The Committee also had before them the officer’s report and appendices relating to application 13/01383/OUT considered by this committee on 24 September 2013 to which the applications related.
The planning officer recommended removal of the first condition suggested for application 14/03201/RES (time limits) as this was dealt with by conditions on outline permission13/01383/OUT.
Councillor Haines addressed the Committee, raising concerns about the adverse impact of this development on flooding, sewage, and traffic in Marston.
Alex Robinson, on behalf of the Barton LLP, addressed the Committee.
Members of the Committee asked questions about the applications, in particular about parking and cycle parking in the public spaces and at the school; the capacity and management of the sewer system; and traffic movements through the development. Concerns about parking at the sports pavilion and the school could be addressed in future permissions. The need for adequate planting to prevent access from the open space to the A40 at the entrance to the development was noted.
Motions to grant permission for each application were proposed and put to the vote in turn.
The Committee resolved to:
1. Approve the reserved matters application 14/03201/RES and confirm compliance with condition 4 (scheme of enabling infrastructure) of 13/01383/OUT with the following conditions:
