NOTED

 

1.    The introduction by the Planning Decisions Manager, Andy Bates, clarifying the proposal.

2.    The application had been amended from the previously approved planning application. Objections were received regarding the first planning application which was approved under delegated authority and not at a public committee which would have allowed residents to comment.

3.    No.92 Old Park Ridings submitted a further objection since the agenda was published. They re-affirm their concern about the proposal and say since the roadworks in Green Lanes have started there has been an increase in traffic on this road.

4.    The deputation of Mr Michael Donegan & Mr Toby Clarke (shared 5 minutes).

5.    The statement of Councillor Milne as Grange Ward Councillor.

6.    The response by Mr Philip Hughes (Agent) on behalf of the applicant.

7.    Members’ debate and questions responded to by officers.

8.    The following comments and issues were raised:

·         Overlooking issues regarding No.126 Old Park Ridings.

·         There were enough 1 bedroom properties in the borough.

·         Cannot penalise the developer regarding historic deaths and accidents in Old Park Ridings.

·         Loophole in the planning system, as planning permission was granted for two 4 bed properties in 2016 and now the developer was seeking further planning permission for a block of flats and a 4 bedroom family home.

·         A request for a condition to demonstrate the 45 degree line used in the development drawings by the provision of further detailed plans.

·         This was an overdevelopment. The street scene would be changing from a detached house to flats.

9.    The recommendation was supported by the majority of the Committee 4 votes for and 2 against.

 

AGREED that planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in the report and an additional condition requiring details of evidence of compliance with adopted Council guidance in terms of the relationship between the proposed buildings and the adjoining properties.
