BH2023/02487 - 106 Dale View, Hove - Full Planning


1.    The Planning Manager introduced the application to the committee.




2.    Ward Councillor Hewitt addressed the committee and stated that they considered the development would have a detrimental impact on the surrounding dwellings, the height of the proposals exceeds other structures and will overlook neighbours. These issues have not been addressed in the case officers report. More detailed plans would be appreciated. There will be no access from Dale View and Kingston Close is for private access only. The committee were requested to include conditions relating to working hours, parking and storage of materials if they considered granting approval.


3.    Simon Bareham addressed the committee as the agent acting on behalf of the applicant and stated that this application was a revised version of the previous application, and the height and depth of the structure had been reduced. The proposals will be no nearer to the front boundary than the previous application. The construction traffic and material storage will be covered by condition. The applicant owns the property and materials can be stored at the address. Easements will be agreed once planning permission has been granted.


Answers to Committee Member Questions


4.    Councillor Nann was informed that the proposed construction working hours would be 8am to 6pm. It was also noted by Ward Councillor that neighbours had concerns about the delivery of materials. The agent stated that this would be covered by condition for an Construction and Environmental Management Plan.


5.    Councillor Theobald was informed by the agent the Marley style garage on the site was considered unsafe and had been demolished leaving only the hardstanding. The case officer confirmed the proposals were 1.5m lower than the previous application, the rear windows will offer no views and the first-floor windows will be obscure glazed.


6.    Councillor Sheard was informed by the case officer that the existing fencing will be moved back to form a new boundary between the existing dwelling at 106 and the proposed dwelling.


7.    Councillor Robinson was informed that the fact that Kingston Close is private was not a material planning consideration but was for the applicant to resolve.




8.    A vote was taken, and the committee agreed unanimously to grant Planning permission.


9.    RESOLVED: That the Committee has taken into consideration and agrees with the reasons for the recommendation set out in the reports and resolves to GRANT planning permission subject to the Conditions and Informatives in the report.
