Council Refuses Several Planning Applications

Croydon Council has refused several planning applicants. The Residents Associations Joint Planning Committee welcomes what appears to be a trend in refusals and the grounds on which they are based. The reasons are ones that those submitting  need to take into account before they submit planning applications in the future.

149 Covington Way (16/03358/LE)

Application for a lawful development certificate (existing) for retention of conservatory. Refused.  Insufficient evidence has been provided to satisfy the Local Planning Authority that the development has been in existence for more than four years before the date of this application.’

Erection of single rear extension and two storey side extension.

‘The proposal would not respect or positively respond to the character, scale and original integrity of the host building and architectural rhythm of the terraced houses or surrounding area, and would be detrimental to the appearance of the surrounding area by reason of its design and size and would thereby conflict with Policies UD2 and UD3 of the Croydon Replacement Unitary Development Plan (The Croydon Plan 2006) Saved Policies 2013; Policies 7.1, 7.4, 7.6 and 7.8 of the London Plan 2015; Policy SP4.1 of the Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies 2013 and Supplementary Planning Document 2 ‘Residential Extensions and Alterations’.

  2. The development would be detrimental to the amenities of the adjoining occupiers by reason of visual intrusion, dominance, loss of daylight/sunlight, noise disturbance and loss of privacy and would thereby conflict with Policies UD2, UD8 and H2 of the Croydon Replacement Unitary Development Plan (The Croydon Plan 2006) Saved Policies 2013 and Policies 7.6 and 7.15 of the London Plan 2015.
  3. The development would result in sub-standard accommodation for new occupiers by reason of insufficient light, outlook and privacy and poor quality communal external amenity space and would thereby conflict with Policy SP2.6 of the Croydon Local Plan Strategic Policies 2013, Policy 7.6 of the London Plan 2015.’
