Minutes:

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

 

Mrs Jackson, an objector, Councillor Douglass of Teston Parish Council and Councillor Mrs Gooch (Visiting Member) 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 the proposal would result in unacceptable overlooking of the immediate rear amenity area of the neighbouring property ‘Strathmore’ due to the proximity and height of the decking resulting in harm to amenity contrary to policies ENV28 and H33 of the Maidstone Borough-Wide Local Plan 2000, policy DM1 of the emerging Local Plan and provisions of the NPPF.

 

RESOLVED:  That permission be refused for the following reason:

 

The proposal would result in unacceptable overlooking of the immediate rear amenity area of the neighbouring property ‘Strathmore’ due to the proximity and height of the decking resulting in harm to amenity contrary  to policies ENV28 and H33 of the Maidstone Borough-Wide Local Plan 2000, policy DM1 of the emerging Local Plan and provisions of the NPPF.
