Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Strategic site within the strategic submitted Local Development Plan


It was noted from the Members’ Update that some further consultation responses had been received from Statutory and Internal Consultees and Officers proposed amendments to conditions 2 and 17.  The Officer advised that condition 7 would also require revision to update the plan numbers detailed to reflect the latest revisions.  This was noted.


Members were reminded that this application had been deferred from the last meeting of the Committee in order for the applicant to consider revising the scale, height and design of the north eastern block of flats proposed within parcel 12.  It was noted that following discussions with the Applicant amendments had been incorporated into the development and were set out in the Officers’ report.


During the Officer’s presentation Members were advised that since publication of the Members’ Update a consultation response had been received from Sports England raising no comments.  Following the presentation, Mr MacArthur from Bellway Homes, Applicant addressed the Committee.


Councillor M F L Durham proposed that the application be approved subject to the conditions set out in the report and Members’ Update.  This proposal was duly seconded.


Members discussed the application and a number commented on the amendments made following the last meeting of this Committee by the applicant.  In response to a question the Officer advised that play areas were included within the strategic landscape and infrastructure areas that are outside the residential parcels which were the subject of separate applications that had been considered by the Committee in the past.  It was confirmed that the proposed amenity space was compliant with the Council’s policies.


The Chairman then put the proposal in the name of Councillor Durham to the Committee and this was duly agreed by assent.


RESOLVED that this application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:

1                 The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of two years from the date of this permission.
