DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST

Any member of the Council who has a disclosable pecuniary interest in a matter to be considered at the meeting is reminded to disclose the interest to the meeting and to leave the Chamber while any discussion or vote on the matter takes place.

 

Members are also reminded that if they have any other significant interest in a matter to be considered at the meeting, which they feel should be declared in the public interest, such interests should be declared to the meeting. In such circumstances Members should consider whether their continued participation, in the matter relating to the interest, would be reasonable in the circumstances, particularly if the interest may give rise to a perception of a conflict of interests, or whether they should leave the Chamber while any discussion or vote on the matter takes place.

 

OtherDeclarations

 

Any Member of the Committee who does not have a disclosable pecuniary or other significant interest in a planning application to be considered at the meeting but who has been involved in organising support for or objections to such a planning application, submitted representations or expressed support for or opposition to the application (either publicly or in private with the applicant or objectors) should declare this at the meeting. At the point during the meeting when that planning application is to be considered, the Member should stop participating (but not necessarily leave the meeting) until the Committee has made its decision unless the Member believes that he or she is able to consider and that he or she would be seen to consider the application with an open mind, fairly and on its merits.

 

Minutes:

Cllr Bennett made a declaration in relation to N60 - PP/23/07940 and N61 – PP/24/01697 - 42-52 Earl's Court Road, LONDON, W8 6FT as he and Cllr Mackover had visited the objector’s property with planning officers.

 

Cllr Bennett also declared that one of the objectors was known to himself and other members of the committee (Cllrs Areti, Idris and Mackover) but did not discuss the application and Cllrs Bennett, Areti, Idris and Mackover would sit on the Committee with an open mind.

  1. The openable gate on the rear boundary, as a result of its location and design, would result in an increased security risk to those living in residential properties in Pembroke Place, to the rear of the site. As such, the development fails to comply with policy CL2 of the 2019 Local Plan.

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: to NOT ADOPT the recommendation to grant planning permission with the conditions listed in Section 8 of the officer report.

 

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY TO REFUSE PLANNING PERMSSION as proposed by Cllr Bennett and seconded by Cllr Idrisfor the following reason:  

 

  1. By reason of the additional height and massing, the proposed development would lead to a harmful sense of enclosure and loss of outlook to the residential properties forming Pembroke Place. As such, the development would fail to maintain an acceptable relationship with these properties and would fail to comply with policy CL5 of the Local Plan.

 

  1. The proposed materials would fail to respond to the character and appearance of the surrounding townscape and would appear at odds with the existing materials found on the building. This would appear visually intrusive when viewed from the surrounding townscape, including the properties forming Pembroke Place. As such, the development would fail to be the highest architectural and urban design quality and would fail to comply with policies CL1, CL2, CL6, and CL8 of the 2019 Local Plan.
