Cllr Guy Valentine-Neale, spoke on behalf of Sandgate Parish Council.

David Bradley, applicant, spoke on the application.

 

Members made observations paying particular attention to the heritage assets and how they will be maintained as part of the site and not overshadowed, ensuring they receive listed buildings consent. They talked about the design, boundary layout, the use of carbon neutral buildings and green space.

 

Proposed by Councillor Gary Fuller

Seconded by Councillor Nicola Keen and

 

Resolved:That the application be refused for the following reason:

 

The nearest buildings to the heritage assets would be overbearing and harmful to the setting of the grade II listed buildings. Furthermore, the layout of the development, in combination with a lack of a comprehensive masterplan, would isolate these heritage assets from the wider development, detrimental to their respective settings.
