(ii)  Conditions set out in Appendix 3 of the main report and amendments set out in the addendum report.

Minutes:

The Planning Board noted the Officers addendum report and accepted an illustrated presentation from the Planner, who advised that no objections had been received.  She advised that the Conditions which required discharge had been agreed with the applicant; had been reviewed by the appropriate partners and were considered acceptable.

 

The Planner responded to Members questions that the revisions to the application were requested by the applicant and that the building would have the words ‘Work Stack’ on the exterior elevations.

 

The applicant’s agent was in attendance and advised the Members that they were satisfied with the proposal as presented to Members although noted that the applicant may wish to submit further amendments but he was unable to give the details at this time.

 

In response to Members questions the applicants agent advised that the fitting of a gate to restrict access to the site, particularly out of hours, may not be the most appropriate, given the layout of the area. 

 

The Development Control Manager, Major Projects advised that there was a requirement on the applicant to restrict access to the site, out of hours due to the need to ensure a safe environment and reduce crime rates in the area, but the condition had been worded as such to allow the applicant to find a suitable solution with the Metropolitan Police; for instance this could be through the use of bollards should this be found to be acceptable by the consultee.

 

The Chair put the Officers proposal to approve minor material amendment planning permission as se out in the main report and Officers addendum to the vote with 9 Members in favour, 0 Against and 0 Abstentions.

 

Resolved unanimously -
