Developer NRS Developments wanted to erect two four-bedroom homes with off-road parking on land at Cippenham village.

The proposal is to include the alterations to the existing dwelling to provide access and for the retention of the existing dwelling in the form of a two-bedroom detached dwelling complete with a detached garage and private garden.

But planning officers refused the scheme, believing the design is ‘poor’ and not ‘sympathetic’ to the character of the area and does not provide adequate internal and external space.

They also denied it as the plans did not include provision for electric vehicle charging points.

Cowley Lodge, which comprises the larger southern part of the building, is occupied as a nine-room HMO, with Cowley Cottage, in the north-western corner of the building, accommodating a self-contained two-bedroom unit.

The developer will alternate Cowley Lodge from a nine-room HMO into four one-bedroom apartments.

They will also convert the subdivision of Cowley Cottage from a two-bedroom unit into two one-bedroom apartments.

Applicant CK Hutchinson Networks (UK) is back with a new proposal to erect a new 5G mast on the land after a previous scheme was thrown out by planning officers.

It was refused due to the pole being 18m in height. Officers say it was ‘visually incongruous’ and a ‘prominent feature,’ which is out of keeping with the area. They also said it would be ‘detrimental’ to the safety of users of the adjoining cycleway and footway.

But CK Hutchinson has now reduced its height from 18m to 15m.

In a statement, the company said it needs this site for its ‘specific technical and operational requirements’ as it rolls out 5G network across the country.

Planning officers are yet to decide on the application.
