Application Address and details of proposals TWBC    decision Town Council Comments
21/03965/FULL Proposed vehicular access onto Pearson’s Green Road; modification of existing pedestrian way (part retrospective) | 2 Pearsons Green Cottages Pearsons Green Road Brenchley Tonbridge Kent, TN12 7DE permitted Object on the grounds that the driveway as installed is resulting in surface water flooding of the adjacent property
21/04024/LBC Listed Building Consent: Replace seven double-glazed windows with seven new 24mm double-glazed windows and new frames; replace existing ‘stable type’ door and frame to the rear of the property | Hawthorns Pearsons Green Road Brenchley Tonbridge TN12 7DH Application withdrawn  
21/04081/TPO TREES: LONDON PLANE (T1) – fell and re-plant with standard Prunus pandora; LONDON PLANE (T2) – fell and re-plant with standard Prunus pandora | 17 Eldon Way Paddock Wood Tonbridge TN12 6BE Refused Object to the removal of the mature trees and their replacement with ornamental varieties and suggest that the trees should be pollarded as has evidently been done before and repairs should be made to the surrounding hard landscaping that facilitates rainwater getting down to the tree roots
21/04021/FULL Ground floor rear infill extension, first floor rear extension, loft conversion with two front dormers and one rear dormer; Internal remodel to suit the proposed changes. | Stace House Maidstone Road Paddock Wood Tonbridge Kent TN12 6EA Permitted object on the grounds that: The proposal will result in a 3 storey building, overly dominant on the surround dwellings which will also be overlooked. The area is already subject to significant problems with surface water flooding which has been exacerbated by recent infill developments, hard landscaping and property extensions in the immediate area
21/03297/FULL Conversion of three existing outbuildings to dwellings with associated amenity space, parking and biodiversity enhancements | Fairfield Old Hay Brenchley Tonbridge Kent TN12 7DG permitted object on the following grounds The location is unsustainable as future residents will be dependent upon the use of the private car due to the rural location. The area is subject to surface water flooding. The ecology report appears inaccurate as it mentions the presence of numbers of bats but has not identified roosting areas so cannot demonstrate that these are not in the buildings earmarked for redevelopment.
21/03096/SUB Submission of Details in relation to Condition 15 (Surface Water Management Plan) of 14/504140/HYBRID. | Church Farm And Land Church Road Paddock Wood Tonbridge Kent permitted Three substantial objections including specific critique of SUDS scheme.
21/02666/OUT Outline (All Matters Reserved) – Demolition of detached garage; erection of 1no. dwelling; new access track and parking; landscaping | 66 Church Road Paddock Wood Tonbridge Kent TN12 6HF permitted object on the grounds that It is an overintensive development of the site The access on the bend is hazardous There is no access to the bungalow or refuse vehicles or emergency services
21/02815/OUT Outline (Access not reserved) – Erection of 5 no dwelling houses comprising 2 no three-bedroom units and 3 no two-bedroom units, including access | Land Adjacent To Elm Tree Mile Oak Road Paddock Wood Tonbridge Kent refused object on the following grounds The development is outside the limits to built development and adversely affects the rural landscape and causes harm to the character of the surrounding countryside. The location is unsustainable with no footway or street lighting along the route to Paddock Wood on a fast road with national speed limit applying. Residents would therefore be dependent on the private car to access local services. The form of development proposed is suburban in character and conflicts with the rural character of other properties in this area. The egress opposite the junction of Pearsons green road and adjacent to Church Road is dangerous due to poor visibility and speed of vehicles using Queen Street. The area is subject to frequent surface water flooding including in residential properties in nearby Catts Place. A FRA should therefore be requested and SUDS should be required as a condition of any permission if granted
21/03681/FULL Development of the site to provide 16 residential units, associated parking, landscaping and play space | Land And Open Space Goldings Paddock Wood Tonbridge Kent Refused object on the following grounds: The egress onto Badsell road has poor visibility and is therefore a hazard both to people leaving the development and vehicles travelling along Badsell Road The application and the comments from the parking officer acknowledge that there is insufficient parking provided for the number of dwellings. In addition to this the proposal will result in the loss of an area of open grass space that is currently used as parking by residents of the flats in the Goldings. The parking officer acknowledges that the area of the Goldings and Ringden Avenue already has insufficient parking for residents and this has been exacerbated by the loss of garage areas which have been given over to further development. The Council agrees with this assessment. This area already suffers from regular foul drainage overflows in houses and the street and it is not clear how the outflows from such a sizeable development can be accommodated . No modelling has been provided by Southern Water to indicate that this can be added to the system at the same point as the large development at Mascalls Farm without increasing the number of overflows. Paddock Wood is an area of critical drainage and as such the building over of green space and removal of mature trees at this location is not acceptable. Loss of amenity space and play space for children



The next meeting will take place at 7.00 pm on Monday 21st of March ,2022

in the Winter Hall, St Andrews Church, Maidstone Road.
