Report of the Divisional Director of Planning.

 

Minutes:

In accordance with the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, a report of the Divisional Director of Planning which sought approval to extend the deadline for finalising the S106 Planning Obligation in connection with planning application P/0412/14 for the redevelopment of the Anmer Lodge/Stanmore car park site, was admitted late to the agenda to enable Members to consider all information relevant to the item before them for decision.

 

Following questions and comments from Members, an officer advised that:

 

·                    the draft Planning Obligation was still being prepared and the extension was sought to ensure that there was sufficient time for officers to complete the necessary legal and administration work;

 

·                    no changes had been made to the S106 agreement since the application had been agreed at Planning Committee in April 2014.

 

RESOLVED:  That the Committee’s resolution in respect of planning application P/0412/14 be amended as follows:

 

1.                  GRANT planning permission, subject to conditions and informatives reported, and the completion of a section 106 Planning Obligation by 31 August 2014;.

 

2.                  the delegation to the Divisional Director of Planning, in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance Services, for the sealing of the Section 106 Planning Obligation and to agree any minor amendments to the conditions or the Planning Obligation be agreed;

 

3.                  should the section 106 Planning Obligation not be completed by 31 August 2014, the decision to REFUSE planning permission be delegated to the Divisional Director of Planning for the following reason:

 

1.                  The proposed development, in the absence of a Planning Obligation to provide affordable housing within the development; to fund the provision of infrastructure directly related to the development; and to provide necessary commitments in relation to the provision of open space on the site, travel planning, economic development and legal/administrative matters, would fail to secure the provision of affordable housing on the site and would fail to adequately mitigate the impact of the development on the wider area, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework, Policies 3.11 and 8.2 of the London Plan, Policies CS1 J, CS1 Z of the Harrow Core Strategy, Policies DM11,  DM19, DM43, and DM50 of the Harrow Development Management Policies Local Plan document, and the provisions of Harrow’s Planning Obligations supplementary planning document.
