James Cross - Applicant
Approval of reserved matters following BN/149/22/PL for 200 dwellings respect of appearance, landscaping, layout and scale. This application may affect the setting of listed buildings, may affect the Church Lane, Barnham Conservation Area & affects a Public Right of Way.
The Strategic Development Team Leader explained that the applicant had submitted on 27 June 2023, the day before the meeting, amended plans to address the affordable housing concerns raised within the report and that these amendments resulted in a large number of plans being submitted. He clarified that Officers did not seek these amendments because the issue of affordable housing and its location was not an issue for the reserved matters submission and would have been agreed through the discharge of the planning obligation. Given the lateness of their submission, Officers had not yet been able to undertake a detailed review of these amendments or undertake any necessary consultation. Because of this situation, the Officer report update proposed an amended recommendation to defer to allow for these plans to be appropriately assessed and any consultation carried out. It was confirmed that further plans had been received on the day of the Committee. A detailed update report would be prepared for the next available Planning Committee. The recommendation to defer was then proposed by Councillor Bower and seconded by Councillor Patel.
That the application be DEFERRED to defer to allow for the amended plans to be appropriately assessed and any consultation carried out.
