Minutes:

The Committee received a report and application (HW/FUL/20/00161) on the erection of a residential building ranging between 7 and 9 storeys providing 49 flats, associated parking, amenity areas and other associated works on land North of Aylmer House, Kitson Way, Harlow.

 

Representations were heard from an objector and the applicant’s agent.

 

As Councillor Jean Clark had joined the meeting following the Officer’s presentation she did not take part in the vote.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission is GRANTED subject to:

 

A     The conditions detailed in the report and the amended condition 16 set out in the supplementary report; and

 

B    A section 106 agreement to secure the Head of Terms detailed within the report with the amendments concerning affordable housing set out in the supplementary report.

 

Should the S106 agreement not be signed by the applicant by 30 December 2020 (3 months from the date of Development Management Committee), powers are delegated to the Head of Planning to refuse the planning application, if appropriate, for the reason set out below:

 

Suitable provision for affordable housing, public transport improvements and outdoor space improvements has not been secured. The application therefore fails to adequately address the affordable housing, public transport and open space requirements arising as a consequence of the proposed form of development and is contrary to the requirements of the NPPF and adopted and emerging Local Plan Policies.
