The Panel considered the recommendation to grant conditional planning permission.  Concern was raised due to the prominence of the site, the design and external materials chosen to undertake the development, Councillors indicated that would result in a development which is out of keeping and would detract from the character and appearance of the Old Town South Conservation Area within which the site is located ad furthermore harm the setting of Scheduled Monument number 298 adjacent to the site.  Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was lost.

 

A further motion to refuse to grant conditional planning permission for the reasons set out below was then proposed by Councillor Denness and seconded by Councillor Claisse.

 

RESOLVED to refuse planning permission for the reasons set out below:

 

REFUSAL REASON - Impact on the historic character of the area

 

The materials and siting of the proposed shed and canopy would result in a development which is out of keeping, would detract from the character and appearance of the Old Town South Conservation Area and would harm the setting of Scheduled Monument number 298 adjacent to the site.  As a result the proposed development is contrary to the provisions of CS13 and CS14 of the adopted Southampton City Council Local Development Framework Development Plan Document (2015) and saved polices SDP1 and HE1 (i) of the adopted City of Southampton Local Plan (2015) and policy AP16 of the City Centre Action Plan (2015).
