SCAN Comments on Active Planning Applications
14th August 2017 3 Station Approach, Ashford, TW15 2QN 17/01213/FUL
Erection of a third storey to the current two storey building to create 4 flats comprising 2 no. studio, 1 no. 1 bed and 1 no. 2 bed units.
OBJECTION- As with the approved flats which share the same basic layout, there is no evidence that any of the flats proposed at second floor level make any provision for disabled people either to gain access or use the flats. A lift has not been provided. In order to be ensure scope for Building Regulations to require access and facilities for disabled people the proposal needs to demonstrate suitable provision at the planning stage. The development does not conform with the Equalities Act (refused – no officer’s report )
