Agenda item

OUT/15/00250: Cleared Site, LEASOWE ROAD, WALLASEY VILLAGE, CH45 8NY - Erection of building to accommodate two retail units at ground floor and two self contained flats at first floor


The Strategic Director for Regeneration and Environment submitted the above application for consideration.


It was moved by Councillor Hayes and seconded by Councillor Berry that the application be refused on the following grounds:


‘ The proposed development, by virtue of its scale, build and massing, would represent over development of the site that would have an adverse impact on both the streetscene and the wider character of the area, due to its design, form and relationship with the neighbouring properties. The proposed development would represent an unneighbourly form of development which would appear overbearing and oppressive when viewed from the neighbouring properties particularly when viewed from the rear elevations and garden areas of residential properties located along Lycett Road, resulting in a harmful impact on residential amenity. The proposal is contrary to policies SH2 and SH7 of the Wirral UDP.’


The motion was put and lost (3:10)


It was then moved by Councillor Foulkes and seconded by Councillor Johnson and:
