    Minutes:

    Case No. 21/01127/FUL, (agenda item 3, page 23 of the agenda pack, page 9 of the first addendum and page 11 of the second addendum).

     

    The Planning Officer notified the committee that it had come to light that notice had not been served on all owners of the land to which the application related, which was a significant procedural issue. The serving of notice on all owners of the land was a legislative requirement and as such the application could not be determined. The officer recommendation was to defer the consideration of this item and bring it back to a later committee meeting when the correct notice had been served.

     

    The Chair proposed that the item be deferred to a future meeting.

     

    21/01127/FUL

    It was MOVED by Councillor J Simpson, SECONDED by Councillor O’Hara

     

    And

     

    RESOLVED, unanimously:

     

    To defer consideration of the application.

    The Planning Officer advised that in the second addendum, conditions relating to the closing time for the stage and bars had been amended to 23:00 on all days except during the 15 to 17 July, where it would be 01:00. The council’s noise specialist had advised that the change would not result in an unacceptable amenity impact and was satisfied that there would be no audible noise between 23:00 and 10:00 the next morning. The Planning Officer stated that:

    ·             From previous years, the site layout was largely unchanged, and the duration of the event was in line with previous years, apart from 2020 which had been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

    ·             There would be less than substantial harm to the setting of the Westminster World Heritage Site.

    ·             There would be a decrease in area from the application that came to Committee in 2021, due to the change in policy. Officers stated that it was important to protect local views, and this had been acknowledged in the application.

    ·             If full planning permission was granted, it needed to be in line with the recommended amendments to the conditions. 

     

    The Chair then moved to a vote.

    Minutes:

    Case No. 22/00345/FUL, (agenda item 5, page 139 of the agenda pack)

     

    The Planning Officer introduced the report and noted that the application was for the erection of the ground floor rear extension and the installation of one new window. The following was stated by the Planning Officer:

     

    ·         There were no heritage considerations as the site was not a listed building and was not in a conservation area.

    ·         The extension was of an appropriate scale, visually subordinate to the host building and the material palette of dark grey bricks and a dark grey window was acceptable.

    ·         A green roof was proposed and would provide biodiversity improvements on the site.

    ·         The proposal would be taller than the neighbouring building’s extension and would be larger in terms of its’ depth.

    ·         The neighbouring building would retain appropriate levels of daylight, sunlight, privacy and there would be no undue sense of enclosure.

     

    The Chair then moved to a vote.
