The Committee considered an application for planning permission for the demolition of the existing school building and development of a 2 1/2 storey academy building, single storey animal welfare and horticulture building and single storey construction workshop (academic use); provision of a replacement car-park, hard-court sports areas (including a MUGA), woodland walk, wildlife areas and associated landscaping; and temporary use of the adjacent former sports field/open space (only during the construction phase) as a constructors compound, staff parking area and student drop-off/pick-up (amended plans and further information) at The Iffley Academy, Iffley Turn, Oxford, OX4 4DU.

 

The Planning Officer:

·         Reported minor typographical corrections to the report

o   The landscaping plan shows the exact parking provision proposed.

o   1.1.1. should read section 21 not section 12.

o   P.19 the title should read ‘Design and impact on heritage assets’

o   10.21 should read ‘will not’ instead of ‘may’.

o   10.21 should read section 66 and 72 not section 16.

o   18.1 This should read that the initial energy statement did not meet the 20%

o   20.1 The conclusion should include impact on all heritage assets, not just the conservation area.

·         Confirmed the number of parking spaces, layout and provision of spaces for a minibus, construction, and refuse collection were as set out in the landscape plan.

·         Recommended adding a condition that the existing building must be demolished on completion of the replacement buildings.

·         Recommended amending the lighting condition (25) to allow low level lighting to be on after 5.30pm, to allow workers to safely leave the site after working hours.

 

There was no-one registered to speak against the application.

 

Kay Willett (Head Teacher) and Paul Haworth (Planning Agent) spoke in support of the application, and John Gorman (Head of Design) andNasir Khawaja (Project Director) attended to answer questions.

 

The Committee noted that the car parking provision was relatively high because of the much lower student:staff ratio, and most pupils had to travel by car. They were satisfied that there were suitable arrangements for safe access to the site and minimising disruption to pupils during the construction phase.

 

On being proposed, seconded, and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer recommendation including adding one condition and amending one condition as recommended above.

 

East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

 

(a)   approve application 17/03380/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to

·           the 28 required planning conditions and 2 informatives set out in section 21 of the report (amending condition 25 to permit low level lighting after 5.30pm to allow safe exit)

·           and one additional condition requiring the existing building to be demolished on completion of the replacement buildings;

and grant planning permission; and

(b)   delegateauthority to the Head of Planning, Sustainable Development and Regulatory Services to finalise the recommended conditions as set out in the report including such refinements, amendments, additions and/or deletions as the Head of Planning, Sustainable Development and Regulatory Services considers reasonably necessary.
