07/2790/FUL - KINGS HOUSE SCHOOL, KINGS ROAD, RICHMOND (Kings House School Trust) pdf icon PDF 157 KB

Amend condition (NS03U) of planning permission 98/2000/FUL dated 28th October 1998 to enable an increase in the pupil numbers at the senior school from 208 to 230.

 

Officer’s recommendation:  PERMISSION

Minutes:

The Development Control Officer introduced the application and referred the Committee to a late representation received since the publication of the report.  It raised the following points:

 

·         The school had disregarded the existing condition since 2004 resulting in increased noise and disturbance for neighbours.

·         If the original condition had been enforced, the noise would be 10% less than present.

·         The benefits from the school traffic plan were offset by an increase in parking on Kings Road, made worse by an increase in the size of vehicles.

·         Concerns about why the committee had not considered this application sooner, or why there had been no enforcement action taken.

·         It was unclear what had happened since 1983 to justify approving the application.

 

The committee heard representations in favour of the application from Jan Donovan (an agent on behalf of the applicant) and Simon Redhead (a governor at the school).

 

The Committee considered the information received and points raised by speakers and the late representation and noted that officers were unaware of any official requests for enforcement action.  Members generally felt that the application was a positive one with commitments towards increasing the take-up of sustainable modes of transport and developing the Green Travel Plan.

 

It was RESOLVED that the application be APPROVED, subject to the conditions and informatives set out in the officer’s report.

The Development Control Officer introduced the application and advised Members that the water tank had been omitted from the plans, and added to condition BD05. 

 

The Development Control Officer referred to a late representation which said that infilling between the semi-detached houses in Park Road would be detrimental to the architectural merit of the road.

 

The committee heard representations against the application from Honor Bailey (a neighbour not adjoining the site) and Laura Jones (a neighbour adjoining the site).

 

The committee heard representations in favour of the application from Tracey Johnston (the applicant).

 

The Committee considered the information received and points raised by speakers. In particular, they noted the concerns about the location of a flue adjoining Ms Johnston’s property, and whether the materials used would match with the existing building.

 

It was RESOLVED that the application be APPROVED, subject to the conditions and informatives set out in the officer’s report, and the following conditions and informative:

 

  • Condition “BD10 - Sample panels of brickwork:  Sample panels of facing brickwork showing the proposed colour, texture, face-bond and pointing shall be provided on site and approved by the Local Planning Authority before the relevant parts of the works are commenced and the sample panels shall be retained on site until the work is completed and has been approved.

Use of property as a Single Family Dwellinghouse.

 

Officer’s recommendation:  PERMISSION

Minutes:

Councillor Morris declared a personal and prejudicial interest in this item as she had had some contact with the applicant about her application.  Councillor Morris left the room for the duration of this item.

 

The committee heard representations in favour of the application from Tracey Johnston (the applicant).

 

There was a difference of opinion amongst committee members about how much weight should be given to emerging policies, in particular ones that referred to HMOs.  Some members felt that this application would benefit the local area in terms of a reduction in demand for on-street parking and wider environmental and sustainable benefits such as a potential reduction in CO2 emissions.

 

It was RESOLVED that the application be APPROVED, subject to the conditions and informatives set out in the officer’s report.

Two storey extension to warehouse facility with canopy, new service yard and amendments to entrance road.

 

Officer’s recommendation:  PERMISSION

Minutes:

The Development Control Officer introduced the application and made the following amendments to the report:

 

  • Paragraph 23, amend the hours of delivery restriction to read “Original permission restricts the hours of delivery to 6.30am – 11pm Monday to Saturday and 9am – 4pm Sunday, bank or public holidays”

 

  • Remove reference to the objection received on 21 May 2011 as this was withdrawn.

  • An addendum to the Transport Statement was received on 25 May 2011 which corrected inaccuracies in the original document, relating to the number of existing car parking spaces affected by the development. Paragraph 31 of the recommendation stated “The extensions would also result in the loss of 10 existing car parking spaces reducing the number of car parking spaces available on site from 409 to 399”. The addendum to the Transport Statement corrected this to read: “The extensions would also result in the loss of 13 existing car parking spaces reducing the number of car parking spaces available on site from 409 to 396”.

 

This was not considered to materially affect the recommendation for the reasons set out in paragraph 31 of the report.

REASON:  To preserve the character, appearance and amenities of the site and nearby occupants.”

 

  • “Air conditioning:  No air conditioning apparatus, equipment or ducting shall be erected, placed or fixed to any part of the roof or external faces of the building, otherwise than as agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority.
