The Committee considered an application for planning permission for the installation of an underground 33kV electricity cable from the National Grid Cowley substation to Redbridge Park and Ride and Horspath Road and the use of existing park and ride land for EV charging (amended description). The proposed route ran from Land running from land south Of Grenoble Road to Horspath Depot (Horspath Road) and also to Redbridge Park and Ride (Abingdon Road), Grenoble Road, Oxford.

The Planning Officer reported that Littlemore Parish Council had made no comments and the consultation period had now expired. She recommended, and the Committee agreed, changes to the recommendation to add ‘and subject to no new material issues being raised by Blackbird Leys Parish Council’; to amend conditions numbered

  • 3: Construction Traffic Management Plan
  • 12: arboricultural watching brief
  • 13: archaeological written scheme of investigation

to conditions requiring compliance with the documentation submitted by the applicant and agreed by officers; and to delete condition 7: appropriate ground gas risk assessment as this had been completed.

Martin Cole (representing the applicant) attended and answered questions from the Committee.

The Committee asked questions of the officers and considered all the information before them. They asked about the phasing of the works and noted that these would be detailed in the construction management plan required by condition 15. They requested measures to ensure a good standard of reinstatement of the hard surfaces and noted that the agreed Arboricultural Method Statement would ensure no damage to trees along the route so no reinstatement planting would be required.

On being debated, proposed, seconded and put to the vote, the Committee agreed with the officer’s recommendation to approve the application.

 

East Area Planning Committee resolved to:

1.    approve application 20/00320/FUL for the reasons given in the report and subject to

  • no new material issues being raised by Blackbird Leys Parish Council;
  • the required 14 planning conditions set out in section 13 of the report
  • deleting condition 7 in the report and amending conditions numbered 3, 12, and 13 in the report to require compliance with the documentation submitted by the applicant and agreed by officers; and
  • 5 informatives as set out in section 14 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.
