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.

No declarations of interest were made.

RESOLVED TO REVISE: Condition 32 and add an additional informative:

 

32. Ecological Management Plan (EMP)

No development shall commence until a site-specific Ecological Management Plan (EMP) has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The EMP should detail habitat creation, additional features, and ongoing management for the site. The EMP should contain the following:

 

• Planting lists for all outdoor spaces

• Detailed irrigation methods for all outdoor planting

• Location, aspect, and specification of bat/bird/insect boxes

• Maintenance plan for all planting and additional habitat features

• Details of the pollinators

 

The development shall be carried out in accordance with the approved EMP.

Reason: In order to comply with Policy CE4 of the Local Plan and policies G5 and G6 of the London Plan which require developments to takes opportunities to enhance and attract biodiversity. It is necessary for the condition to be on the basis that “No development shall commence until” as compliance with the requirements of the condition at a later time would result in unacceptable harm contrary to the policies of the Development Plan.

 

Additional informative:

 

5. In accordance with Condition 18 (Trees and Landscaping – Details Required), the submitted scheme of landscaping should include the planting of new tree(s) within the application site and the adjoining streets. If there are no opportunities for trees to be planted, then full justification should be provided to demonstrate why this is not feasible.

 

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: to grant Planning Permission on the satisfactory completion of an agreement under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) based on the Heads of Terms identified in Section 8 of the officer report and with conditions which shall not materially depart from those listed in Section 10 of the officer report, with authority granted to the Director of Planning and Place to  refuse to grant planning permission if an undertaking or agreement to secure the matters in Section 8 of the Officer report has not been satisfactorily completed by 26 July 2024 for the reason that the proposed development would not be accompanied by associated necessary infrastructure improvements.
