Chris Stacey gave a presentation on the development and answered questions from the members. He provided points of clarification on the omission of a window in a neighbouring property, and the distances between the development and the neighbouring property.


Jason Sam spoke in objection to the application; Miheer Mehta spoke in support of the application, and Councillor Denton as the substitute for the ward Member Councillor Maria Gatland, addressed the Committee with her view on the application. After the speakers had finished, the committee began the deliberation, during which they raised the following points:


·       The development was now detached from the neighbouring property and allowed access to a rear garden.

·       One parking space was provided which addressed the previous reason for refusal.

·       The design was improved and more in keeping with the character of the area.

·       The main concern was the impact on 172 A Selsdon Road, however, considering whether the harm was significant enough to refuse the application, this was not strong enough.

·       The two reasons for refusal previously had been addressed by removing a car parking space and changing the shape of the development.

The substantive motion to GRANT the application based on the officer’s recommendation was proposed by Councillor Parker. This was seconded by Councillor Kabir.


The motion to grant the application was taken to a vote and carried with 6 Members voting in favour. The Committee RESOLVED to GRANT the application for Kickers House, 172A Selsdon Road, South Croydon, CR2 6PJ.
