DECISION UNDER DELEGATED AUTHORITY

 

RESOLVED on the motion of Councillors Smith and D'Amico that the Section 96 Modification to vary the consent given to Development Application No.D268/06 be refused on the following grounds:

 

1.         The proposed floor space ratio of 0.55:1 exceeds Council’s maximum requirement of 0.5:1 under its Code for Dwellings and the 0.524:1 approved by the Planning and Building Committee at its meeting of the 7th May 2007.

 

2.         The proposal is considered likely to adversely affect the amenity of the area.

 

3.         The bulk and scale of the proposed dwelling house is considered excessive.

 

4.         The proposal creates an undesirable precedent for further applications with a floor space in excess of the Code for Dwelling House’s requirement.

 

 

The motion was carried unanimously.
