Sarah Hawkins for Peel and Emma Geater for Crest Nicholson addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

A Member expressed concern at the low level of affordable housing and he asked if consideration had been given to using some of the funding for towpath enhancement to provide more affordable housing. He was advised that the towpath improvements were part of the open space offer from the development and were considered as such by the Inspector on the original application. Not securing the funds for the towpath would prevent the scheme from delivering the enhancement.

 

Another Member called for safety railings along the towpath which was used by many cyclists. He was advised that this was outside of the application site and not been considered necessary as a requirement of the outline planning permission.

 

The Chair moved and the Vice-Chair seconded that the Planning Technical Manager be authorised to grant planning permission subject to terms detailed in the late material.

 

RESOLVED that the Planning Technical Manager be authorised to grant planning permission subject to the satisfactory completion of a legal agreement to secure the following heads of terms, and the addition/variation of conditions as appropriate.

Towpath

-    Payable upon commencement of development

 

Affordable Housing

-       1.2% (with no public subsidy) or up to 3.9% (with public subsidy) affordable housing (5 / 16 units) within the Monk Meadow phase (requiring a variation of Condition 73 and a legal agreement clause to set out the public subsidy testing process)

-       Mix of affordable housing provision being all affordable rent (this would be agreed via a further separate submission under Condition 73)

-       Delivery of affordable housing prior to 50% open market units (again this would be agreed via a further separate submission)

A Member expressed concerns that the flats adjacent to the petrol filling station and car wash were to be above the garages and would be open to disturbance.
