We welcome the restriction of one level but consider that considerably greater definition is essential in the interests of both applicants and the administration of the policies. 2 Single level basements The Society strongly supports the proposal that only a single level of basement should be permitted for residential developments and for any other uses in predominantly residential areas. Precisely what constitutes a basement should be defined. We propose that it should be an additional level

34.3.56 How is ground level determined? In many instances what would be a basement at the front of the property is ground level at the back. The level in the public realm close to the property should be the 'ground' level. If there is more than one level the highest should be taken as the ground level for the interpretation of this chapter. What do 'the most minor extensions' include? 34.3.56 Properties in the vicinity should not be limited to those in the immediate vicinity, but all those whic

34.3.76 The information should be based on site-specific surveys. Despite this being in the SPD applications to date in some cases have relied on reference to conditions in near by sites. The Society considers that this should be incorporated in Policy.

34.3.59 revise wording: "Basements can, however, provide benefits to residents, by adding space. Bedrooms in basement must have adequate natural light and ventilation. 34.3.59 See item 4 above - 75% is too much under all circumstances revise wording"In order to ensure that Thames Water's goal to reduce surface water run-off is achieved and in order to reduce overall site water run-off. the status quo in relation to surface water drainage is maintained without increasing surface water flows ont

34.3.78 The Society recognises that applicants cannot be obliged to consult with neighbours however can it be stated that in considering objections from neighbours consideration will be given to whether or not they have been consulted by the applicant.

The construction impact of the proposals which can have a devastating impact on the local community with no benefit to that community. I add ' and shall take account of any other similar activities in the surrounding area and be so organised to ensure that the cumulative effect is not detrimental to the activities in the area nor to the access of residents and emergency vehicles including keeping pavements clear of all storage of hoarded areas and vehicles'.

34.3.61 The Society does not consider that the acceptability of deeper basements can be related to the plot size. The impact in terms of disruption and disturbance is dependent on the amount of excavation not the size of the plot in which it is situated. Issues related to water flow etc are related to the ground conditions and not the size of the site. We only consider deeper basements might be considered for uses other than residential and then only in locations which are not predominately resi
