A preparing attraction has been denied for a house that would “detract from the streetscape” in Letham.
The software to develop an adjoining house to 20 Struan Highway – which drew criticism from neighbours – was refused in August 2020.
A previous software to sub-divide the plot and build a property right here was refused in 2019.
The appeal for this newest refusal was introduced in advance of Perth and Kinross Council’ s neighborhood assessment human body on Tuesday, February 2.
But the a few councillors – who sit on the regional evaluation entire body – unanimously agreed with PKC’s arranging department’s causes for refusal and with numerous of the troubles lifted in the 9 objections.
The PKC report of managing explained: “The two current attributes at both of those 18 and 20 Struan Road variety fairly a exclusive ‘bookend’, framing the area concerning the two terraced rows and making an identifiable architectural function.
“The open up room among the two attributes, by means of which a general public footpath runs, also makes a sense of open up area which is of course very a deliberate attribute as it will help to generate very a definitive crack in what would otherwise be a pretty homogenous terraced row.”
Cllr Willie Wilson stated it would “detract from the streetscape” if the new dwelling sat “cheek to jowl” with the general public footpath to Castle Check out.
Cllr Ian James agreed “wholeheartedly” and reported eliminating the parking area from number 20 and setting up a different home on the web page could perhaps place 4 autos on to “a road where parking is currently at a quality.”
Convener Lewis Simpson concurred. Cllr Simpson stated he could see “no powerful reason” to overturn the determination achieved by the planning division.
The refusal of the application was upheld.
In December, the PA claimed that neighbours feared an software would just hold currently being lodged until eventually the residence was supplied the go in advance.
One resident instructed mentioned they felt it was unfair the programs ended up getting so much consideration when other inhabitants had been denied permission to create relatively modest extensions.
The resident, who did not would like to be named, added: “The organizing officer stated yesterday that apps for this proposed dwelling can retain rolling on and on and it may never ever quit.
“We as residents are unwell with anxiety objecting to this proposed software.”
