Urgent Action - Meudon House, Meudon Avenue, Farnborough pdf icon PDF 64 KB

To receive the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1911 (copy attached) on the further extension of time in respect of Meudon House, Meudon Avenue, Farnborough.

 

Minutes:

The Committee received the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1911, regarding an urgent decision, made in consultation with the Chairman, to extend the deadline for the completion of the Section 106 Planning Obligation in respect of the redevelopment of the above site comprising the demolition of existing structures and the erection of 205 dwellings comprising 93 one-bedroom flats; 80 two-bedroom flats and 32 three-bedroom townhouses with associated access, parking and landscape arrangements, in accordance with the application under the above reference.

 

Members were reminded that the Committee had resolved to grant planning permission on 7th November, 2018 for the above redevelopment, subject to the completion of a satisfactory Planning Obligation under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 by 19th December, 2018.  At its meeting on 16th January, 2019, the Committee had noted an urgent decision that had been made to agree an extension of this deadline to 31st January, 2019, at the request of the applicant.

 

It was reported that, whilst good progress had been made on the legal agreement, it had become evident that it would not be possible to have all outstanding matters completed by 31st January and the applicants had requested a further extension of the deadline to 1st March, 2019.

 

The further extension of time for completion of the agreement had been agreed as an urgent action by the Chairman, in consultation with the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing, on 30th January, 2019.

 

RESOLVED: That the report be noted.

Variation of legal agreement - 42-46 Birchett Road, Aldershot pdf icon PDF 78 KB

To receive the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1910 (copy attached) which reports on the variation of a legal agreement in respect of the residential redevelopment at 42-46 Birchett Road, Aldershot.

Minutes:

The Committee considered the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1910, which sought authority to vary the terms of the legal agreement relating to affordable housing at Nos. 42 – 46 Birchett Road, Aldershot.  Members were reminded that the original planning permission had been granted for the erection of 58 flats.  This permission had been subject to a legal agreement which had secured six affordable housing units.  Members were informed that the development was nearing completion and that the developer was in the process of selling to a third party.  The prospective new owner now intended to facilitate the occupation of the entire development as affordable housing, consisting of eight shared ownership and 50 social rental units.  Despite this, it was still necessary for the permission to identify the six required affordable units and the prospective purchaser had asked that these should be different to those currently identified in the legal agreement.  This change would require the Council’s Corporate Manager – Legal Services to vary the Section 106 Planning Obligation accordingly.

 

RESOLVED: That the request to vary the existing Section 106 Planning Obligation with a deed of variation, as set out in the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1910, be agreed, with detailed wording to be agreed with the Corporate Manager – Legal Services.
