Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the Head of Planning and Development.

 

Mr Pettit, an objector, Mrs Bowdery, on behalf of Boxley Parish Council, and Mr Simmons, the applicant, addressed the meeting.

 

Contrary to the recommendation of the Head of Planning and Development, the Committee agreed to refuse permission.  In making this decision, Members felt that notwithstanding the one metre set back, the original grounds of refusal had not been overcome and therefore the scale and mass of the extension was considered to result in a significantly overbearing impact on no. 4 The Covert contrary to policies DM1 and DM9 of the Maidstone Borough Local Plan 2017.

 

RESOLVED:  That permission be refused for the following reason:

 

Notwithstanding the one metre set back, the original grounds of refusal have not been overcome and therefore the scale and mass of the extension is considered to result in a significantly overbearing impact on no. 4 The Covert contrary to policies DM1 and DM9 of the Maidstone Borough Local Plan 2017.
