WARD: Edmonton Green

 

Minutes:

NOTED

 

1.    The introduction by Sharon Davidson, Planning Decisions Manager, clarifying the proposals and revised conditions.

2.    Since the completion of the report there have been a number of small technical changes made to the content of the application, in addition comments have been received from the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.  An update note was circulated, setting out their comments, the changes proposed, and the response received from the relevant consultees to these changes.

3.    Some further technical modifications have been made today. These include:

a.    The proposal to use clay as the capping material remains but, in the event, that there is insufficient material available at the source site, the applicant has requested the flexibility to use either Clay or Class A1 fill. One site for the source of the Clay has already been agreed with the Environment Agency and therefore does not require the sampling obligation set out in condition 3 of this report. A modification to this condition to reflect this is proposed and this has been agreed by the EA.  

b.    Amendment to the construction access arrangements. Originally it was proposed to access the site via the Orbital Business Park and exit via Leeside Road to the south. Due to the adhoc parking that takes place on this road and therefore the limited carriageway width remaining, this is not considered appropriate or the best solution. It is now therefore proposed to both access and exit the site via the Orbital Business Park. Traffic and Transportation have confirmed this is acceptable and that there is no longer a need for condition 7 as recommended in the report as this survey related to Leeside Road only. 

c.    Members attention is also drawn to the fact that access track around the site has been reduced from 8m to 5m in width. This has been the subject of consultation with the Environment Agency and no objections are raised. An amendment to condition 11 is required to reflect this.

4.    The combination of the technical changes proposed has resulted in a number of changes to conditions. For clarity I will set these out in full, picking up on those the subject of yesterday’s update note and the further small changes reflecting matters that have been modified today:

a. Condition 1 – Unchanged

b.  Condition 2 – Updated to reflect updated documents reflecting the changes already set out.

c.    Condition 3 - Unless the material is sourced from 73-75 Avenue Road, London NW8 6JD, development hereby permitted may not commence until a            scheme to sample any imported materials from other sites has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority.          The scheme shall be implemented as approved.

d.    Condition 4 - Prior to the commencement of any uses on any part of the permitted       development, a verification report demonstrating the completion of   works set out in the approved sampling scheme shall be submitted to, and approved in writing, by the Local Planning Authority. The report shall  ...  view the full minutes text for item 1029.
