Plans to build four flats on a Bramley street have been knocked back by council planners – following 14 objections to the proposals.
Applicants David Dixon and Alison Read wanted to add the flats next to their house at the end of a Victorian terrace where they live. The empty site was formally number one Warrel’s Terrace, which was demolished in the mid-1990s.
They proposed a 2.5-storey building to follow the style and design of the adjacent properties, picking up many of the details such as the bay windows and stone detailing.
But the proposals received 14 objections, which included concerns over parking and being out of character in a conservation area.
Council planning officers refused the application, citing concerns over the ‘substandard size’ of the flats and restricted light to the basement flat. Their report added:
“The proposed design including the use of re-constituted (artificial) stone as the main facing material and large / wide rear dormer will form uncharacteristic and visually harmful additions within the streetscene to the detriment of the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.”
