The proposal does not provide adequate facilities to enable vehicles to enter and leave the
proposed parking spaces in a satisfactory and safe manner and therefore the interests of road
safety are compromised and would therefore be contrary to Policy DM2 (Design Quality for New
Development) of the Isle of Wight Core Strategy.
The access is unsatisfactory to serve the proposed development by reason of unacceptable
visibility when exiting the site and viewing to the south of those vehicles approaching from St
Johns Road and turning into Monkton Street from the west and would therefore be contrary to
Policy DM2 (Design Quality for New Development) of the Isle of Wight Core Strategy.
The formation and use of an additional access onto the 'B' classified road Monkton Street at this
point would add unduly to the hazards of highway users by virtue of its proximity to the
signalised junction of Monkton Street with St Johns Hill and the signalised pedestrian crossing
within Monkton Street located to the south of the proposed access and would therefore be
contrary to Policy DM2 (Design Quality for New Development) of the Isle of Wight Core Strategy.
* Note For Ryde Town Councils Planning, Regeneration and Environment
Ryde Town Council agreed at its Planning, Regeneration and Environment Committee
meeting on 13 April 2021 the following:
1 - Ryde Town Council raised no objection to the proposed extension, subject to a
guarantee that any windows on the proposed first floor extension which overlook the
neighbouring property should be glazed with frosted or obscure glass.
2 - Ryde Town Council objected to the proposed off street parking on access and safety
grounds as laid out in the Island Roads report.
Therefore Ryde Town Council agreed to recommend a split decision on
this application.
