17/01480/FUL: 4 Lime Walk Oxford OX3 7AE pdf icon PDF 511 KB

Site Address: 4 Lime Walk,  Oxford,  OX3 7AE,

 

Proposal: Demolition of former MOT facility (Use Class B2). Erection of three storey building to create 3 x 1-bed flats and 2 x 2-bed flats (Use Class C3). Erection of a single storey building to create 1 x 2-bed flat (Use Class C3). Provision of private amenity space, bin and cycle storage, alterations to landscaping and formation of 1no. disabled parking space (additional information).

           

Recommendation: East Area Planning Committee is recommended to:

 

Refuse the application for the following reason:

 

The application has failed to demonstrate that development of the site would not be viable if a contribution towards affordable housing were made. Consequently, the proposed development would not accord with the Development Plan and it would be inconsistent with the Framework objective of creating sustainable, inclusive and mixed communities.. Due to the exceptional level of need for affordable housing in Oxford full weight is afforded to the Development Plan.

Minutes:

The Committee considered an application for planning permission for the demolition of a former MOT facility (Use Class B2); erection of three storey building to create 3 x 1-bed flats and 2 x 2-bed flats (Use Class C3); erection of a single storey building to create 1 x 2-bed flat (Use Class C3); provision of private amenity space, bin and cycle storage, alterations to landscaping and formation of 1no. disabled parking space (additional information) at 4 Lime Walk,  Oxford,  OX3 7AE.

 

The Planning Officer in the presentation explained that the assessment of viability, undertaken by the Council’s independent assessor, concluded that a partial contribution to affordable housing far in excess of that offered by the applicant could be realistically required. The position statement requiring such affordable housing contributions from small sites had been tested and found sound at appeal.

 

She corrected an error in Paragraph 8.1 to add policy HP4 to the list of relevant policies: this had been taken into account in considering the application.

 

The Committee noted that, should this application be granted or an appeal received, a condition requiring the development to be car-free should be added or recommended by officers.

 

On being put to the vote the Committee agreed with the officer recommendation.

 

The Committee resolved to:

 

Refuse application17/01480/FUL for the following reason:

 

The application has failed to demonstrate that development of the site would not be viable if a contribution towards affordable housing were made. Consequently, the proposed development would not accord with the Development Plan and it would be inconsistent with the Framework objective of creating sustainable, inclusive and mixed communities. Due to the exceptional level of need for affordable housing in Oxford full weight is afforded to the Development Plan.
