·               To amend Condition 2, to read:

 

Design of Residential entrances to Blocks A, B and C

 

Prior to the commencement of the relevant part of the development of any of the Blocks A, B or C, full details of the design of the residential entrances including pedestrian access must be submitted to, and approved by the Local Planning Authority. The entrances shall be fully implemented in accordance with the approved details prior to the occupation of the relevant part of the development, and shall be retained thereafter for the lifetime of the development.

 

Reason: In order that the Local Planning Authority may be satisfied with the external appearance of the entrances to be ‘tenure blind’ and contribute to social inclusion, being compliant with Policies 3.5 and 7.6 of the London Plan (March 2016) and H5 and DH1 of the Royal Greenwich Local Plan: Core Strategy with Detailed Policies (2014).

Minutes:

The Planning Manager (Major Development) gave an illustrative presentation to the report, recommending to the Board to agree the proposal therein.

 

The Board noted the report, and that the proposal was related to an application for reserved matters to develop 220 residential units, with landscaping, amenity space, parking, access, and other associated infrastructure.

 

In response to questions raised, the Planning Manager advised the Board that the proposed central court yard would be accessible to all residents, including occupants of the intermediate and social housing units.  The Board also noted clarification that in addition green planting onto roof areas, trees and shrubs would form part of the landscape design.

 

The agent for the applicant also addressed the meeting, suggesting to the Board to approve the officer’s recommendation in the report.  The agent advised the Board that the applicant had complied with the London design guidelines and relevant Council policies, and that he was willing to clarify issues relating to the application.

 

In response to questions raised, the agent for the applicant confirmed to the Board that there would be ample play areas, and facilities to store building maintenance consumables and equipment.  The communal break-out lobby areas would be adequate.  The sizes of the proposed units were in excess of that required under the current living design standard.  The three-bed family accommodation would have extra storage areas.  Therefore, it was unlikely that the applicant would consider increasing the internal space of the dwelling units.  The Board was advised that there was also no consideration that there would be additional greenery other than that proposed in the drawing plans.

 

In considering submissions made at the meeting, the Board endorsed the officer’s recommendation but suggested that Condition 2 should be revised to ensure consistency across tenures in terms of design of residential entrances across the application site.

 

The Board voted on the proposal, and
