Proposed development

Details pursuant to outline permission granted under WA/2016/2207 for 67 dwellings together with associated car parking, landscaping and open space pursuant to conditions 1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 22, 26, 40 and 41 (as amended by plans and documents received 06/08/2018, 10/09/2018 and 30/10/2018). A statement of conformity to the original Environmental Statement has been provided with this application.

 

With reference to the report circulated with the agenda, Officers presented a summary of the planning context for making a decision on the application, and then outlined the proposed development including site plans and the layout. Officers outlined the determining issues and those matters of a more subjective nature.

 

The Committee was advised that since the publication of the agenda, officers had received further information from the Chairman, Mr Bamford, of Knowle Park Trust. This letter set out that it was to provide assurances in respect of the delivery of the public parkland.

 

Officers reminded the Committee that the application was originally brought before it on 12 November 2018. At that meeting it was agreed that the item be deferred to seek further information on the phasing elements of the outline permission and the delivery of the Knowle Park Trust units. Since that meeting, the applicants had submitted extra information to address these issues specifically the intended build programme, affordable home provision, parkland management, boundary treatment at the site entrance and information on A2Dominion.

 

Officers considered that the information provided in terms of how many units would be delivered as part of future Phases 2 and 3, and specifically how many of those would be affordable units, was sufficient in demonstrating that the overall affordable housing provision requirement of 35% as set out in S106 Agreement could be satisfactorily achieved across the site. Officers also confirmed that a reserved matters application for the Public Park Phase had been submitted to the Council for consideration and this was currently undergoing validation checks.

 

Public speaking

In accordance with the Council’s arrangements for public participation at meetings, the following made representations in respect of the application, which were duly considered:

 

Judith Ashton - Supporter

 

Debate

 

The Committee considered the application and thanked the applicants for the additional information that had been provided since the last meeting.

 

Councillor Liz Townsend raised and issue of concern with the footpath 393 which on the southern boundary and its relationship with the emergency access road, she asked for a condition to be placed on the notice that this be protected and maintained. Officers advised that there was a very slight overlap but the Rights of Way officer had not objected to the application. It was also an emergency access so would only be used on an exceptional basis. Officers did not feel that they could place an additional condition unless they could identify harm. It was a matter for Surrey County Council and the Landlord to discuss, however and additional informative would be added to the decision regarding this issue.
