1.1   The application relates to an existing detached flat-roofed single-storey building providing
      public toilet facilities. It is prominently located on the east side of Langstone Road,
      adjacent to The Ship Inn (Grade II Listed Building) and is situated within Langstone
      Conservation Area.

5     Consultations

      CHC        - Comments that there is no landscape or nature conservation significance and
                   raises no objection.
     AO        - The disabled toilet needs to comply with Part M of Building Regulations in
                 terms of internal size and level thresholds to entrance.

     CO        - Provision of pitched roof and change in external materials will be an
                 improvement to the appearance of the building, however, it was suggested that
                 some alteration to the detailing was required to make the final appearance

7    Planning Considerations

7.1 The originally submitted scheme was not considered acceptable given its prominent
     location on the Langstone Road frontage and its sensitive position within Langstone
     Conservation Area. However, through negotiation, the proposal has been amended to
     include traditional eaves and guttering detail and more appropriate materials that reflect
     the visual importance of this site.


That the Head of Development Control be authorised to GRANT PERMISSION for
application 01/50825/010 subject to the following condition:

1             NS   The works hereby permitted shall not be commenced until samples
                   and details of all external facing and roofing materials have been
                   submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority.
                   Thereafter only such approved materials and finishes shall be used
                   in carrying out the development.
