They noted the building will have a ground floor entry pavilion including entrance lobby, changing facilities at back of house; external car parking will be provided at grade and in the undercroft, including 9 accessible spaces and bicycle parking; and additional parking to be provided at Plot B.

The Committee resolved to:

 

1.    approve application 17/03419/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required 19 planning conditions set out in section 11 of the report plus an additional condition to secure energy generation measures, and grant planning permission; and

The Planning Officer reported that:

·         Policy HP14, relating to privacy and daylight, had been taken into account although it was not referenced in the report.

·         Sections 14 and 15 (human rights and crime and disorder) should make reference to a recommendation to approve.

·         No legal agreement was required although it was referenced in section 11.2 of the report.

 

John Norridge and Martin Louden, local residents, spoke objecting to the application and set out their concerns, and accompanied by Joanna Norridge answered questions from the Committee. 

 

The Committee asked questions of the officers and speakers. In discussion they noted concerns over the specific relationship of the proposed development to the boundaries and rear elevations of 218 and 220 London Road, including the boundary at no218 and the potential overlooking into windows to and from the new development. The legal adviser suggested that a site visit may be helpful. This was formally proposed, seconded and agreed on being put to the vote as members considered that this would help them visualise the relationship between the properties and determine the application.

 

The Committee resolved to:

 

defer consideration of application 17/02717/FUL to a future meeting to allow members of the committee, accompanied by planning officers, to formally visit the site to see the relationship between the existing houses and the proposed development and the likely impact of these on each other.
