14/09/2016 - 16/1258/FUL - 6 Greville Road

The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for part two storey part single storey side and rear extension, roof extension incorporating rear dormer.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from a resident of Greville Road.


The representation covered the following issues:

       i.          Took issue with the Officer’s recommendation.

     ii.          Raised specific concerns regarding:

·       The application was a stepping stone to the house becoming a home in multiple occupation. So there were issues that should be considered at today’s committee that had been discounted as this was a residential application.

·       Loss of a family home to a potential home in multiple occupation.

·       Noise nuisance and bin storage issues.

·       Floor space for occupants.

·       Signposted local residents’ objections in the Officer’s report.


Mr Proctor (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


Councillor Baigent (Romsey Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee about the application.


The representation covered the following issues:

       i.          The application was a home in multiple occupation. The design leant itself to occupancy by 7 people, which required different permission to that being sought. (Bedroom 6 could be shared by 2 people).

     ii.          Expressed concern that the application would set a precedent where family homes would be lost in favour of homes in multiple occupation.

   iii.          Existing parking and access issues would be exacerbated.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers.
