Sue Stewart from Littlemore Parish Council spoke against the application. The Parish Council was mostly in favour but raised concerns about access to the Science Park; the increase in traffic (including after the SAE Institute closes in November and new occupiers move in); the bus service would need to improve to cope with more residents; and the need for traffic calming.

 

Chris Struthers (representing the applicant, Catalyst) spoke in support of the application.

 

In reaching its decision, the Committee considered all the information put before it including the officer’s report and presentation; the speakers’ presentations; answers to questions put to the officers; and officers’ professional advice.

 

On being proposed, seconded and put to the vote the Committee agreed to approve the application, with the officer’s revised recommendation and the inclusion of a condition to secure and agree the details of a suitable bridge and/or foot/cycle path link to the science park and railway.

 

The East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

1.    approve application 18/02303/RES for the reasons given in the report and subject to (2) below and the required  ...  view the full minutes text for item 107.
