Land rear of 48 Farnaby Road, Madeira Avenue, Bromley - 4 January 2019
Madeira Avenue elevation

A planning application, ref. No. 05/00116/FULL1, for a two/three storey detached three bedroom house with integral garage on land rear of 48 Farnaby Road, Madeira Avenue, Bromley was refused planning permission on 24 February 2005 for the following reasons:
  1. The proposed development would give rise to an unacceptable degree of overlooking and loss of privacy and amenity to the occupiers of Nos. 46-50 Farnaby Road contrary to Policy H.2 (ii) of the adopted Unitary Development Plan and Policy H6 of the second deposit draft Unitary Development Plan (September 2002).

  2. The proposal constitutes a cramped and unacceptable form of piecemeal development, detrimental to the amenities which the occupants of adjoining properties could reasonably expect to be able to continue to enjoy, by reason of overlooking and visual impact, contrary to Policy H.2 of the adopted Unitary Development Plan and Policy H6 of the second deposit draft Unitary Development Plan (September 2002).

  3. The proposal would have an unsatisfactory relationship with the host dwellings, out of character with the area and likely to lead to an undesirable retrograde lowering of the spatial standards of the area contrary to Policy H.2 of the adopted Unitary Development Plan and Policy H6 of the second deposit draft Unitary Development Plan (September 2002).
A new planning application, ref. No. 18/05287/FULL1, was made on 26 November 2018 for the erection of a detached two bedroom dwelling facing Madeira Avenue on land formerly the rear garden of 48 Farnaby Road. The following documents are available:
