7.8Whilst it is acknowledged, having considered the representation made by theowner of Wyatts House, that the first floor of this property has recently beenused for residential purposes and could reasonably revert to such a use in thefuture, the primary function of the building at present is a commercial one.Furthermore, in conjunction with the above points, the vent stack is set awayfrom the rear elevation of Wyatts House by 4m, thereby reducing theprominence of the pipes from a residential perspective.7.9In addition, the vent stack - comprising four 5.2m tall pipes (10cm in diameter)situated in a linear formation - do not form a solid structure or mass that couldpotentially reduce light reception to the windows contained within the rearelevation of Wyatts House. Consequently, should the first floor of thiscommercial property revert to a residential use, it is not considered that therewould be any harm to the amenities of future occupants. 7.10The ground floor of Wyatts House is an established commercial business and,as such, it is not considered that the vent stack results in any harm to amenity inthis respect.Other Matters:7.11Given the nature of the development and its function in relative proximity toWyatts House, it was considered appropriate to consult the Fire ProtectionOfficer and the Environmental Health Officer in order to determine the potentialenvironmental impacts of the vent stack. Having regard to the specifications ofthe vent stack, their function and appropriate regulations, both officers do notconsider that any harm exists in terms of omissions or fire safety. It isconsidered that the vent stack accords with Policy N12 of the Three RiversLocal Plan 1996-2011.Summary:7.12Having regard to the above points, and on balance, it is not considered that thevent stack results in any adverse harm to the character and appearance of theConservation Area, nor does it result in any harm to the amenities of theadjacent property, Wyatts House. The proposal therefore complies withPolicies GEN1, C1, N12 and Appendix 1 of the Three Rivers Local Plan 1996-2011 and National Policy Guidance as contained within PPS1 and PPS5.8.Recommendation8.1That RETROSPECTIVE PLANNING PERMISSION BE GRANTED subject tothe following conditions:-C1Notwithstanding the submitted drawings, and within one month of thedate of this decision, details of the type and colour of paint to be used to/var/filecabinet/temp/converter_assets/07/f9/07f95a48db64e15e9f79006081bf5bc3dcb0444d.doc

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
