PROPOSAL

Erection of one dwelling

 

AMENDMENTS

Amended information received 31.10.22

 

CASE OFFICER

Paul Goodman

 

REFUSED for the reasons: 

1.

By virtue of the scale, bulk and design of the proposal the development would be detrimental to the special architectural and historic importance of the King Johns House heritage asset and its setting. The development would result in less than substantial harm to the significance of this designated heritage asset and the conservation area in which it sits. The public benefits arising from the development would not outweigh this harm. As such, the proposal is considered to be contrary to Policies E9 and COM2 of the Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan (2016), in addition to paragraph 202 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

2.

The proposed development by means of it nature, location and scale could have likely significant affects upon the nearby Solent and Southampton Water European Designated Site which is designated for its conservation importance. In the absence of a completed legal agreement securing the proposed 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 the 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', Policy E5 of the adopted Test Valley Borough Revised Local Plan 2016, and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 (as amended).
