Reasons for comment:
Comments: I write on behalf of Hoylake Community Planning Forum to confirm our consultation response to the Planning Application Ref No APP/17/00457
In considering the information submitted to date and having reviewed the proposals we make the following comments:
Hoylake Neighbourhood Plan Policy DI1. CHARACTER BUILDINGS
The proposed changes to the Lifeboat House building broadly respect HNP Policy DI1 in that they do not materially diminish the significant character of the building. However the inclusion of a UPVC roller shutter in place of the existing sliding / folding steel door is very much to the detriment of the character of the original building.
Hoylake Neighbourhood Plan Policy DI2. SCALE AND DESIGN OF NEW DEVELOPMENT
The proposed changes to the Lifeboat House building conflicts with HNP Policy DI2 in that the proposed inclusion of a UPVC roller shutter is an inappropriate material of construction for a such a character building and heritage asset.
Hoylake Neighbourhood Plan Policy DI3. DESIGNATED HERITAGE ASSETS
The proposed changes to the Lifeboat House building conflicts with HNP Policy DI3 in that the inclusion of a UPVC roller shutter in place of the existing sliding / folding steel door is very much to the detriment of the character of the original building.
Hoylake Neighbourhood Plan Policy H1. RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT
The proposed change of use of the upper part of the Old Lifeboat Station from D1 to Residential does not have a significantly adverse effect upon the distinctive character of the local area.
Neighbouring occupiers are entitled to a reasonable level of privacy, both within their homes and outside in their private gardens. With reference to any significantly adverse effects upon the living conditions of occupants of surrounding dwellings we trust that as the Planning Case Officer you will undertake a site visit to review the situation regarding any potentially unacceptable loss of privacy on the occupants of neighbouring dwellings
