Restricted access during building work to the objectors property as well as obstructions to vehicle traffic, Noise emanating from builders music, Restriction in visibility from the objectors drive when existing his driveway, and Incorrect details on plans.
In assessing this application the Southern Area Local Plan policies for established residential areas are relevant. These policies seek to protect residential areas by opposing developments that adversely affect the character and amenity of the area. In assessing the proposals in detail, they are considered to be acceptable in terms of the design and scale and would integrate satisfactorily with the existing property and street scene. Furthermore, it is also considered that the proposal would not result in any significant detrimental effects to the surrounding properties.
In relation to the grounds of objection, it should be noted that the first concern is not a material consideration and as such can not be taken into account when determining this application. If a statutory noise nuisance is created, the council’s Pollution Control Team should be informed and will address the issue. Point two is also a non material planning consideration for the above stated reason. Thirdly, there are no proposals to alter the existing driveway. The visibility splays currently enjoyed by the objector will therefore not be affected by the side extension. Finally, the details on the plan were adequate for the purpose of determining the application, the only discrepancy relates to an incorrect street name.
The letter of representation has been considered and no material considerations were found to merit this application being refused. The scale and design of the application are considered to be complementary to the existing dwelling and would thus not result in an incongruous feature within the street scene. It is therefore recommended that the application be granted subject to the conditions below.
Reason: To accord with the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997
Reason: In the interest of the amenity of the site and the general area.
