The officers gave a presentation and drew the meeting’s attention to the additional information contained in the addendum and the fact that the recommendation was that there be a Section 106 agreement.
There were no objectors present at the meeting.
The Committee was addressed by two residents of the Estate who explained that the proposals were supported by the residents who wanted the works to start as soon as possible.
Members expressed concerns at the reasons for Condition 11 and asked that an additional reason regarding the safeguarding of residential amenity also be inserted and that there be an additional condition on boundary treatments. Members also felt that the quality of the scheme was dependent on ongoing maintenance of the landscaping.
Assurances were given that the fence outside the Tenants Hall would not be removed when that facility was refurbished.
MOVED by Councillor Diana Morris and SECONDED by Councillor Brian Palmer and it was:
1) That planning permission be granted subject to a Section 106 agreement, the conditions set out in the report as amended by the addendum, and the following amendments:
· The reason for condition 11 to be amended to make reference to need to safeguard residential amenity during the course of construction.
· Add extra conditions about landscape maintenance and details of boundary treatments.
