50.    20/03083/FUL: 113 Normandy Crescent, Oxford, OX4 2TJ

The Committee considered an application (20/03083/FUL) for planning permission for the erection of a two storey rear extension and alterations to fenestration to existing dwelling; the erection of two storey side extension to provide 2 x 2-bed dwellings (Use Class C3); and the provision of private amenity space, car parking and bin and cycle stores and the formation of side passage to access rear gardens at 113 Normandy Crescent, OX4 2TJ.

The application was called in by Cllrs Kennedy Rowley, Pressel, Taylor, Munkonge, Fry, Lloyd-Shogbesan and Tanner for reasons of overdevelopment and parking pressures where there is no Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).

The Planning Officer presented the report and informed the Committee that a number of public comments had been received since the close of consultation period and publication of the report.  None of those comments raised new material issues which were not already fully addressed in the report.  In relation to a public comment about the size of the parking spaces proposed in the application she confirmed that they all complied with the appropriate standards. 

Mr Dogar, the applicant, spoke in favour of the application.

In reaching its decision, the Committee considered all the information put before it. The Committee acknowledged the level of public concern regarding the application, especially in regard to parking, but was satisfied that these matters had been satisfactorily addressed in the officer report and presentation. 

After debate and on being proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to approve the application.

 

The East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

1.    approve application 20/03083/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 12 of the report and subject to approval of a final energy statement and grant planning permission

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

·         agree the provision of a final energy statement in consultation with relevant consultees.

51.    20/01237/RES: Plots 8150 8200 And 9200, Alec Issigonis Way, Oxford

The Committee considered an application (20/01237/RES) for the approval of all reserved matters (access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale) for the development of Plots 8150, 8200 and 9200 on the Oxford Business Park by the erection of three detached buildings for business use (Class B1), with associated access, car parking, cycle parking, landscaping and services infrastructure as approved under planning permission 12/04124/EXT.

The Planning Officer presented the report and in response to a question from the Committee advised that the level of parking provision had been considered, and a Framework Travel Plan approved, as part of the original outline planning permission; that it was acceptable to the Highways Authority and complied with the adopted Local Plan; and that the specific parking arrangements would be managed by Condition 12 which required a Full Travel Plan for each of the plots prior to first occupation of each building.  Mr Moxon, representing the applicant, spoke in favour of the application.

In reaching its decision, the Committee considered all the information put before it.

After debate and on being proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to approve the application.

The East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

1.    approve application 20/01237/RES for the reasons given in the report and subject to the prior completion of an agreement or unilateral undertaking made pursuant to S106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and other enabling powers to secure the planning obligations which are referred to in the report and subject to the required planning conditions set out in section 12 of the report and informatives set out in section 13 of the report and subject to the approval of a final drainage strategy from the Lead Local Flood Authority.

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;

·         agree the provision of a final drainage strategy in consultation with relevant consultees;
