Application No. 19/00337/FULPP - Meudon House, Meudon Avenue, Farnborough

Minutes:

The Committee considered the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing’s Report No. PLN1948 (as amended at the meeting) regarding the demolition of existing structures and the erection of 197 dwellings, comprising 86 one-bedroom flats, 77 two-bedroom flats and 34 three-bedroom houses, with associated access, parking and landscape arrangements.

 

The Committee was reminded that it had approved a previous application for the scheme in November 2018 and noted that the amended application consisted of:

 

·         A reduction in the overall number of units by seven dwellings;

·         A reduction in the overall height of the apartment block by one storey;

·         Reconfiguration of the internal layouts of both the apartments and houses;

·         Changes in the elevation treatments of both the apartments and houses.

 

RESOLVED: That:

 

(i)

subject to the completion of an appropriate Section 106 planning obligation by 29th November, 2019 in respect of Strategic Access Management and Monitoring Measures (SAMM), open space contributions, affordable housing review mechanism and highway matters, including transport contributions and travel plan and monitoring fees, and ensuring the transfer of existing SANG allocation from the previously approved scheme to the new proposal prior to implementation as set out in the Report (as amended at the meeting) and the revised conditions and informatives set out in the Report (as amended at the meeting), the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing, in consultation with the Chairman, be authorised to grant planning permission; and

 

 

(ii)

in the event of failure to complete a satisfactory Section 106 planning obligation by 29th November, 2019, the Head of Economy, Planning and Strategic Housing, in consultation with the Chairman, be authorised to refuse planning permission on the grounds that the proposal fails to make appropriate provision for affordable housing and open space, nor  mitigate its impact on the highway and the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area, contrary to the relevant policies of the Council’s Development Plan and associated supplementary planning guidance.
