22 Red Barn Road, Brightlingsea

Application No:
Application For:
Proposed alterations, front and rear extensions and garden room.
Mr J Crozier
Decided On:
September 30, 2021
TCC Decision:
Policy SP7 states that all new development should respond positively to local character and context to preserve and enhance the quality of existing places and their environs. Emerging Policy SPL3 seeks to provide new development which is well designed and maintains or enhances local character and distinctiveness. Saved Policy QL11 (part superseded) supports these considerations. The proposed extension by virtue of its poor design, size, scale, bulk, height and massing is considered to have a materially harmful impact upon the character and appearance of the main dwelling and the surrounding area. The excessive depth of the rear extension, contrived roof extensions and mismatch of external materials, would result in an overly dominant and contrived addition, lacking coherence and subservience to the existing bungalow and would be incongruous in nature. The extension would also result in a dominant and overbearing impact, harmful to the residential amenity of the neighbouring occupiers at Nos. 20 and 24 Red Barn Road. For the reasons set out above, the poor design and form of the proposal together with its over dominant nature and siting, would will result in an unacceptable and unduly prominent form of development, being harmful to visual amenity and the character and appearance of the area, contrary to the aforementioned Development Plan Policies SP7 and QL11 and emerging policy SP3 of the Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond Publication Draft.
