RESOLVED that the Minutes of the meeting held on 15 November 2018 be confirmed and signed as a correct record.

 

20.1

STATEMENT FROM THE DEVELOPMENT CONTROL MANAGER

Minutes:

“As of yesterday evening 16th January, the London Borough of Bromley adopted its new Bromley Local Plan (BLP). This means that the Local Plan now carries full weight as part of Bromley’s Development Plan, along with the adopted London Plan and parts of the Bromley Town Centre Area Action Plan (some policies in the latter are replaced in Local Plan).

 

Members will need to therefore ignore references to Unitary Development Plan (UDP) policies in the agenda this evening, as the UDP is no longer a development plan document, and give full weight to the Local Plan policies set out in each report. Although these are cited as draft policies, the Policy numbers and content is the same as when the reports were published.

 

We would also ask that Members agree to allow Officers delegated authority to update the Policy references in conditions and reasons for refusal prior to issuing any decisions from tonight’s meeting to ensure that they are up to date.”

 

MEMBERS AUTHORISED OFFICERS TO UPDATE THE POLICY REFERENCES UNDER THE CHIEF PLANNER’S DELEGATED AUTHORITY.

Members having considered the report and representations, RESOLVED that PERMISSION be GRANTED AGAINST OFFICERS’ RECOMMENDATIONS subject to the following conditions and informatives:-

1. The development to which this permission relates must be begun not later than the expiration of 3 years, beginning with the date of this decision notice.

REASON: Section 91, Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

2. The development hereby permitted shall not be carried out otherwise than in complete accordance with the plans approved under this planning permission unless previously agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority. 

REASON: In the interest of the visual and residential amenities of the area and in order to comply with Policy 37 of the Bromley Local Plan.

3.

REASON: To avoid development without adequate parking or garage provision, which is likely to lead to parking inconvenient to other road users and would be detrimental to amenities and prejudicial to road safety and in order to comply with Policy 30 of the Bromley Local Plan.

Decision:

DEFERRED

Minutes:

Description of application – Demolition of Nos. 19 & 21 Anerley Road and construction of a new build replacement 4 Storey building with basement to create 9 units (4 x 1-bed, 4 x 2- bed and 1 x 3 bed) with associated refuse and cycle stores.

 

The Chairman had visited the site and was concerned that no provision for off street parking or amenity space had been proposed for the 9 unit development, and it did not conform to Policy 8 of the new Bromley Local Plan.

 

Councillor Katy Boughey was mindful that a previous permission (17/04076/FULL1) had been granted and she preferred the proposed mix of units.

 

Councillors Charles Joel and Kira Gabbert disliked the modern design that would not compliment Anerley Road and suggested reconsideration of the elevational treatment.

 

Members having considered the report and objections, RESOLVED that THE APPLICATION BE DEFERRED, without prejudice to any future consideration, to address the lack of car parking, lack of amenity space, lack of side space and to reconsider the design and elevational treatment.
