelling. The proposal would therefore be contrary to policies D11 of the Worcestershire County Structure Plan, policies H8 and H21 of the Wychavon District Local Plan and policies GD2, SUR3 and SUR5 of the Wychavon District Local Plan Review First Deposit.
