Householder Application - Proposed extension of dwelling at Jubilee Lodge, The Green, Froggatt, S32 3ZA (NP/DDD/0621/0615 JK)


Members had visited the site on the previous day.


The Planning Officer introduced the item. Approval had previously been granted for an extension in 2009 which was considered to be an improvement to the property but work had only partly commenced on that approval and this application was for a larger extension to that approved in 2009.


A similar scheme had been refused under delegated powers in early 2021 and some changes had been made to the plans  in this latest application..


The structure was a non-traditional building with several extensions added at various times.  The application to extend again was an opportunity to enhance the appearance but the current scheme but did not meet with design guidance regarding scale and mass.


The Planning Officer asked for updates to be noted on page 97 of the report where the word ‘not’ had been missed from the last sentence of paragraph 99 and page 94, paragraph 68 only policy L1(a) was relevant to this report.


The following spoke under the Public Participation at Meetings Scheme:


·         Mr John Youatt, Supporter

·         Mr Nigel Anderson, Supporter

·         Mr Philip Hardwick, Brother of the Applicant, Supporter


The Planning Officer confirmed that no response had been received from the Parish Council regarding the application.


Members felt that the present application had a negative impact on the host building, unlike the application in 2009.


A motion to refuse the application in line with Officer recommendation was moved, seconded, put to the vote and carried.




That the application be REFUSED for the following reason









The scale, massing and design of the extensions are not subservient to the host property. They would represent a dominant and intrusive form development which would detract from the host dwelling and cause harm the character and appearance of the street scene, the landscape setting and the significance of designated Froggatt Conservation Area contrary to Core Strategy policies GSP1, GSP3, L1 and L3, Development Management policies DMC3, DMC5, DMC8 and DMH7 our adopted design guide Supplementary Planning Document and the National Planning Policy Framework.
