18/02918/OUT: 17 Between Towns Road, Oxford, OX4 3LX pdf icon PDF 262 KB

Site address: 17 Between Towns Road, Oxford, OX4 3LX.

 

Proposal: Outline application (seeking approval of access, appearance, layout and scale) for the erection of three storey building consisting of 6 x 2 bed flats (Use Class C3); provision of private amenity space, car parking, cycle and waste storage as per approved 15/02245/OUT.

 

 

Reason at Committee

Members resolved at the East Area Planning Committee held on 16th January 2019 to approve planning permission for the proposed development subject to a legal agreement to provide an off-site financial contribution towards affordable housing.

The Policy position in relation to the application of adopted Policy HP4 for decision making has been altered. Consequently an off-site financial contribution towards the provision of affordable housing is no longer required and therefore the application needs to be reported back to Committee.

 

 

Recommendation: East Area Planning Committee is recommended to:

 

1.    approve the application for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 11 of the report and grant planning permission; and

 

2.    delegate authority to the 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 Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary.

The Committee considered an application for outline planning permission (seeking approval of access, appearance, layout and scale) for the erection of three storey building consisting of 6 x 2 bed flats (Use Class C3); provision of private amenity space, car parking, cycle and waste storage (as per approved 15/02245/OUT) at 17 Between Towns Road, Oxford, OX4 3LX.

 

Members noted that they had resolved at the East Area Planning Committee held on 16 January 2019 to approve planning permission for this development subject to a legal agreement to provide an off-site financial contribution towards affordable housing provision.  The policy position in relation to the application of adopted Policy HP4 for decision making had been altered and consequently this contribution could no longer be sought. Therefore the application was reported back to Committee for re-determination in light of the policy change.

 

On being proposed, seconded, and put to the vote the Committee agreed to approve the application and accept the officer’s recommendations.

 

East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

 

1.    approve the application for the reasons given in the report and subject to the 17 required planning conditions set out in section 11 of the report and grant outline planning permission; and

 

2.    delegate authority to the 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 Head of Planning Services considers reasonably necessary.
