Agenda item

(21/02760/FULL1) - National Westminster Bank Sports Ground, Copers Cope Road, Beckenham, BR3 1NZ




The application was for the construction of an open-air canopy covering for a spectator seating stand. The recommendation was for approval. It was noted that the application was part of the Crystal Palace Training Ground. The entrance site was on Metropolitan Open Land. The development was not ideal for MOL, but it was considered that the benefits of the application outweighed this. The officers had recommended that the application be approved.


Oral representations in support and objection to the application were heard at the meeting.


Ward Cllr Will Connolly said that the application should be deferred to allow more time for consultation between the football club and local residents.


Councillor Alexa Michael said that she had visited the site and felt that there was nothing unacceptable about the application. She moved that the application be approved and this was seconded by Cllr Charles Joel. 


Members, having considered the report, objections and representations, RESOLVED THAT PERMISSION BE GRANTED for the reasons and subject to the conditions set out in the report of the Assistant Director, Planning.
