Residential development for a total of six dwellings (net increase of 4 dwellings), comprising re-modelling of 49A and 51A George Street, two storey and single storey rear extensions, rear dormer windows and external alterations to form four apartments and demolition of existing warehouse and construction of two apartments.


The Executive Director for Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report on the above application.  An update report was tabled at the meeting which clarified the construction methodology and a number of other points in the original report. The update report recommended amendment of the proposed construction management condition to require submission of phasing arrangements, and amendment of other related conditions to ensure that various facilities were provided in relation to the relevant apartment, no later than first occupation of the relevant apartment. 


A verbal update was given at the meeting to explain that the central area policies referred to in the original report did not apply to this location, and to clarify that the affordable housing contribution referred to in the proposed Heads of Terms should be index-linked from the date of permission and payable on commencement of the development.


Comments and objections were received and considered.


Resolved –


(1)      That the Deputy Director of Planning, Transport and Regulatory Services be authorised to grant full planning permission for application 191144/FUL subject to completion of a S106 legal agreement by 30 January 2020 (unless a later date be agreed by the Deputy Director of Planning, Transport and Regulatory Services) to secure the Heads of Terms as set out in the original report and verbally amended at the meeting;


(2)      That, in the event of the requirements set out not being met, the Deputy Director of Planning, Transport and Regulatory Services be authorised to refuse permission;


(3)      That planning permission be subject to the conditions and informatives recommended in the original report, as amended by the update report, and with an additional informative regarding retention of the cobbled driveway;
