08/P/00237  72 Waltham Avenue, GU2 9QE.  Erection of a pair of semi-detached houses, following demolition of existing dwelling and garage. [Registered 12/02/08]  4th attempt.  Refused at Planning Committee 09-Apr-08.  By virtue of their width, orientation and the location of the proposed parking would result in a cramped appearance and an overdevelopment of the site.  The parking layout as proposed would result in an unsatisfactory and impractical arrangement due to the narrowness of the width of the land and the conflict between users of the car parking spaces reversing out, combined with tandem parking proposed for the three bedroom house.

06/P/00330 - The Gables.  Erection of 11 dwellings (4x2 bed & 7x3 bed), vehicle access & 20 car parking spaces & associated landscaping (amendments to Planning Permission 05/P/00763) - Application refused for reasons given below.  But the original approval for 05/P/00763 still stands.

1. The proposed development represents an unacceptable increase in the bulk and massing of development on the site to the detriment of the character of the site and wider area and the amenities of neighbouring properties. As such, the proposals are contrary to Policies SE4 of the Surrey Structure Plan and G1(3), G5 and H4 of the Guildford Borough Local Plan 2003 and the SPG Residential Design Guide 2004.

2. The application contains insufficient information to properly assess the impact of the development on existing natural features of the site, in particular trees and hedges. As such, the development is contrary to Policy G1(12) of the Guildford Borough Local Plan 2003.

3. The applicant has failed to demonstrate the sustainability credentials of the proposals and how Policies SE1, SE2 and SE3 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004, Policies G1 and G5 of the Guildford Borough Local Plan, Principles 4.1 to 4.6 of the Surrey Design Guide 2002 and the SPG Sustainable Design and Construction 2005 will be complied with.

4. The Local Planning Authority is unable to satisfy itself that the proposals would not have an adverse effect on the integrity of the Thames Heath Basins Special Protection Area, which lies within 2km of the site. In this respect, significant concerns remain with regard to the adverse effect on the integrity of the Special Protection Area, including impact on hydrology of the area, the deterioration of the quality of the habitat and increased disturbance to birds. No mitigation measures are proposed and as such the development is contrary to Policy SE7 of the Surrey Structure Plan 2004 and policies NE1 and NE4 of the Guildford Borough Local Plan 2003.

5. The application has failed to address the need for contributions to open space and public art. As such it is contrary to Policies G6 and R3 of the Guildford Borough Local Plan 2003.

05/P/00763    The Gables.  Erection of eleven, two and three bedroom dwellings, cycle store, parking vehicle access and associated landscaping following demolition of 56 Grange Road and 71 Waltham Avenue. [Registered 18/04/2005]- Approved on Tues 19th July 2005.

The following details were copied from the GBC web-site

Informatives for Application No: 05/P/00763

1. The applicant is advised to contact the Director of Environmental and Planning Services, Guildford Borough Council, at an early stage to discuss naming and numbering of the development.

2. The site should be assessed for any asbestos containing materials prior to demolition and construction activities. Any work with asbestos must be carried out in accordance with the Asbestos at work regulations 2002 and Approved Code of Practice (L27).

3. Due to the proximity of residential accommodation there should be no burning of waste material on the site.

4. Due to the proximity of residential accommodation any works of demolition and construction including any piling work required should be conducted in accordance with BS5228 (parts 1 and 4) for noise control. Only silenced piling equipment should be used so as to minimise noise disturbance.

5. During demolition or construction phases, adequate control precautions should be taken in order to control the spread of dust on the site, so as to prevent a nuisance to residents in the locality. This may involve the use of dust screens and importing a water supply to wet areas of the site to inhibit dust.

6. Before development commences , details shall be submitted to and approved by the Engineering Manager, Guildford Borough Council, showing the provision for the disposal of surface water emanating from this development. Provision for the disposal of surface water shall be made at the initial stage of development of the site and shall be completed and be operational prior to any impermeable drained area being created on the site.

7. Design standards for the layout and construction of access roads and junctions, including the provision of visibility zones, shall be in accordance with the requirements of the County Highway Authority.

8. The Highway Authority has no objection to the proposed development, subject to the above conditions but, if it is the applicant's intention to offer any roadworks included in the application for adoption as maintainable highways, permission under the Town and Country Planning Act should not be construed as approval to the highway engineering details necessary for inclusion in an Agreement under Section 38 of the Highways Act 1980.

9. The permission hereby granted shall not be construed as authority to obstruct the public highway by the erection of scaffolding, hoarding or any other device or apparatus for which a licence must be sought from the Highway Authority.

10. When a temporary access is approved or an access is to be closed as a condition of planning permission an agreement with, or licence issued by, the Highway Authority will require that the redundant dropped kerb be raised and any verge or footway crossing be reinstated to conform with the existing adjoining surfaces at the developers expense. (Note: It is preferable where possible to arrange for the adjacent highway to be included in the area edged red on the application when Circular 11/95 provides that conditions may be suitable to control this)

11. The developer is reminded that it is an offence to allow materials to be carried from the site and deposited on or damage the highway from uncleaned wheels or badly loaded vehicles. The Highway Authority will seek, wherever possible, to recover any expenses incurred in clearing, cleaning or repairing highway surfaces and prosecutes persistent offenders. (Highways Act 1980 Sections 131, 148, 149).

12. When access is required to be `completed' before any other operations, the Highway Authority will normally agree that wearing course material and in some cases edge restraint may be deferred until construction of the development is virtually complete, provided all reasonable care is taken to protect public safety.
