The Committee was reminded that permission had been refused at the previous meeting of the Committee for Reasons relating to:

2.    failure to secure Section 106 contributions towards Special Protection Area Mitigation and Avoidance;

3.    failure to secure Section 106 contributions towards public open space; and

4.    failure to secure Section 106 contributions towards transport provision.

 

The applicants had approached the Solicitor to the Council to request that work could be undertaken with the Council to produce a draft Section 106 Agreement seeking to address Reasons for Refusal Nos. 2, 3 and 4.  Authority was therefore being sought from the Development Management Committee for the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing, in consultation with the Solicitor to the Council, to prepare the necessary draft Section 106 Agreement to address these matters.

 

The Committee was assured that this work would not affect the Council’s position in relation to Reason for Refusal No. 1 but would remove the need for the Council to defend Reasons for Refusal Nos. 2, 3 and 4 with the appeal proceedings, were an appeal to be lodged formally.

 

RESOLVED: That the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing, in consultation with the Solicitor to the Council, be authorised to complete a legal agreement to address the impacts of the development as identified in Reasons for Refusal Nos. 2, 3 and 4 as set out in detail in the Minutes of the meeting of the Development Management Committee held on 7th November, 2018.
