Minutes:

  Councillor S Foulkes declared a prejudicial interest in this matter and left the meeting during its consideration (minute 11 refers).

 

The Director of Regeneration and Place submitted the above application for consideration.

 

An objector addressed the Committee.

 

The applicant and the architect addressed the Committee.

 

It was moved by the Chair and seconded by Councillor K Hodson that the application be refused.

 

The motion was put and carried (5:4).

 

Resolved (5:4) – That the application be refused for the following reason:

 

1. The proposed development would result in a scale and form of development that fails to relate sufficiently to the existing built form adjacent to and surrounding the site that does not provide a consistent and coherent setting for the space or street that it defines.  The long horizontal frontage and height of the development, particularly its position at the street edge of the site adjacent to Arrowe Park Road would result in creating overbearing development that gives rise to a detrimental impact on the character of the area.  It is considered that the proposal offers limited architectural quality resulting in a large utilitarian block that lacks any significant depth or articulation with particular regard to the lack of any active frontage along Arrowe Park Road that fails to respect the rhythm, scale and proportions of existing residential property fronting Arrowe Park Road.   The proposed development is therefore considered to be contrary to Policy HS4 of the Wirral Unitary Development Plan and the principles of the National Planning Policy Framework.
