i. The proposal does not demonstrate significant or material changes to the previous application
ii. The proposal constitutes over development of the site
iii. The proposed development will be too close to the existing dwelling, providing for loss of amenity due to lack of outdoor space, loss of privacy and proximal noise
iv. The distance from principal windows does not meet minimum standards
v. The proposed development site will provide too little outdoor space for the proposed dwelling.
