Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Panel considered the report of the Service Lead, Planning, Infrastructure and Development recommending delegated authority be granted in respect of an application for a proposed development at the above address.

 

Erection of a 3-storey building including basement for use as fast food restaurant with drive thru, landscaping, parking, cycle storage and associated works, following demolition of existing building.

 

Duncan Gibbs, Dr Paul Spencer (local residents/ objecting) Councillors Houghton and Lewzey (Peartree ward councillors objecting) and Councillors Payne and Hammond (Woolston ward Councillors) were present and with the consent of the Chair, addressed the meeting.

 

The Panel considered the recommendation to delegate authority to the Service Lead: Planning, Infrastructure and Development to grant planning permission. Concern was raised in regard a number to anti-social behaviour, litter and potential for increased traffic congestion and air pollution. Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was lost.

 

A further motion to refuse to the application for the reasons set out below was then proposed by Councillor Denness and seconded by Councillor Hecks.

 

RESOLVED to refuse planning permission for the reasons set out below:

 

Reasons for Refusal

 

1.  Crime, Safety and Security

 

The proposed restaurant/drive thru by reason of its location, within a mixed-use area in close proximity to residential neighbours, and the proposed late night/early morning use will lead to noise, disturbance, anti-social behaviour and other associated crime (public order incidents and assaults) stemming from poor design in terms securing boundary treatment and play space during operational hours as evidenced by Hampshire Constabulary’s formal objection to the planning application. Insufficient information has been submitted as part of the application to demonstrate that on-site management will be able to prevent the aforementioned issues and the Council does not consider that the conditions suggested by Hampshire Constabulary will sufficiently mitigate against the harm caused in this instance. As such the proposal has been assessed as contrary to 'saved' policies SDP1(i), SDP10 and REI7 (i), (ii) and (iv) from the Amended Local Plan Review (2015) and policy CS13(10) of the adopted LDF Amended Core Strategy (2015) as supported by paragraph 69 the National Planning Policy Framework (2012).

 

2.  Overdevelopment of the site and Impact on Character

 

Due to the proposed building’s footprint, layout and associated operational activity the application has been assessed as an overdevelopment of the site that would result in the loss of the existing mature boundary trees on site without adequate replacement demonstrated thereby significantly harming the character of the area, which is currently characterised by these mature trees. Therefore the scheme is deemed contrary to 'saved' policies SDP1(i), SDP7 and SDP12 of the Amended Local Plan Review (2015) and policies CS13 and CS22 of the adopted LDF Amended Core Strategy (2015).

 

3.  Air Quality

 

The applicant has failed to demonstrate that the increase in trips to and from the site will not contribute further to air quality problems within the vicinity of the site due to the increase in congestion that will occur, in  ...  view the full minutes text for item 30.
