PROPOSAL

Erection of a 4 bedroom dwelling with sewage treatment plant and associated soft and hard landscaping

 

AMENDMENTS

None.

 

CASE OFFICER

Graham Melton

 

REFUSED for the following:

1.

Notwithstanding the amendments undertaken, including the repositioning of the proposed dwelling and the alterations to red clay tiles and a hipped roof form, the proposed development would still, by virtue of the proximity of the blank, two storey gable end of the proposed dwelling in relation to the relatively short rear garden of “Bowmans”, result in an unacceptable feeling of enclosure that would have an overbearing impact to occupiers of that property. The proposal would therefore result in an adverse effect on the living conditions of the occupiers of “Bowmans” contrary to Policy LHW4 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan (2016).

2.

The proposed development by means of its nature, location and scale could have likely significant effects upon the nearby Solent and Southampton Water European Designated Site which is designated for its conservation importance. In the absence of information relating to the development achieving nutrient neutrality or onsite/off site mitigation, the applicant has failed to satisfy the Council that the proposal would not adversely affect the special interest of the Solent and Southampton Water European Designated Site, therefore the application is contrary to Policies COM2 and E5 of the adopted Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan (2016) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended).

3.

The site lies within close proximity to the New Forest SPA which is designated for its conservation importance. In the absence of a legal agreement, the application has failed to secure the required mitigation measures, in accordance with the Council's adopted 'New Forest SPA Mitigation - Interim Framework'. As such, it is not possible to conclude that the development would not have an in-combination likely significant effect on the interest features of this designated site, as a result of increased recreational pressure. The proposed development is therefore contrary to the Council's adopted 'New Forest SPA Mitigation - Interim Framework', Policies COM2 and E5 of the adopted Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan (2016) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended).
