The Panel considered the report of the Head of Planning and Economic Development recommending that conditional planning permission be granted in respect of an application for a proposed development at the above address.
Change of use to Sui Generis (Drinking establishment). Erection of decking and balustrading to the front and lean to side extension (Retrospective)
Greg Clerk (local residents objecting), Attal Mihanpoor (applicant) and Councillor Shields (ward councillors/objecting) were present and with the consent of the Chair, addressed the meeting. In addition, the Panel acknowledged the submission of Statements from both Martyn Biffin and Cevin Vibert and noted that this had been posted online.
The presenting officer reported further consultation responses from Hampshire Constabulary, City Council Licensing and Environmental Health departments had been received and that as a result a further condition: to remove the picnic tables located on the area of land on the applicant’s land and the Lumsden Road pavement would be required as set out below.
The Panel expressed concern over the potential of outdoor noise and queried whether the restriction on outdoor noise sources included the lean-to extension. Officers confirmed that it did, however for completeness Condition 5 has been updated as below
In addition, the Panel discussed the need for the property to have a boundary treatment condition that would restrict access to the bar from Lumsden Avenue. Upon being put to the vote the Panel unanimously agreed to delegate to officers to agree a satisfactory boundary treatment that would restrict access and prevent potential public order issues by spilling onto the public highway, as set out below.
The Panel then considered the recommendation with the amended and additional conditions to grant planning permission. Upon being put to the vote the recommendation was carried unanimously.
