This would be contrary to Policies D1 and D4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002, Policy TD1 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan Part 1 2018 and paragraphs 127, 130, 170 and 172 of the NPPF 2018.

 

2.    The proposal would result in a lodd of ligh5 to the adjoining occupiers at 17 Scotland Close, detrimental to their residential amenity, contrary to Policies D1 and D4 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan 2002, Policy TD1 of the Waverley Borough Local Plan Part 1 2018 and paragraph 127 of the NPPF.
