Planning Application 20190958
DEMOLITION OF EXISTING BUILDING AND REDEVELOPMENT OF SITE TO CONSTRUCT A FOUR AND FIVE STOREY BUILDING TO PROVIDE STUDENT ACCOMMODATION (90 BEDROOMS) (SUI GENERIS)
The discussion started with comments on the blank gable to the east elevation. Its reduction in scale compared to the original design was appreciated, regarded as a positive change. However, it was also noted that the visualizations and the verified views do not match in in terms of detail. The panel unanimously agreed that the former need to be amended to constitute an accurate representation of the new structure, in accordance with the elevation drawings.
More generally, the members agreed that the external material palette, height, massing and the symmetrical primary elevation are all acceptable for the location. The development was considered as an improvement to the site as is, and a fitting addition to the streetscene of Friar Lane. Some concerns were voiced in relation to the planting scheme to ground floor, which was not considered to be sufficiently detailed.
The following applications are reported for Members' information but no additional comments were made.
