Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Reserved matters application following P/30/19/OUT (providing details of layout, scale, appearance and landscaping) in relation to the provision of an 80-bed care home.


This application was deferred by Committee on 8 February 2023 [Minute 666] for further discussion on an even re-distribution of the 80 beds on the plot resulting in a building comparable in height to the existing buildings in this part of Pagham. The Principal Planning Officer presented the report with updates which outlined revisions to the scheme following discussion with the applicants. The main changes included a reduction in height of the ridgeline and eaves, a hipped roof form instead of a double gable ended roof, the introduction of larger sections of continuous ridgeline, the removal of several dormer windows, the removal of chimneys, an increased footprint to the western wing, the building repositioned slightly to the north, minor landscaping changes, and the removal of an outside terraced seating area.


Members that spoke believed that the revised plans had gone a long way to addressing their concerns and that the new design was more in keeping with neighbouring properties and therefore more acceptable. The recommendation was then proposed by Councillor Chace and seconded by Councillor Bower.


The Committee




That the application be APPROVED CONDITIONALLY as detailed in the report subject and report update to the conditions as detailed.
