BH2021/01326 - 39 Dyke Road Avenue, Hove - Full Planning


1.       The Planning Manager introduced the application to the Committee by reference to photographs, plans and elevational drawings. A presentation was given setting out the rationale for the officer report recommendation. The differences between this scheme and that which had been refused previously were highlighted and it was considered that previous reasons for refusal had been overcome, that the scheme was now considered to be acceptable and was therefore recommended for approval.




2.       Councillor Theobald requested further clarification of the changes effected to the current scheme, it was explained that the design of the scheme had been improved, the building line would be set back further from the northern boundary of the site and a glass link would be provided between the proposed building and the existing.




3.       Councillor Theobald noted that the Heritage Team still appeared to have some concerns regarding the proposed scheme and stated that she could not support the proposed scheme as she considered that it was still overly large and dominant, would result in overlooking of neighbouring properties in Chalfont Drive and would have a negative impact on the neighbouring street scene. Councillor Theobald considered that insufficient amendments had been made to the scheme to outweigh any potential harm and therefore she could not support it.


4.       Councillor Janio stated that he shared Councillor Theobald’s concerns and that he was also unable to support the scheme.




5.       A vote was taken and on a vote of 6 to 3 planning permission was granted.


27.8    RESOLVED – That the Committee has taken into consideration and agrees with the reasons for the recommendation set out in the report and resolves to GRANT planning permission subject to the conditions and informatives also set out in the report.
