The presenting officer reported that the Public Art clause in the proposed S106 agreement needed to be removed as the new commercial floor space was below the threshold targets with planning obligations. It was noted that reference to building recording as mitigation within the Reason for granting permission and at paragraphs 5.8 and 7.1 should be amended and changed to confirm that building recording is record evidence of the past but is not a determining factor in the loss of this non-designated heritage asset. Additionally the presenting officer noted that the reason for granting permission also needed to be adjusted to reflect the low degree of significance attached to the building in heritage terms, as set out below.
The Panel then considered the recommendation to delegate authority to the Head of Planning and Economic Development to grant planning permission. Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was carried.
