RECOMMENDATION A

 

The Planning Committee was asked to:

 

1)    agree the reasons for approval as set out in the report; and

2)    grant planning permission subject to the conditions in Appendix 1 of the report and the Addendum and 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 a legal agreement  under section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and other powers with the following Heads of Terms:

 

a.    development to be Resident Permit Restricted - with the exception of disabled persons, no resident of the development would obtain a Residents’ Parking Permit within the Controlled Parking Zone;

b.    an additional £1,500 contribution towards the cost of amending the traffic order; and

c.    legal fees - payment of Harrow Council’s reasonable costs in the preparation of the legal agreement.

 

RECOMMENDATION B

 

That if, by 22October 2020 or such extended period as may be agreed in writing by the Interim Chief Planning Officer in consultation with the Chair of the Planning Committee, the section 106 Planning Obligation was not completed, then delegate the decision to the Chief Planning Officer to refuseplanning permission for the appropriate reason. The proposed development, in the absence of a legal agreement to ensure a car-free development through the restriction of resident parking permits for future occupiers of the proposed dwellings, would result in increased parking stress in the locality, in a sustainable location, to the detriment of the Councils aim to reduce reliance on the private motor car in sustainable locations. The proposal was therefore contrary to Policy 6.13 of the London Plan (2016), Policy T6 of the Draft London Plan (2019) Policy CS1.R of the Core Strategy (2012), and policies DM42, DM43 and DM50 of the Development Management Policies Local Plan (2013).

Minutes:

PROPOSAL: outline application for Access Only - redevelopment to provide four storey building with basement comprising of sporting higher education facility, student accommodation, hotel, medical diagnostic centre; plant and associated works (as amended by the Addendum and Supplemental Addendum).

 

In accordance with the Protocol on Planning Committee Meetings (7.2), the Committee received representations from Mr Sean McGrath (for the applicant). He outlined reasons for seeking refusal of the officer recommendations, and subsequently requesting that the application be granted.

 

The Chair proposed that the Committee be minded to disagree with officer recommendations, and that the application be brought back to Committee for determination at a later date. 

 

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

 

The Committee resolved to refuse the officer recommendations.

 

RECOMMENDATION A

 

The Planning Committee was asked to refuse the application for the following reasons:

 

1)    The proposed uses comprising of a hotel, sporting higher education facility including student accommodation and medical diagnostics centre would give rise to inappropriate uses on the site which would be in direct conflict with the site’s allocation for community outdoor sport development and by reason of the site’s low accessibility, sitting outside of a town centre and insufficient evidence to demonstrate the need for the uses proposed, would give rise to an unsustainable development, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), policies 3.16, 3.19 and 4.5 of The London Plan (2016), policies S5, E10G, SD7, S1 and S3B of The Draft London Plan - Intend to Publish (2019), core policies CS1 Z, F and L of the Harrow Core Strategy (2012), policies DM 34, DM 46 and DM 48B of the Harrow Development Management Policies Local Plan (2013) and Site MOS5 of the Harrow Site Allocations (2013);

 

2)    The proposed development would result in a direct loss of protected designated open space and would not provide a use which is ancillary or appropriate to the existing open space, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), policy 7.18 of The London Plan (2016), policy G4 of The Draft London Plan - Intend to Publish (2019), core policy CS1 F of the Harrow Core Strategy (2012) and Policy DM18 of the Harrow Development Management Policies Local Plan (2013);

 

3)    The proposed development, in the absence of a Transport Assessment and Travel Plan, fails to demonstrate the impacts of the development on the surrounding highway network, and to propose measures to promote sustainable travel modes and to reduce the effects of travel by car. Insufficient information has therefore been provided to demonstrate that the proposals would not result in unacceptable harm to the surrounding highway network through increased pressure on local parking amenity and on local transport infrastructure from excessive vehicle trips, contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2019), policies 6.3, 6.10 and 6.13 of The London Plan 2016), policies T1, T2, T4, and T6 of the Draft London Plan – Intend to Publish (2019), policy 1 of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, policy CS1 R of the Harrow Core  ...  view the full minutes text for item 408.
