The proposed development, in the absence of a Legal Agreement to provide appropriate improvements, benefits and monitoring that directly related to the development, would fail to adequately mitigate the impact of the development on the wider area and provide for necessary social, environmental and physical infrastructural improvements arising directly from the development, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), Policies 3.6, 3.12, 5.2, 6.3, 6.13 and 8.2 of the London Plan (2016), Policies H4, S4, SI2, T6, T6.1 and DF1 of the draft London Plan (2019) – intend to publish version, Policy CS1 of the Harrow Core Strategy (2012) and Policies DM12, DM28, DM42, DM50, of the Harrow Development Management Policies Local Plan (2013).

2-02 - 35-69 Imperial Drive - P-0247-20 pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

PROPOSAL:  addition of one floor to each building to provide two by one bed flats with balconies (additional 6 flats in total); patio area to ground floor flats; external alterations; parking; landscaping; and refuse and cycle storage.

 

Following questions and comments from a Member, an officer advised that:

 

·                     Residents would have to apply for parking permits in order to park at the development.

 

Councillor Marilyn Ashton proposed refusal on the following grounds:

 

1)            The proposed development, due to its inappropriate design, represents an incongruous addition to the host building and would be out of keeping with the character and appearance of the original buildings and would fail to respect the character of the surrounding neighbouring properties and pattern of development in the surrounding area, contrary to policies 7.4B and 7.6B of the London Plan (2016) and policy D3 of the draft London Plan (2019), policy CS 1 B of the Harrow Core Strategy (2012), policy DM 1 of the Harrow Development Policies London Plan (2013) and the adopted Supplementary Planning Document: Residential Design Guide (2010); and

 

2)            The proposal, by reason of its siting in close proximity to neighbouring houses, would result in an overbearing development, resulting in an unacceptable loss of outlook and visual amenity to the rear habitable rooms and rear gardens of the neighbouring occupiers, contrary to policy 7.6B of the London Plan (2016) and D2 of the draft London Plan (2019) policy DM1 of the Development Management Policies (2013) and the adopted Supplementary Planning Document: Residential Design Guide (2010).

 

The motion was seconded by Councillor Anjana Patel, put to the vote and agreed.

 

The Committee resolved to refuse the officer recommendations.

Minutes:

PROPOSAL: redevelopment to provide two storey building with habitable roof space to be used as house in multiple occupation (HMO) for up to 17 residents (sui generis) (as amended by the Addendum).

 

Councillor Marilyn Ashton proposed refusal on the following grounds:

 

1)            The proposed development by reason of the excessive number of occupiers that it would accommodate would represent an overly intensive use of the site and would provide a poor quality living arrangement for future occupiers and would cause excessive levels of disturbance to the detriment of the living conditions of future occupiers and the amenities of adjoining occupiers.  The proposed development would therefore be contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019) policy 7.6B of the London Plan (2016) D1 and D6 of the draft London Plan (2019) policies DM1, DM30 and DM42 of the Harrow Development Management Policies London Plan (2013).

 

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

2)            Grant planning permission subject to authority being delegated to the Interim Chief Planning Officer in consultation with the Director of Legal and Governance Services for the completion of the Section 106 legal agreement and other enabling legislation and issue of the planning permission and subject to minor amendments to the conditions (set out in Appendix 1 of the report) or the legal agreement. The Section 106 Agreement Heads of Terms would cover the following matters:

 

i.              Prior to occupation of the development notify all prospective owners, residents, occupiers or tenants of the units of the development that they would not be eligible for a Resident Parking Permit or Visitors Parking Permit to park a motor vehicle where a CPZ had been implemented unless they had a Disabled Person’s Badge.

ii.            Legal Fees: Payment of Harrow Council’s reasonable costs in the  preparation of the legal agreement.

iii.           Planning Administration Fee: Payment of £1,580 administration fee for the monitoring and compliance of the legal agreement.

 

RECOMMENDATION B

 

That if, by 31 July 2020 or such extended period as may be agreed in writing by the Interim Chief Planning Officer, the section 106 Planning Obligation was not completed, then delegate the decision to the Interim Chief Planning Officer to REFUSE planning permission for the following reason:

 

The proposed development in the absence of a legal agreement for the restriction of resident parking permits would result in a detrimental impact on the capacity and safety of the Highway network, would fail to comply with the requirements of policies DM42 and DM50 of the Development Management Policies Local Plan 2013, policy AAP 19 of the Harrow and Wealdstone Area Action Plan (2013) and the Supplementary Planning Document: Planning Obligations (2013).
