02.     The development hereby permitted shall be carried out only in accordance with the following approved plans received by the Local Planning Authority on 21 May 2009: (or any plans or details subsequently agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority as an amendment to the approved plans).    

 

 

Summary Of Reason(s) For Decision:

 

The following development plan policies have been taken into account in determining this planning application:

 

Bracknell Forest Borough Local Plan: Policies EN20, CSDPD CS7.

(Please note that this is not intended to be an exhaustive list).

 

The following material considerations have been taken into account:

 

The proposal is considered to comply with BFBLP Policies EN20, CSDPD CS7. The proposal will not adversely affect the character of the building, neighbouring property or area or significantly affect the amenities of neighbouring property. The proposal would not result in a level of overlooking that would be considered detrimental to the residential amenities and privacy of the adjoining properties at 21 and 22 Wasdale Close to warrant refusal of the application. Further, the proposal would be visible within the street scene but would not be considered to have a detrimental impact upon the character and appearance of the surrounding area, given the setback of 23 Wasdale Close from the main highway. The planning application is therefore approved.
