Agenda item

3 Alan Road, Wimbledon, SW19 7PT

Application number: 20/P1701

Ward:  Village

Recommendation: GRANT Planning permission subject to conditions


RESOLVED that application number 20/P1701 be GRANTED planning permission subject to conditions.


Proposal: new basement extension, single storey rear extension with roof lantern, replacement of side garage, replacement windows on front and rear elevation, new windows in side elevations, erection of dormer on front roof slope, replacement of roof lights, replacement of two storey rear bay windows and formation of new oriel window.


The Committee noted the report and presentation of the Planning officer, and the modifications contained in the supplementary agenda.


Two local residents had registered to speak in objection. Amongst the points raised, they noted that whilst development on the site was welcome, the scale and size of these proposals would change the character of the area and affect neighbouring properties in terms of reduced natural light and privacy. Concerns were also raised regarding the disruption caused by basement excavations.


Supporting the application, the applicant’s agent noted that the proposal being considered by the Committee addressed all the objections raised with previous applications and feedback from the pre-application process. The agent also stated that the proposal enhanced the appearance and character of the property and, having consulted with planning officers, would have no impact of neighbouring properties’ daylight with the basement having minimal impact on neighbours.


Addressing concerns regarding the basement, the planning officer noted that whilst this was not grounds for refusing the application, relevant conditions could be imposed, and these indeed had been included in the recommendation. Responding to questions from the committee, the planning officer also confirmed that the proposal was materially different to previous applications for the site.


At the conclusion of the debate, the Chair moved to a vote and it was


RESOLVED that application number 20/P1701 be GRANTED planning permission subject to conditions.
