Demolition of detached house and annex and erection of 3 storey building for 3x3, 3x2, and 6x1 bed flats, with undercroft parking, landscaping and bin stores


The Executive Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report on the above application.  An update report was tabled at the meeting which set out further information on transport, site levels, residential amenity, affordable housing, ecology and sustainability.  The recommended Heads of Terms relating to Affordable Housing had been amended and an additional condition regarding windows was recommended.  The report also set out statements from objectors.


Comments and objections were received and considered.


Objectors Chris Dodson and Mark Ashton, the applicant’s agent Edward Mather and Ward Councillor Liz Terry attended the meeting and addressed the Committee on this application.


It was proposed and agreed at the meeting that the application be deferred for a site visit to consider various issues. The Committee had previously agreed to cease in-person site visits when social distancing measures had been introduced at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic (Minute 142 of the meeting held on 29 April 2020 refers) and officers were therefore authorised to devise and put in place a revised procedure that was compliant with the current COVID-19 related legislation and guidelines.


Resolved –


(1)      That consideration of application 200979/FUL be deferred for a site visit to consider issues including ground levels, the siting and bulk of the proposed building within its plot, boundary issues and parking;


(2)      That the Deputy Director of Planning, Transport and Regulatory Services be authorised to investigate and implement a revised site visit procedure that was compliant with current COVID-19 related legislation and guidelines.
