Consultations, representations, policy and guidance and the site’s planning history were detailed in the officer’s report which formed part of the agenda pack for this meeting.

 

Officer updates:

·         There is a correction to the report on page 36 – it should read the Parish of Radley not Kennington in the heading.

·         The parish council also wish to point out on pages 42-43 where it is stated that: the Vale are considering whether to accept the Examiner’s recommendations on the Neighbourhood Plan before deciding whether it should proceed to referendum; further work is required to ensure legal compliance with the Habitats Regulations. That the Habitats issues were resolved on 5 July, following which the Vale decided on 9 July to accept the Examiner’s recommendations and to proceed to referendum.  The referendum is to be held on 13 September.

·         Members have received further representations from residents raising concerns outlined in the reports on infrastructure, foul drainage and traffic.

·         Following a clarification request from Councillor Bob Johnston, the market housing mix (in paragraph 5.2) should be as follows - 11 x 1 bed, 40 x 2 bed, 77 x 3 bed and 56 x 4 bed, so 1 less 3 bed unit and 1 more 4 bed unit. This is based on the developers’ submitted accommodation schedule.

·         Sugworth Lane can be specifically referenced in the construction traffic management plan condition.

·         S106 contributions would be the same despite the change in housing mix, however CIL contributions would be slightly less due to the change in floor space.

·         A trigger can be formalised in the details for the play area to ensure it is not put in at the end of the development phase.

 

A motion, moved and seconded, to authorise the head of planning to approve the application with the above suggested additional/amended conditions and removal of Condition 5 (materials in accordance with approved plans) was declared carried on being put to the vote.
