A PLANNING application for a pair of two storey semi detached dwellings is set to go before Harlow Council planning committee.
The proposal relates to the demolition of the existing bungalow in Roden Close, Old Harlow and the erection of a pair of two-storey semi-detached dwellings. The scale of the building has been reduced in response to the objections from local residents.
The objection are as follows:
The proposal to replace a detached bungalow by a pair of two-storey semi-detached would be out of keeping with the character of Roden Close.
The design of the proposal does not fit in with the rest of Roden Close, and does not include energy efficiency design.
The proposal would result on an overdevelopment of the plot.
The two-storey building would result in overshadowing and overbearing impact to theneighbour residents.
The new dwellings would overlook into the neighbouring properties and cause privacyconcerns.
The total 4x parking spaces are insufficient for 2x four-bed houses. This would result inon-street parking problem.
The proposed access is directly facing a junction and would cause highway safetyconcerns.
The matter will be debated at the next Harlow Council planning meeting on Wednesday July 7th, 2021 at 7.30pm.
