6 The Grove Epsom KT17 4DQ
20/01855/FUL Erection of 7 x two bedrooms flats and 2 x three bedrooms flats and associated external works following demolition of the existing building.
This proposal is a modified version of Planning Application 20/00313/FUL which would have been refused by the council had it not been appealed. The Appeal directed that the application should be refused.
A previous application 18/00647/FUL (Conversion of house into 5 Flats) has already been permitted by the council for this site, which is located within the delightful Church Street Conservation Area and close by to the Grade 2 listed Grove House.
This latest proposal is not only inappropriate to its setting in the Church Street Conservation Area, but by converting 90% of the garden to car parking and road access would contravene local policy regarding Backland Development, destroy a green asset contributing to the value of the Conservation Area, and severely impact the adjoning property No 7 The Grove.
For these and many other reasons, the Society has requested refusal of the application.
