PC Comments 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.
