22/00326/FULL - DEMOLITION OF EXISTING DWELLING AND ERECTION OF 6NO. DWELLINGS (WITH ACCESS FROM PRIVETT PLACE) (as amplified by information received 25.10.22 and amended by plans received 01.02.23)

110 Privett Road  Gosport  Hampshire  PO12 3SY   


Councillor Marshall was invited to address the Board as Ward Councillor. He advised that he was representing local residents and that he was aware that a previous application for the site had been refused.


He still felt that the proposal seemed to squeeze a large amount of properties on to the site and that this impacted the visual amenity of the area.


He expressed concern that there was no sustainability proposals within the development, provision for renewable energy such as solar energy was not included.


The residents had significant concern about access to the proposed site from Privett Place, access to the existing building was on to Privett Road and that it made no sense to move it to Privett Place. It was felt the electricity sub station and the chicane in the road made it more dangerous and created poor visibility and that the increased numbers of proposed properties would increase the traffic to and from the site.


Concern was expressed that 3 bedroomed properties would create a greater demand for car parking spaces than the two per property allocated. Overflow parking would then spill out on to Privett Place making the visibility worse.


He advised he felt it was an overdevelopment of the site, and that the proposed access was not safe, there was not sufficient parking and that the access should be on to Privett Road and the proposal reconsidered.



The Planning Officer advised that the site had been subject to a previous application and that this had been refused because of loss of privacy, access proposals were not the reason for refusal and were acceptable in line with the parking SPD.


The Board was advised that there was no requirement for inclusion of renewable energy as it was not within the local plan but would be considered in future revisions. The proposed parking levels were acceptable for the development as previously advised and the electric substation was not deemed to be problematic.


Members noted that the Highway Authority had no objection to the proposals, some Members were concerned that the officers consulted on the proposal did not visit the site.


It was requested that consideration be given to making Privett Place one way, however the Board was advised that this would be a highway matter and was not related to the planning application.


Members were advised that the amenity of the neighboring residents as a result of the proposal was far improved from the original application, and this had made it acceptable. This was as a result of an increased separation distance between the proposals and the properties.


Members acknowledged that whilst the access from Privett Place was not seen to be ideal, it was far better than if it were Privett  ...  view the full minutes text for item 38.
