Minutes:

The Planning Committee received an illustrative in depth presentation on the application from the Planning Officer who advised a correction was required to paragraph 5.4 of the report that the comments credited as received from the Greenwich Society should read from the Greenwich Conservation Group.

 

In response to Members questions the Planning Officer advised that theLondon Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) request for the installation of a sprinkler system was listed as an Informative as this was a matter better addressed through other legislation.   The Area Planning Manager (West) added that this was an area covered under the Building Regulations.

 

He confirmed that the existing rear extension, which was currently used as a function room was to become a gym for the residents of the proposed flats, and the main pub area was to retained as a working pub.

 

In respect of the car parking the Area Planning Manager (West) confirmed that this was a car free proposal and the residents would not be entitled to apply for parking permits for the Councils controlled CPZ.  It would be for the relevant parking management company for the adjacent estate to manage enforcement in their areas.

 

The Planning Officer advised that sound proofing would be installed between the gym and residential area and the mechanical ventilation system was a precautionary measure to protect residents in respect of any future use of the commercial unit.  The Area Planning Manager (West) added that Environmental Health had agreed the application subject to the inclusion of Conditions 12 and 15, as set out on the Appendices.

 

The applicant addressed the Planning Committee advising that due to the increase in number of hotels in the area their hotel occupancy rate had drastically reduced.  The proposal would allow the pub to be sustained, the location was well suited for flats being close to a mainline train station.

 

He confirmed to the Planning Committee that he would be fitting a sprinkler system, in the interest of all occupants.

 

In determining the application Members felt the at the proposal was an innovative scheme in keeping with the character of an attractive building.  It would support a local business and retain a valuable public house.

 

The matter was put to the vote and it was;
