Update - 2 May 2017
The further application, ref. No. 17/01137/FULL1, for the demolition of the attached garage and part of the single storey rear extension at 81 Ravensbourne Avenue and the erection of one four-bedroom detached dwelling with landscaping, including formation of hardstanding for car parking in front of the proposed dwelling, has been permitted. Nearby owners/occupiers were notified of the application, but no representations were received.

On balance it is considered that the proposed dwelling would relate in a satisfactory manner to the existing residential qualities of the surrounding area, retaining adequate separation to adjacent development and complementing more positively the visual rhythm of the street scene and the pattern of development in the locality than the previous development, which was considered to represent a cramped development, detrimental to visual amenity.

The current proposal provides adequate parking spaces to serve the needs of future occupiers.
The proposal would not have a detrimental impact on residential amenity, being sensitively sited in relation to neighbouring dwellings, and the relationship between the dwelling and the application site provides an acceptable level of outside amenity space to serve the needs of prospective occupants.

The Delegation Report and Decision are available.

Proposed street elevation from Ravensbourne Avenue (north-east)

An appeal was filed on 10 February 2017 on the decision to refuse the application, ref. No. 16/04574/FULL1, for the partial demolition of 81 Ravensbourne Avenue, Bromley BR2 0AU with two-storey rear extension, and the erection of two three-bedroom semi-detached dwellings with external works and landscaping, including formation of hardstanding for car parking in front of existing and proposed dwellings.

However, a further application, ref. No. 17/01137/FULL1, has now been made for the demolition of the attached garage and part of the single storey rear extension at 81 Ravensbourne Avenue and the erection of one four-bedroom detached dwelling with landscaping, including formation of hardstanding for car parking in front of the proposed dwelling.

The following documents are available from the Bromley planning site:

Confusingly, the street scenes say “Ravensbourne Road”, but it’s clear that Ravensbourne Avenue is meant.

Update - 19 February 2017
An appeal has been filed on the decision to refuse the application, ref. No. 16/04574/FULL1, for the partial demolition of 81 Ravensbourne Avenue, Bromley BR2 0AU with two-storey rear extension, and the erection of 2 three-bedroom semi-detached dwellings with external works and landscaping, including formation of hardstanding for car parking in front of existing and proposed dwellings.

The Appeal Form dated 10 February 2017 is available. A full statement of case (Grounds of Appeal Statement.pdf) has been submitted but has not yet found its way on to the Bromley planning file.

Update - 14 February 2017
The application, ref. No. 16/04574/FULL1, for the partial demolition of 81 Ravensbourne Avenue, Bromley BR2 0AU with two-storey rear extension, and the erection of 2 three-bedroom semi-detached dwellings with external works and landscaping, including formation of hardstanding for car parking in front of existing and proposed dwellings, has been refused.

The Delegation Report and Decision dated 6 December 2016 are available.

The proposal would constitute a cramped overdevelopment of the severance plot of restricted dimensions by reason of its siting, the limited individual frontages of the dwellings, the amount of site coverage by buildings and hard surfaces and the lack of quality amenity space for a family dwelling, which would be out of character with the area and contrary to Policies H7 and BE1 of the Unitary Development Plan, Policy 7.4 of the London Plan and the Council's adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance 1 and 2.

The proposed development would be lacking adequate on-site car parking provision to serve the needs of the development and the provision of additional spaces would add to the too extensive ground coverage of car parking shown on the submitted plans, detrimental to the appearance of the development, contrary to Policy T3 of the Unitary Development Plan and Policy 6.13 of the London Plan.
