Following questions from Members an officer advised that:

 

·                     concerns regarding whether the façade of the proposed redevelopment would be in keeping with that of other buildings in the area, would be covered by condition 4;

 

·                     officers were satisfied that all requirements of the Planning Policy had been met.

 

A Member stated that, in her view, the proposed development would not be in keeping with the existing character of the area and proposed that the application be refused on the following grounds:

 

The proposed development is of inadequate design quality and fails to reflect the character of the area or the setting of the Old Church Lane and Stanmore Hill Conservation Areas, contrary to policies DM1 and DM7 of the Development Management Policies Local Plan, policy CS1.B of the Core Strategy and policies 7.1, 7.4, 7.6 and 7.8 of the London Plan.

 

The motion was seconded, put to the vote and lost.

 

DECISION:

 

1.                  GRANTED permission for the development described in the application and submitted plans, subject to the conditions and informatives reported, and the completion of a s.106 agreement before 13 October 2014, as amended by the addendum;

 

2.                  and the completion of a Section 106 agreement with the heads of terms set out below (subject to further negotiation and agreement);

 

3.                  authority to be given to the Divisional Director of Planning in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance Services for the sealing of the Section 106 agreement and to agree any minor amendments to the conditions or the legal agreement.

 

RECOMMENDATION B

 

1.                  That if the Section 106 Agreement is not completed by 13 October 2014 then it is recommended to delegate the decision to REFUSE planning permission to the Divisional Director of Planning on the grounds that:

 

The proposed development, in the absence of a Legal Agreement would fail to secure the provision of affordable housing on the site and would therefore fail to adequately mitigate the impact of the development on the wider area, and provide for necessary social and physical infrastructural improvements arising directly from the development, contrary to the NPPF  ...  view the full minutes text for item 50.
