Case Officer: Robert Peel
Decision: Refused - Planning
This decision is subject to the following conditions:
The proposed double garage would result in an unsympathetic addition to the street scene by virtue of its siting, scale, design and forward projection from the main building towards the front boundary of the stie and the public highway and its forward position in relation to the adjoining properties. As a result, the garage would appear unduly prominent in the street scene and out of character with surrounding development, would adversely affect the visual amenities of the locality and would fail to preserve or enhance the character of the Conservation Area. The proposal is therefore contrary to Polices CTC19 and CTC20 of the Worcestershire County Structure Plan and Polices CB3 and CB4 of the adopted Wychavon District Local Plan and Polices GD2 and SUR1A of the Wychavon District Local Plan Revised Deposit.
The proposal, if approved, would set the standards for similar applications, making it very difficult for the Council to refuse planning permission for similar proposals and so undermine the established Local Plan Polices. This would be likely to lead to further pressure for similar detached garages to other properties in the road and Conservation Area, which would harm its character.
