Oral representations from visiting Ward Member Councillor Christine Harris in objection to the application were received at the meeting.

 

Comments received from Environmental Health had raised no objections but the addition of two informatives in regard to sanitary provision and building regulations were requested.

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION BE GRANTED as recommended, subject to the conditions set out in the report of the Assistant Director, Planning and Building Control with the addition of two informatives to read:-

 

1.  Given the extent of the development works, the applicant is advised to review and revise the amount of sanitary accommodation provided at the premises to cater for the increase in maximum occupancy in line with the requirements of BS 6465 Part 1 2006 (+A1 2009) (or other equivalent guidance).

 

2.  The applicant is advised of the need to ensure that the construction and fit out of the new rear preparation and store area satisfies both Building Regulation and food law requirements, as experience has shown that compliance with Building Regulations does not always result in food law compliance.

Decision:

DEFERRED

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of existing buildings at Nos. 50-54 Station Road and erection of three storey building comprising commercial/office space at ground floor level and 2 two bedroom and 4 one bedroom apartments at first and second floor levels with associated secure bin and cycle storage for commercial and residential use and landscaped amenity space.

 

Oral representations from the applicant’s agent  in support of the application were received at the meeting. 

 

In response to a question from Councillor Fawthrop, the agent confirmed that the applicant would have no objection to a condition being added requiring payment (via a S106 Agreement) for the installation and set-up of a CCTV system to enable improved parking enforcement.

 

Oral representations from visiting Ward Member Councillor William Huntington-Thresher were received at the meeting.

 

The Head of Development Management reported that further documents in objection to the application had been received and circulated to Members.  He also advised that as the site was located in a road owned by Network Rail, clarity would need to be sought on the issue of CCTV as parking enforcement was a private matter.

 

Members having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED that the application BE DEFERRED without prejudice to any future consideration to enable possible measures to help with the deterrence and enforcement of unauthorised parking in Station Road to be explored.  If a satisfactory solution can be achieved then Officers have Delegated Authority to issue the decision subject to this additional requirement.

 

The following conditions in the report were amended:-

 

‘8.  Soft and hard landscaping and boundary enclosures including measures to protect the privacy of No. 46 Station Road.

 

11.  Details of cycle parking for both the commercial and residential elements of the scheme.’
