Minutes:

See report by Melek Ergen, Planning Officer (agenda item 9) and the Addendum Report

 

Robert Coomber presented the report and drew Members’ attention to amendments in the addendum report.

 

Councillor O’Reilly did not feel that the design would enhance the area and Councillor Lambert had concerns about the provision of affordable housing and lack of amenity space. Councillor O’Reilly moved refusal on the grounds that the design would harm the appearance of the conservation area and there would be insufficient amenity space, which was seconded by Councillor Lambert. Members voted in favour of refusal, as follows:

 

For -               Councillors Collins, Khan, Lambert, N. Malik, O’Reilly and Lee

Against -       Councillors Anderson, K. Malik and Whatley

Abstain -       Councillors Grewal and Louki

 

Resolved:

 

That planning permission for planning application 00523/C/P14 for the change of use of existing nursing home (C2) to residential (C3) to provide 17 flats with a roof extension and first and second storey rear extensions and associated parking and landscaping at Dudley House Nursing Home, The Grove, Isleworth be refused because the proposal, due to its scale and unsympathetic design would harm the appearance of the building and the Spring Grove Conservation Area. It is therefore not considered to comply with London Plan Policies 7.2 (An Inclusive Environment), 7.4 (Local Character), 7.6 (Architecture) and 7.8 (Heritage Assets and Archaeology) and adopted Local Plan Policies CC1 (Context and Character), CC2 (Urban Design and Architecture),  CC4 (Heritage) and SC7 (Residential Extensions and Alterations) and the proposal makes insufficient provision for amenity space to be provided at the site and so would result in unacceptable living conditions for future occupiers as well as being out of character with the prevailing pattern of the development in the surrounding area. It is therefore contrary to London Plan Policy 3.5 (Quality and Design of Housing Developments) and Local Plan Policy CC1 (Context and Character) and SC5 (Ensuring Suitable Internal and External Space).
