RECOMMENDATION:  That the Committee resolve to GRANT planning permission subject to:

Referral to the Mayor of London (stage 2 referral) and the completion of a legal agreement to secure the planning obligations set out within the Committee report as amended by the supplementary report and other planning obligation(s) considered necessary by the Head of Planning.

 

That the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to negotiate the legal agreement indicated above.

 

That the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to issue the planning permission and impose conditions and informatives to secure the matters set out within the Committee report..

 

That the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to make changes to the wording of the Committee’s decision (such as to delete, vary or add conditions, informatives, planning obligations or reasons for the decision) prior to the decision being actioned, provided that the Head of Planning is satisfied that any such changes could not reasonably be regarded as deviating from the overall principle of the decision reached by the Committee nor that such change(s) could reasonably have led to a different decision having been reached by the Committee.

 

That, if by the expiry date of this application (subject to any amendments/extensions to the expiry date agreed by both parties) the legal agreement has not been completed, the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to refuse planning permission.

 

That the Committee confirms that adequate provision has been made, by the imposition of conditions, for the preservation or planting of trees as required by Section 197 of the Town and Country Planning

Act 1990.

 

Mr Toby Huntingford (Principal Planning Officer) introduced the report, highlighting the key issues of the application.  In reference to the supplementary report, he drew Members’ attention to changes to Section 106 Heads of Term and amendments to conditions 15 and 16 as set out in the supplementary report.  Mr Huntingford also referenced points of clarification and correction to the Committee report. He added that the Council’s Highways officers had confirmed that the introduction of a 20 mph zone in the area (as referenced in the committee report and supplementary report) could be secured through the payment of financial contributions rather than works under the S278 agreement.  Members were also advised that the Section 106 Heads of Terms were also recommended to be amended the include an obligation to enter into  Section 38 and Section 278 Highways agreements for the provision of the loading bay, works to the accesses to the highway and the adoption of land adjacent to North End Road as public highway.

Minutes:

PROPOSAL: Demolition of existing building and erection of a part four and part five storey building comprising drinking establishment (Use class A4) at ground and basement level and 9 self-contained flats above (5 x 1-bed, 3 x 2-bed and 1 x 3-bed) including a new residents entrance gate, glazed screens and doors to side elevation fronting Drakes Courtyard, cycle and waste storage.

 

RECOMMENDATION: That the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to issue the planning permission and impose conditions (and informatives) to secure the matters set out within the Committee report.

 

That the Head of Planning be granted delegated authority to make changes to the wording of the Committee’s decision (such as to delete, vary or add conditions, informatives, planning obligations or reasons for the decision) prior to the decision being actioned, provided that the Head of Planning is satisfied that any such changes could not reasonably be regarded as deviating from the overall principle of the decision reached by the Committee nor that such change(s) could reasonably have led to a different decision having been reached by the Committee.

 

Mr Damian Manhertz (Area Planning Team Leader) introduced the report and set out the key issues of the application.  He clarified the differences between this and the previous application for the site that was refused on delegated authority.  The main issues were the lack of re-provision of A4 uses and quality of residential units which the current application had overcome.  With reference to the supplementary report Mr Manhertz reported that the applicant had provided an indicative basement and ground floor layout which showed how the premises could be laid out to allow the performance of live music.  He added that the proposal would offer an opportunity to construct a new, modern building that would be better sound insulated than the existing building which in turn can reduce the transfer of loud noise or music to nearby sensitive uses.

 

Ms Jane Gleeson (agent) and Mr David Bellis (architect) were present to clarify issues that members might have on the application. Members heard that the proposed development would re-provide an A4 public house use with adequate sound insulation to minimise the transfer of loud music.  The architect and agent clarified that they were confident that the layout of the building would facilitate live music performances. The agent clarified that there would not be dedicated area for smoking for the proposed building, as there was no dedicated area for the existing premises.  Mr Bellis added that as Kilburn High Road consisted of an eclectic mix of properties, the design of the proposed development would not be uncharacteristic of the area.

 

DECISION: Granted planning permission as recommended.

(Voting on the recommendation was unanimous: For 7, Against 0)
