PROPOSAL:  Upgrading and regrading of existing sports pitches to create four natural grass pitches and one 3G synthetic pitch with floodlights and associated landscaping and security fencing (4.5m high ball stop fence and 1.2m-2m high pitch perimeter barrier), storage container and two team dugouts.

 

The officer verbally reported additional conditions attached to the planning application as follows: -

 

Page 142 Condition 4 to read ‘The floodlighting shall only be used between:-

0800 and 20.30’;

Page 143 Condition 6 to read ‘No floodlighting or other forms of external lighting, other than those shown on the approved plans,’;

Page 143 Condition 7 – delete as it was a duplication;

Page 143 Condition 8 – amend hours of approved lighting to be consistent with the athletics track ie to read 08.00 and 20.30;

Page 143 Condition 9 – delete as it was a duplication;

Page 144 Condition 10 – to read ‘Prior to the use of the new pitches, an Event Management Plan shall be submitted to the local planning authority and approved in writing, covering how travel arrangements, in particular parking for large scale events would be managed. The site shall thereafter be managed in accordance with the approved details of the Event Management Plan.’

 

The Committee received representations from an objector, Brian Stoker, and from a representative of the applicant, Scott Cranfield.

 

A Member sought clarification as to the proposal for parking at the site and questioned how a decision could be made without all of the relevant information.  The officer advised that a separate application had been submitted to address overspill parking and that the application before Members had been submitted at this time as funding had been secured from the Football Association; this was in the sum of approximately £400,000.  If the plans were revised, there would be consultation but concerns could be addressed through the use of conditions.  It was not possible to prevent a property transaction by the use of a planning condition.

 

A Member expressed the view that the expected funding from the Football Association should not be jeopardised.  In response to a Member’s question, the officer advised that the requirements had been met in terms of funding.

 

A Member proposed a deferral of the application on the following grounds:

 

There were uncertainties in terms of parking and consideration of the application should be deferred until the application in relation to overspill parking was before Members so that both applications could be considered together.

 

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

 

A Member proposed refusal on the following grounds:

 

There is a lack of sufficient information to demonstrate that the parking impacts of this application can be mitigated to an acceptable level, to avoid unacceptable harm to local residential amenity, contrary to policies DM1, DM42, DM43, DM46 and DM48 of the Local Plan, CS1 of the Core Strategy, and 6.13 of the London Plan.

 

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