Newsletter No.51 – 9th January 2021

 
Dear Resident, 

Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year from the TRG Committee to all residents!

Developers have been busy recently, lodging 2 new applications (see items 2 & 3 below) for the former Café Rouge site, which come on top of the 3 appeals being pursued for that site and 3 applications for what used to be Café Rouge’s rear car park (see 1 below).
 
  1. Land North West Of Campbell Cottage And 1 Beacon Mews South Road Weybridge Surrey KT13 9DX  (Applications 2020/3188 2020/3190 and 2020/3213)
Applications for what used to be Café Rouge’s rear car park:
  1. Outline application for a detached two-storey building to provide offices for use by the visually impaired (8 objections to date)
  2. Outline application for a detached two-storey building to display works of art (not for sale) (9 objections to date)
  3. Outline application for a detached two-storey building to provide 4 flats (8 objections to date)
 
No off-street parking is proposed in any of these applications. If any of were to be approved, the parking burden would fall on already saturated local roads, principally Princes Road, York Road and Oatlands Avenue.
 
TRG has objected to all three applications. More objections are required in order to demonstrate residents’ concerns to the Planning Committee
 
Residents can object by email to tplan@elmbridge.gov.uk, remembering to include the application details and number and your own name and address, or via the EBC portal at 2020/3188 2020/3190 and 2020/3213
 
Residents can formulate one response but would need to submit it against each separate application to ensure that it is considered in respect of all of them.
 
The closing date for submissions for all 3 applications is now 29th January, 2021.
 
  1. 85 Queens Road, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 9UQ – Application 2020/3289
This application seeks approval for a roof extension creating a fourth floor on top of the former Café Rouge building, incorporating a roof ridge height of 2.4m to create a 2-bedroom 3-person apartment with a front balcony.
TRG has objected to the proposed development because its mass, height, design, and siting in relation to the other properties in the Queens Road local centre would result in a detrimental impact upon the street scene and character of the area; and because it fails to address adequately the parking requirements in an area already subject to acute and increasing on-street parking stress to the detriment of residents. It should therefore be rejected as contrary to CS4, 17 and 25 of the Core Strategy and policies DM 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 of the Management Development Plan 2015.
Residents can object by email to tplan@elmbridge.gov.uk, remembering to include the application details and number and your own name and address, or via the EBC portal at 2020/3289
 
The closing date for submissions is 22nd January, 2021.
 
  1. 85 Queens Road Weybridge Surrey KT13 9UQ - Application 2020/3366
 
This application is for the sub-division of the existing flat to create two flats, bin and cycle stores, entrance gate and fencing to a height of 1.8m, pedestrian access and alterations to fenestration following removal of existing external staircase.
Residents can object by email to tplan@elmbridge.gov.uk, remembering to include the application details and number and your own name and address, or via the EBC portal at 2020/3366
 
The closing date for submissions is 5th February, 2021.
