Councillor Saunders proposed the motion for Officer recommendation to DELEGATE to the Head of Planning to:

 

1.    To grant planning permission on the satisfactory completion of a S106 Agreement that incorporates the Heads of Terms identified in Sections 7 of this report and with the conditions listed in Section 11, following referral to the Department for Communities and Local Government and there being no intervention by the Secretary of State in the decision making process.

2.    To refuse planning permission if a S106 Agreement to secure the Heads of Terms identified in Section 7 of this report has not been satisfactorily completed by 30th April 2019 (or another date as agreed with the Head of Planning) for the reason that the proposed development would not be accompanied by associated infrastructure improvements, that it would not secure sustainable travel, that it would not secure the long term management and maintenance of the Registered Park and Garden nor secure public access into it and to Northcote House, that it would not secure future maintenance/management of SANG and that it would not provide for affordable housing.

 

This was seconded by Councillor Wilson.

 

A named vote was carried out. Councillors Alexander, Bateson, Burbage, Hilton, Hunt, Kellaway, Saunders, Walters and Wilson voted for officers recommendation. Councillors Beer, Evans, Sharpe and Stretton voted against officers recommendation.

 

The Panel agreed to DEFER and DELEGATE to the Head of Planning as per the Officers recommendation.

 

(The Panel were addressed by Brendan Fitzmorris, Objector, Julia Chester, SPAE, Councilllor’s Michael Burn and Peter Deason, Parish Councillors and Andrew Saunders Davies, Berkeley Homes).
