Outline application for development of the site to provide up to 20 dwellings with all matters reserved (except for access).
The Planning Area Team Leader presented the report with updates and highlighted a change to conditions as the condition requiring a pavement linking the site to Water Lane was already secured as a condition on another planning approval (A/114/18/PL) which was already under construction. This was followed by 2 Public Speakers.
Members then took part in a debate on the application where a number of points were raised and responded to by Officers, including the removal of trees from the site, the drainage solutions and whether the Committee should consider them at the Reserved Matters stage, local secondary education capacity, and the level of disruption to the care home. The Group Head of Planning concerned that the application was CIL liable and that was how funds for infrastructure would be secured, rather than through Section 106 contributions. The Planning Area Team Leader noted conditions in the report concerning trees and drainage, and that the separate approval for the care home also had conditions to minimise disturbance. The recommendations were then proposed by Councillor Chace and seconded by Councillor Bower.
To delegate to the Group Head of Planning in consultation with the Chair authority to:
a) Complete the Section 106 Agreement, the terms of which are substantially in accordance with those set out in the report with any minor amendments authorised by the Group Head of Planning; and
b) Upon completion of the Section 106 Agreement, grant outline planning permission subject to conditions.
Should the Section 106 Agreement not be completed within 4 months of the date of the Planning Committee's resolution to grant planning permission, then the application shall be refused for the following reason:
1. In the absence of a signed Section 106 agreement, the development fails to make any affordable housing provision and is thereby contrary to the aims and objectives of the NPPF and policy AH SP2 of the Arun Local Plan.
