Dear Sir/Madam
Pre-application enquiry reference PA13/03532/PREAPP
Proposal   Pre application advice for change of use, extension and conversion of garage to create a dwelling 

Location    Land And Garage East Of 14 Steamers Hill Angarrack Cornwall 
Applicant   Mr And Mrs D And E Amos

I refer to your enquiry received on 2 December 2013 concerning the above and would inform you that this letter is written on the basis of the information supplied with your enquiry and the submitted drawings. 
Site and context: This pre-application enquiry follows a previously withdrawn application for a dwelling on the plot which was withdrawn following concerns raised during the application process. 
The site comprises an existing plot of land that has been granted permission to be used as annexe accommodation and comprises garage, parking and amenity area. 
Constraints: 
Critical Drainage Area Site Planning History:

This list is not exhaustive but provides a focus for the key issues against which the scheme should be considered. The National Planning Policy Framework 2012

Cornwall Design Guide Considerations: Principle
The site is situated within the village of Angarrack which is identified within policy H6 of the Penwith Local Plan and the site is surrounded by existing housing such that in principle the addition of a dwelling is acceptable in principle within the village. The site is bordered by existing housing such that it is considered to form a sustainable form of development. Highway Safety
One of the main reasons of concern with the development was the access arrangement. This has now been amended in order to utilise the existing access for parking which comprises an existing access already in use. This will provide a safer means of access and is deemed acceptable. As part of the proposal you will need to include the new parking area for 14 Steamers Hill as this will be lost by the proposed development. The siting of the new parking area will be well related to the existing dwelling, in order to ensure the access is suitable you will need to ensure that the areas around the access is cleared in order to create a suitable visibility splay. I have discussed this with the Councils Highways Officer and he is happy with this provided the splays provide visibility to the north-east. Design and Visual Impact
The main concern with the previous application was the size and positioning of the dwelling on the plot in that it comprises a dwelling that took up much of the plot and appeared cramped in this location. I note that the dwelling has been reduced in size Page 3 11 March 2014 and the fenestration altered to reduce glazing in the north elevation to rooflights only. These alterations give a smaller dwelling and reduce some of the bulk of the building, however the concern in respect of the dwelling appearing cramped and out of character with the pattern of development in the area still remain. While I appreciate that there is a mixture of age and style properties in the area it is considered that in this instance the proposed dwelling would take up much of the plot leaving a small amenity area to the front and side of the dwelling, thus leading to a poor form of development. Residential Amenity
The neighbour to the north raised concern with overlooking; the removal of the dormer will help alleviate this concern but this window would also need to be obscure glazed to prevent any potential future overlooking should the trees be removed to the north. The site is a sufficient distance away from other neighbours such that it will not present any issues of overlooking or overbearing. Conclusion:
In summary the proposed erection of a dwelling will still appear cramped on this site and it is considered that the proposal will be out of character with the pattern of development in the area. Community Engagement It would be advisable to contact the immediate neighbours if you are wishing to progress with an application in order to discuss the proposal. In addition you are advised to contact the parish council to discuss your proposal with them, they may be able to offer advice as to whether your scheme would be supportable by them or raise any likely objections to the development.
