PC Comments Amended application (2nd amendment) 12 Apr 2022 - The council objects to this amended application as concerns previously raised have not been adequately addressed. These concerns are reiterated below. In addition the council sent photographic evidence to planners proving that the parking provision does not work in practice. Council objects to this application. The property does not have the parking and turning space suitable for Class e use, with visiting patients with 2 practitioners. At turn around time it could reasonably be expected that 4 cars would be present and, as the owner of the recreation ground car park, the council is aware that there has been no agreement or permission provided for the use of this by the applicant. Currently cars park on the pavement outside the premises and this has a detrimental effect on pedestrian amenity. One of the parking spaces indicated on the design is regularly occupied by the occupants, and so unavailable for customer use. The turning space indicated is not currently used, and cars reverse onto the main carriageway. The dormer windows, for which permission has been denied on appeal, are out of keeping with the area. The site is too small for this type of use. Amended application 17 Feb 2022 - Object. The property does not have the parking and turning space suitable for Class e use, with visiting patients with 2 practitioners. At turn around time it could reasonably be expected that 4 cars would be present and, as the owner of the Rec carpark, there has been no agreement or permission provided for the use of this by the applicant. Currently cars park on the pavement outside the premises and this has a detrimental effect of pedestrian amenity. One of the parking spaces indicated on the design is regularly occupied by the occupants, and so unavailable for customer use. The turning space indicated is not currently used, and cars reverse onto the main carriageway. The dormer windows, for which permission has been denied on appeal, are out of keeping with the area. The site is too small for this type of use October 2021 - Objection based on following; Parking is inadequate for business use Unsafe access/egress out onto Wantage Road Vehicles already park on the pavement The council objected to a previous application for this building, P18/V1060/FUL, with similar concerns about traffic safety - access, proximity to Wantage Road/Reading Road junction, & inadequate parking - these concerns are still relevant, especially as there is no dropped kerb at the entrance. A previous planning application on this site, P18/V2081/FUL, was refused as "given the prominent location of the outbuilding, the addition of two proposed front dormer windows, would intensify its domestic appearance. As a result of the proposal, the outbuilding would no longer be subservient to the main dwelling, as required by the councils adopted Design Guide, and would therefore take on the appearance of a separate domestic dwelling in the street scene. As such, it is considered that the overall appearance of the proposal would not positively respond to the surrounding area. Therefore, the proposal is considered to be contrary to policy CP37 of the adopted Vale of White Horse Local Plan 2031, Part 1, the guidance in the Vale of White Horse Design Guide 2015 (SPD), and the provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework." Subsequently the windows were installed without permission and have been the subject of an Enforcement case which is apparently still ongoing. There is no mention of the windows in the new application.
