All Members except Councillor Perry stated that they had been lobbied.
The Committee considered the report and the urgent update report of the Head of Planning and Development.
Mrs Barham, an objector, and Mr Walker, for the applicant, addressed the meeting.
That subject to:
(a) The prior completion of a legal agreement to provide for the Heads of Terms set out in the report; AND
(b) The conditions set out in the report with the amendment of condition 21 (Vehicle Parking/Turning and Cycle Parking Areas) to include reference to the provision of a disabled parking bay as follows:
The approved details of the vehicle parking/turning and cycle parking areas associated with the residential development (including the provision of one disabled parking bay) shall be completed before the commencement of the use of the land or buildings to which they relate and shall thereafter be kept available for such use. No development, whether permitted by the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015 (or any Order revoking and re-enacting that Order, with or without modification) or not, shall be carried out on the areas indicated or in such a position as to preclude vehicular access to them.
Reason: Development without adequate parking/turning provision is likely to lead to parking inconvenient to other road users and in the interests of road safety and sustainability.
the Head of Planning and Development be given delegated powers to grant permission and to be able to settle or amend any necessary Heads of Terms and conditions in line with the matters set out in the recommendation and as resolved by the Planning Committee.
