Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer presented the report which detailed an application for the proposed demolition of existing buildings and redevelopment of the site for student accommodation comprising 115 studio units, one warden unit, ancillary student communal areas and serving facilities, cycle/bin storage, soft/hard landscaping and access at 12 – 16 Quay Street.

 

He referred to the late material which contained a petition from seven residents of Hyett House, an amended condition 30 and an additional condition 34.

 

Barry Leach, a local resident, addressed the Committee with some concerns regarding the application. 

 

He expressed concern at air pollution during demolition and construction due to the proximity of residential property and he requested that materials and machinery leaving the site did not use Lower Quay Street.

 

Paul Doran-Jones addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

The Vice-Chair called for the implementation of the highest standards to control dust pollution and the Chair called for a traffic management scheme to prevent Lower Quay Street being used as a ‘rat-run’ by site traffic. The Principal Planning Officer advised that condition 10 could be amended to achieve a satisfactory traffic management plan.

 

A Member expressed concern that the City may have a surplus of student accommodation as the University had announced job losses. She was advised that the situation would be subject to market forces and the proposal could lend itself residential accommodation which would, if required, be subject to a further application.

 

Another Member was advised that there was a Listed Building Consent application to secure and weatherproof the listed building at 109, Westgate Street. There was no scheme had been submitted to bring the building back into use at present but it was understood that was the intention of the developers.

 

A Member noted that this part of the City was of great importance in the Dark Ages and hoped that the site workers would be made aware of the significance of what could be there.

 

Several Members praised the design of the proposals which they thought would be a great improvement on the present dull buildings.

 

The Chair moved and the Vice-Chair seconded that planning permission be granted subject to the conditions in the report as amended and additional condition 34.
