Councillors have turned down an application to create a two storey chalet bungalow on land off High Road in Leavenheath.
Objections were received about the scheme which would create a two storey building from a partly built bungalowon land south of Poplars.
The bungalow, which received planning permission for a single storey building, has been constructed to eaves height but does not meet the approved plans as an integral garage has not been built.
At Babergh District Council’s planning committee councillors rejected officers recommendation that the new application be approved.
This was on grounds of over development and visual impact.
Under the new plan a three bedroomed deatched chalet style two storey home would be built with parking.
The upper floor would be integrated into the roof creating a chalet style building. But four letters of objection had been received saying the increase in the size of the building would harm the character of the area, would overlook surrounding properties and not provide adequate parking without a garage,
Officers state in their report that the existing permission establishes the principle of a three bedroomed property on the site and the proposal would not appear harmful otr cramped.
