Demolition of existing buildings and erection of two storey building to provide office space (Use Class B1a). Provision of car parking, cycle stores, bin stores and amenity space with associated landscaping.
The Committee considered an application (19/01774/FUL) for planning permission for the demolition of existing buildings and erection of two storey building to provide office space (Use Class B1a). Provision of car parking, cycle stores, bin stores and amenity space with associated landscaping (Amended).
The Planning Officer presented the report and advised the Committee that the planning officers have not yet received a response from the Environment Agency regarding the revised plans and additional information that had been submitted in response to the comments on the application.
Accordingly it was recommended that the approval of this application be delegated to the Acting Head of Planning Services, subject to the Environment Agency removing their objection and that finalising the proposed conditions should also be delegated to the Head of Planning Services.
In reaching its decision, the Committee considered all the information put before it and concluded that the development was a welcome and innovative re-purposing of an underused industrial site.
After debate and on being proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the planning officer’s revised recommendation.
On being put to the vote the Committee agreed the resolution as set out below.
The West Area Planning Committee resolved to:
1. agree to delegate authority to the Acting Head of Planning Services to approve the application, subject to the Environment Agency removing their objection and for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 12 of the report and grant planning permission.
2. agree to delegate authority to the Acting Head of Planning Services to:
· finalise the recommended conditions as set out in the report including such refinements, amendments, additions and/or deletions as the Acting Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary;
· and issue the planning permission.
