Basement Review Draft policy and other measures for public consultation Consultation Arrangements General comments

BASEMENTS The Golborne Forum considered a previous consultation document on Basement Development Issues in June 2012 and agreed not to submit detailed comments as the document showed that no planning permissions were granted for development including a basement extension in 2010 or 2011 in Golborne. The Forum did, however, support the focus on defending gardens and trees in the consultation document. The Forum's position remains unchanged and there is nothing to add in response to the latest co

I am writing regarding the recent Basement Consultation Event I attended on 21st January. I would like my following comments noted for further Consultation. I am a Contracts Manager for a Basement Construction Firm. As a high proportion of our projects are in the borough I am very concerned that the changes that are being proposed would dramatically effect not only my livelihood but also that of my colleagues and the many numerous sub-contractors and suppliers. This is even more of a concern

We have carried out an initial review of the proposed changes to the Basement Planning Policy and have attended both of the informal meetings at Kensington Town Hall which took place earlier this month. We are extremely concerned at the changes proposed which when taken as a whole will most certainly amount to a very significant attempt to restrict the legal rights of individuals to carry out development of their property and also place unreasonable burdens upon professionals working within th

The consultation which we have been offered the opportunity to comment on is of a low risk/priority for Natural England and so we will not be offering representations at this time. The lack of further comment from Natural England should not be interpreted as a statement that there are no impacts on the natural environment. Other bodies and individuals may be able to make comments that will help the Local Planning Authority (LPA) to fully take account of the environmental value of areas affected

I think that the Council should be congratulated for these efforts to improve the current situation, and urge that the process be completed as soon as possible! The second point concerns conditional consents and how these are policed and enforced. Residents feel powerless and let down by the Council in this, and the Council doesn't seem committed to building and maintaining the enforcement capacity needed to police the conditions it issues on planning consents, leaving residents exposed to the

1. The Ladbroke Association generally welcomes the draft policy on basements issued by the Council in December 2012, although we believe that in some respects the Council could go further. 2. We remain of the view that the principles of sustainable development should be applied to basement developments and that, in doing so, the lengthy construction phase needs to be taken into account along with the long-term effects. As the Council recognises in its Sustainability Appraisal, recent basement d

The review of the planning policy framework concerning the development of basement extensions within the Borough has provided a much-needed opportunity for residents to express their views on this emotive subject. The public consultation events have provided a valuable forum for residents, builder, developers and other professionals engaged/interested in basement development to discuss various aspects of it. The representatives of Thurloe Residents Association (TRA) that attended these and other

I believe the pending proposals are unfair and unnecessarily focussed on basement developments. Some of the potential problems discussed with a basement development are not basement specific. Such problems are as prevalent if not more prevalent across the other aspects of above ground development. I would also ask the RBKC take into account all the livelihoods that may be affected by such proposals; both Direct Employees and Sub-Contractors. My colleagues within the basement industry are highly

· The language of the proposed amendments is still vague in certain areas, leaving it potentially subjective and open to interpretation. Planning guidelines in other areas are specific and based on precedents, the equivalent points RE basements should be clarified in greater detail so as to be less open to abuse and manipulation. A professional panel or consultation would benefit the forming of these policies ensuring they are in keeping with buildability and practicality, while not restr
