Refused, reasons to be set out in the minutes.
The Committee considered application 21/03444/F for the demolition of an existing dilapidated and fire damaged single level dwelling - Class C3(a) - and erection of 4 No. flats in single, two level building - Class C3(a) at 7 Churchill Road, Kidlington, OX5 1BN for Mr Jack Piccaver. This was a resubmission of application 21/01212/F.
Councillor Billington, local ward member, addressed the Committee in objection to the application.
Councillor Middleton, local ward member, addressed the Committee in objection to the application.
Jack Piccaver, the applicant, addressed the Committee in support of the application.
In reaching its decision the Committee considered the officer’s report and presentation, the addresses of the public speakers and the written updates.
(1) That application 21/03444/F be refused for the following reason:
1. By virtue of its size and massing, the proposed development would have an overbearing impact on number 9 Churchill Road that would be detrimental to the living conditions of the neighbouring occupier through loss of light and outlook. The proposal is therefore contrary to Saved Policy C30 of the Cherwell Local Plan 1996, Policy ESD15 of the Cherwell Local Plan 2011-2031 Part 1 and Government guidance contained with the National Planning Policy Framework.
