Provision Of An Overflow Car Park (Up To An Additional 140 Spaces) To The East Of Existing Car Park And Alterations To Existing Car Park

 

Following questions from Members, an officer advised that:

 

·                    the moat was not strictly part of the application.  However, recent reports that the water in the moat was contaminated by algae as a result of insecticides used at the site, and was poisoning the fish and ducks in the moat, would be fed back to the contractors; 

 

·                    the car park, which was on a flood plain, would be used as an overspill car park.  Furthermore, the Environment Agency had not identified any additional flood risks. The car park would not be in continuous use,  would be properly managed as the Museum would be required to put in place an event management strategy;

 

·                    improved signage and some additional parking restrictions on Pinner view would mitigate against any increase in vehicular traffic to the site.

 

DECISION:  GRANTED planning permission for the development described in the application and submitted plans subject to conditions and informatives, as amended by the addendum.

 

The Committee wished it to be recorded that the decision to grant the application was unanimous.

Report of the Divisional Director of Planning.

Minutes:

The Committee received a report of the Divisional Director of Planning which set out a resolution in respect of planning application P/2418/12, which sought an extension of time for the completion of the S106 Planning Obligation in connection with the above application.

 

Following a question from a Member, the Chair advised that the reason for seeking an 8 week extension for completing the S106, was set out in the report. 

 

A Member proposed a motion that the extension be granted for a four week period only.  The motion was seconded, put to the vote and lost.

 

RESOLVED:  That the Committee’s resolution in respect of planning application P/2418/12, be amended as follows:

 

1.                  GRANT planning permission subject to conditions the completion of a section 106 Planning Obligation by 16th March 2015.  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 Planning Obligation and to agree any minor amendments to the conditions or the Planning Obligation.

 

2.                  That if the section 106 Planning Obligation is not completed by 16th March 2015,  then it is recommended to delegate the decision to REFUSE planning permission 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 cycle parking on street / cycle access, training and economic development, and legal/administrative matters, would fail to secure the provision of the above 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.
