Planning turned down

The planning application for a new three bedroom detached dwelling on land adjacent to Corfe House, for Mr Parkhouse, has not been approved.
Refused for the following reasons:
1. The Local Planning Authority is seeking to improve the quality of development in its District. The proposed dwelling, by reason of an irregular fenestration pattern, would fail to project a visually balanced design and would consequently have a detrimental impact on the character of the surrounding area. The application is therefore contrary to Policy 2 of the Cornwall Structure Plan - 2004; Policy DVS1 of the District Local Plan - April 1999; Planning Policy Statement (PPS1) - Delivering Sustainable Development (paras 33 - 39); and the advice contained within the adopted supplementary planning guidance - the North Cornwall Design Guide - October 1997 - Section (E).
2. In the absence of information to demonstrate otherwise, the Local Planning Authority is not convinced that the height of the proposed dwelling would assimilate to an acceptable level with the immediate surroundings. The application is therefore contrary to Policy 2 of the Cornwall Structure Plan - 2004; Policy DVS1 of the District Local Plan - April 1999; Planning Policy Statement (PPS1) - Delivering Sustainable Development (paras 33 - 39); and the advice contained within the adopted supplementary planning guidance - the North Cornwall Design Guide - October 1997 - Section (D).
