Effective from: 20/03/2024

Decision:

Noted that whilst the Council, its partners and developers have invested in supporting the physical and socio-economic conditions of the borough, there are still areas identified in the report that need further intervention, and the Council to act as a catalyst for on-going regeneration. The report details the rationale for the seven areas of focus for the 10-year Regeneration Plan in the context of the Council’s approach to Place Leadership for the borough.

 

Noted that £725,000 of funding has been identified from approved budget sources for the procurement and commissioning of area-based regeneration studies and community engagement programme for four priority regeneration areas, and Homes England has indicated it will provide £100,000 by way of grant funding for Charlton Riverside.

Subject to agreement by Cabinet in the future years on the proposed recommendations and interventions promoted by each area URF, a business case will need to be developed to release capital for investment in these areas, especially where the Council has an interest (land, property or future assets).

 

Approved the use of the funding of up to £825,000 identified in paragraph 1.1.2 of the report for the Council to prepare the 10-year regeneration plan and support the activities referred to in paragraph 1.2.1 to 1.2.3 of the report.

Decision Maker: Greenwich Area Planning Committee

Planning permission is refused for the demolition of the existing building and construction of a 5-storey building comprising of a commercial use at ground floor (Use Class E) and a range of flexible residential uses on first, second, third and fourth floors, either Use Class C3 (Residential), Use Class C4 (small HMO), Use Class Sui generis (7 Person HMO) or Use Class Sui Generis (8 Person HMO) and associated external works and alterations (Re-consultation - revised description, Revised Drawings and Documents), for the reasons set out in Appendix 2 of the report (as below) and to be detailed in the notice of determination.

 

Reasons for Refusal - Application Reference 22/0993/F:

 

1.       The proposed development, due to the cumulative impact its height, scale,  mass and poor design, would appear as an incongruous and overbearing development as seen from the surrounding streetscape to the detriment of the character and appearance of the surrounding area. As a result, the proposed development would be contrary to the NPPF, Policy D3 of the London Plan (2021), Policies DH1 and H5 of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan: Core Strategy with Detailed Policies (2014) and the Royal Greenwich Urban Design Guide SPD (2023)

 

2.       The proposed development due to the excessive size of Units 8 and 9 would result in a development which does not make efficient use of the land and therefore optimise the housing potential of the site, including the provision of affordable housing.  As such the proposed development would be contrary to the NPPF, Policies GG4, H1, H2, H4 and H10 of the London Plan (2021) and Policy H2 and H3 of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan: Core Strategy with Detailed Policies (2014).

 

Informative(s) for Application Reference 22/0993/F:

 

1.   Positive and Proactive Statement: The Council engages with all applicants in a positive and proactive way through specific pre-application enquiries and the detailed advice available on the Council’s website. On this particular application, preapplication advice was sought and advice was given regarding the proposal being unacceptable. Discussion took place in trying to find a solution, but no solution was possible.

Decision Maker: Greenwich Area Planning Committee

Decision published: 13/05/2024

Effective from: 09/05/2024

Decision:

Resolved –

 

Application A – (22/2931/F)

 

Planning permission is refused for Change of Use of ground floor commercial unit (Class E) and part of the surface and basement car parks (Sui Generis) to a vehicle rental office (Sui Generis) including a vehicle rental office, rental vehicle wash bay, car parking (including rental vehicle storage), and minor associated works.

 

Reason for refusal

The proposed development, by reason of the intensification of the use of the surface level car parking spaces above the existing lawful situation on site, and the operational requirements associated with the proposed change of use of these spaces, would result in unacceptable transport and highways safety impacts, and would result in an unacceptable impact on the amenity enjoyed by the occupiers of Dundas Court nearby. As such, the proposed development would be contrary to Policy T4 and D11 of the London Plan (2021) and Policies DH1 and IM4 of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan: Core Strategy with Detailed Policies (2014)

 

Full details of the reasons for refusal will be set out in the decision notice.

 

Resolved –

 

Application B – (22/2932/A)

 

Advertisement consent is refused for the Installation two (2) illuminated fascia bands, two (2) non-illuminated wall mounted signs and two (2) pole mounted stall signs (Revised Description).

 

Reason for refusal

The proposed advertisements would not reasonably relate to any approved operation within the wider site. As such, these would exist as excess and unnecessary clutter which would cause harm to the visual amenity of the surrounding area. The development would therefore be contrary to Policy D3 of the London Plan (2021) and Policies DH1, DH(e) and DH(f) of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan: Core Strategy with Detailed Policies

 

Full details of the reasons for refusal will be set out in the decision notice.
