Decision status: For Determination
Construct 3 and 4 storey building comprising 9 apartments (Use Class C4) and provision of parking area.
129-131 High Road Beeston NG9 2LL
The application was brought to the Committee at the request of Councillor S J Carr.
Members considered the late items for the application which included 25 letters of objection against the proposed development and two letters of support.
Mr Sandit Leihal (applicant), Mr Neville Bostock (objecting) and Councillor B C Carr (Ward Member) addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.
Members debated the application with particular reference to the parking problems that already exist on Peveril Road and Marlborough Road and the impact of the proposed development on homes on Cedar Avenue including loss of light and privacy. There was also concern that purpose built student accommodation was failing to take pressure off the general housing stock.
Debate progressed on to the size of the development which was considered to be overwhelming for the plot and too tall in comparison with neighbouring properties.
RESOLVED that planning permission be refused.
The application proposes the overdevelopment of the plot to the detriment of neighbour amenity.
