    Case No. 20/01822/EIAFUL, (agenda item 2, page 17 of the agenda pack, page 11 of the first addendum and page 9 of the second addendum).


    The Planning Officer introduced the key aspects of the application and informed Members of the following points:


    -       The addenda included further objections to the proposal, updated wording of conditions, and information on other examples of how compensatory waste provision had been secured. Officers recommended to the Committee by way of a verbal addendum that the time period for commencement of the development in Condition 1 should be extended from 3 to 4 years.  The rationale for this proposed amendment was to allow time for compensatory waste provision to be secured as required under the proposed Grampian condition (Condition 4).

    -       The site was to be redeveloped to provide 218 residential units, with 35% of which were to be offered as affordable. Provision would be made for 386 cycles in dedicated storage areas.

    -       The site was a safeguarded waste site and a non-designated industrial site.

    -       It was noted that the site was located near a conservation area. Officers had concluded that the proposal would not impact on any heritage assets. 

    -       The application was submitted by the same applicant as the Windsor Grove application, which was previously reported to Committee at the 13 July and 27 July meetings.

    -       Officers advised that the outcome of this application would not affect the Council’s position where the Windsor Grove decision to be appealed. If consent for the application was granted subject to the restrictions formed by the proposed Grampian condition and the recommended s106 planning obligations, then the proposal would comply with the requirements of policy SI 9 of the London Plan and policy EN7 of the Lambeth Local Plan (2015) and also the draft revised Lambeth Local Plan.

    -       Officers advised the Grampian condition would prevent commencement on the Shakespeare Road site until a scheme had been approved in writing by the Council that secured to its satisfaction, compensatory waste capacity within the borough with a minimum annual throughput of 21,151 Tonnes Per Annum.

    -       The application departed from Policy E7 Part C of the London Plan and Officers were satisfied that the proposal departure was outweighed by material considerations, namely the benefits of the scheme from relocating the waste facility to a more appropriate location, provision of new housing, and environmental improvements.

    -       The Council’s viability consultant confirmed that there would be a deficit of minus £317 against the benchmark land value, however the proposal would provide 35% affordable housing, which was considered to be the maximum reasonable amount of affordable housing for the proposed development.

    -       The proposal would have an impact on the daylight and sunlight received by some of the surrounding properties according to the environmental impact assessment. This was largely a result of the development of a low-rise site and the retained levels were largely considered to be within the context for this location.
