Decision details

211728/OUT - Dellwood Hospital Liebenrood Road

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Outline application considering access, appearance, layout and scale for the partial demolition, retention and extension of existing building to form a care home (C2 use class) and ancillary accommodation, amended access arrangements, car parking and associated works (landscaping reserved for future consideration).

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 explained that the applicant had agreed to provide a construction phase employment and skills training plan and did not intend to take up the option of providing an equivalent financial contribution and therefore the plan could be secured by condition rather than a section 106 obligation.  It also explained that the use of the development as a C2 care home could also be secured by way of a planning condition rather than obligation.  The recommendation had been amended accordingly.

Comments and objections were received and considered.

Supporter Evelyn Williams, and John Horsman and Anna Ciesielska on behalf of the applicant, attended the meeting and addressed the Committee on this application.

Resolved –   

(1)      That outline planning permission for application 211728/OUT be granted, subject to the conditions and informatives as recommended in the original report, with the additional conditions set out in the update report;

(2)      That details of the pre-commencement reserved matters in respect of landscaping, external materials and the scheme of decentralised energy provision be submitted to members of the Committee and, if there were any significant concerns expressed, these matters be brought to Committee for approval.
