Proposal:      Demolition of existing buildings and redevelopment of site comprising erection of distribution warehouse (class B8) with ancillary offices and related facilities, vehicle storage deck, new access, landscaping and associated infrastructure.

 

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation from the Head of Planning to grant permission.

 

The Committee received supplementary information, circulated prior to the

meeting which:

 

(1)        included written deputations received from Mr Comlay, Mr Golding, Ms Saunders, Mr and Mrs Barlow and on behalf of the applicants;

 

(2)        Detailed an update to the representations received and updates including to the recommended conditions;

 

(3)        Provided information requested by the Site Viewing Working Party;

 

(4)        Provided the highway response to Mr Comlay’s deputation; and

 

(5)        Summarised a Highway Response Note received since the agenda was published.

 

In view of the public interest shown in this application, the Chairman, in accordance with the Committee’s adopted deputation procedure, agreed to an extension of the time allowed for deputations as follows:

 

          3 minutes for each objector

          9 minutes for those speaking in support

 

The Committee was addressed by the following deputees who in addition to their written deputations, had requested to address the Committee in person:

 

a)         Ms Saunders, who read out the written deputation circulated to members of the Committee prior to the meeting.

 

            In response to a question from a member of the Committee, Ms Saunders advised that although she had no evidence to support her concerns relating to traffic movements, it was reasonable to suggest that the type of operation proposed would generate more traffic than that generated by the previous occupier

 

b)         Ms Brooks, who read out the written deputation attached as an appendix to these minutes.

 

            In response to a question from a member of the Committee, Ms Brooks advised that the houses in Nutwick Road were on the same level as the application site; the railway line between the application site and Nutwick Road was on a higher elevation.

 

c)         Mr Comlay, who highlighted the following issues raised in his written deputation:

 

            i)          there had never been, to his knowledge, any 7 day, 3 hour shift round the clock business on the application site;

           

            ii)         the failure to advise on who the intended occupier would be was arguably is an error in the information submitted to the Committee;

 

            iii)         omissions and errors in the traffic data submitted to support the application;

 

            iv)        the number of proposed secure jobs was insufficient for such a prime site;

 

            v)         employment details that had not been supplied; and

 

            vi)        the impact of the traffic likely to be generated by the proposal

 

            In response to a question from a member of the Committee, Mr Comlay advised that traffic in New Lane had never been an issue. His concern was with the impact of introducing a traffic generating business in the middle of a town already heavily constrained by traffic.

 

            In summing up his deputation, Mr Comlay advised that, in  ...  view the full minutes text for item 42.
