Declarations of interest

Minutes:

Minute 78 and 79: Councillors Chapman and Simm declared that their positions on the Shareholders group for OCHL could give rise to a public perception of bias and so they would leave the room for debate on these items.

Councillor Clarkson arrived after these items had concluded.

 

Minute 80: Councillors Roz Smith and Garden stated that although they were both a signatory to the call in they approached the application with an open mind, would listen to all the arguments and weigh up all the relevant facts before coming to a decision.

 

Councillor Cook stated that as a Council appointed trustee for Oxford Preservation Trust and a member of Oxford Civic Society he had taken no part in those organisations’ discussions or decision making regarding any of the applications before the Committee and that he was approaching the applications with an open mind, would listen to all the arguments and weigh up all the relevant facts before coming to a decision.

Councillors Chapman and Simm left the room for the duration of the debate on this item.

 

The Committee considered an application for the erection of two residential buildings (three storeys) comprising 25 residential dwellings (C3 Use Class) with associated access, parking and landscape arrangements at Former Rose Hill Community Centre, Land bounded by Desborough Crescent, Lenthall Road and The Oval, Rose Hill, Oxford.

 

The Planning Officer advised

·         References to a S106 legal agreement in paras 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 in the recommendations should be removed as the Council was the landowner so it was not possible to secure a S106 agreement. The affordable housing and double yellow lines would be secured by condition.

·         Para 10.15 should refer to 100% intermediate affordable housing not 100% socially rented housing.

 

Alan Wylde (representing the applicant) and Peter Wilkinson (local resident and representing Rose Hill Tenants' and Residents' Association) spoke in support of the application.

 

After debate and on being proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to approve the application with removal of references to the S106 agreement and the addition of conditions to secure the provision of affordable housing and the provision of double yellow lines on The Oval.

 

East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

 

1.    approve application 18/02817/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required 19 planning conditions set out in section 12 of the report, plus 2 conditions to secure affordable housing and provide double yellow lines at The Oval, and grant planning permission; and

 

2.    delegate authority to the Acting Head of Planning Services to finalise the recommended conditions as set out in the report including such refinements, amendments, additions and/or deletions as the Acting Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary and issue the planning permission.
