Refused against the officer recommendation on the grounds that:-
(1) The proposed development of the site by two replacement dwellings fails to conserve and enhance local character by reason of the excessive scale and massing of these large dwellings. The corner position of the application site at its junction to Clyde Road further exacerbates this harmful impact where the span of Plot 2 and its flank wall appears excessive and is harmful to its street-scene.
The proposal is therefore contrary to Policy P15(i) of the Solihull Local Plan 2013.
A statement of objection was read out on behalf of Alex Creba, Councillor Ian Courts spoke against the application whilst Mr Neil Boddison spoke in support.
