21/00064/FLH Formation of new vehicular access involving drop kerb incorporating new hard standing for driveway and soft landscaping, including the felling of Hawthorn T44 within TPO 165 located in the front garden.
This application for a new vehicle access, involving a drop kerb, new hardstanding, soft landscaping and tree felling is in a property located within the Downs Road Conservation Area, which is noted for its exceptional sylvan character and landscaping.
The proposal would have an adverse impact on the setting and involve the creation of a tarmac break in the grass verge, a two-car hard standing in the front garden and the loss of a tree subject to a Tree Preservation Order.
The Society believes the proposal is inconsistent with current planning policy to protect the lanscaping and appearance of Conservation Areas, and for that reason we have requested refusal.
