Minutes:

Erection of 7 two storey dwelling houses and associated garaging, together with the

construction of a new access off Hyde Street, parking, landscaping and all enabling works.

 

Speakers

Parish Council: Andrew Parkinson (Landmark Chambers on behalf of Aston Clinton PC)

Applicant: Mr Steven Kerry

 

Resolved

 

That application 19/00668/APP be refused for the following reason: The proposal is  contrary to Policy H2 of the Aston Clinton Neighbourhood Plan in that it proposes a quantum of development which exceeds the threshold of 5 or less dwellings set within policy H2, and therefore undermines  the housing strategy for limited infill within the settlement boundary .   Thus,  the proposal would  fail to accord with overall vision for the Aston Clinton Neighbourhood Plan.   Moreover, the quantum of development  would  lead to an increased density within the site, resulting in a contrived and a more tightly compact layout and exhibits poor design in  the form of triple tandem parking, causing detrimental harm to the character and appearance of the local area. The development would not represent sustainable development due to its failure to comply with policies H2, HQD1 and HQD2 of the Aston Clinton Parish Neighbourhood Plan, and the advice within the National Planning Policy Framework.

 

Note: Councillors Khan and Ward both left the meeting following the vote on the above application.
