The Committee




That the Planning Committee recommend that the application be granted subject to a s106 Agreement. As the s106 Agreement has not been completed the Planning Committee delegate the decision to the Group Head of Planning (in consultation with the Chair) to make on completion of a s106 Agreement. The Group Head of Planning has authority to make minor amendments to the s106 Agreement if required. Should the s106 Agreement not be completed within 4 months of the date of this resolution, the application shall be refused for the following reasons:


1.    In the absence of a signed s106 Agreement, the development makes no provision for the contributions to off-site public open space, and is thereby contrary to the aims and objectives of the NPPF, Arun Local Plan policies INF SP1, HWB SP1 and OSR DM1 and the Council’s supplementary planning document “Open Space, Playing Pitches, Indoor and Built Sports Facilities (January 2020)”


2.    In the absence of a signed s106 Agreement, the application fails to make a financial contribution towards the cost of providing accessible natural open green spaces to mitigate the harm to the Pagham Harbour Special Protection Area and the proposal is therefore not in accordance with Arun Local Plan policies ENV DM1 and ENV DM2.
