Minutes:

NicolaasPotgieter, Team Leader -Traffic Orders, Highways and Infrastructure, introduced the report, which sought the Committee’s approval to make a Stopping Up Order and an Extinguishment of Vehicular Rights Order for areas of public highway consisting of footway and road located in front of Ealing Road Library (Coronet Parade, Ealing Road) under Sections 247 and 249 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (TCPA 1990). Mr Potgieter drew Members’ attention to paragraphs 3.1 and 3.2 on page 6 of the Agenda, which highlighted that planning permission had been granted in December 2016, approving the placing of a permanent structure of modular units. The Committee heard that no objections to the draft Stopping Up Order had been received. Mr Potgieter explained that the Order making costs would be initially met by the Highways and Infrastructure Service and then recharged to the Ealing Road Library capital project costs, including an extra cost of £720 to divert Virgin Media utilities.     

 

Members of the Committee enquired whether the projected Order making costs (£6,000) would be met and if any feedback had been received from businesses operating in the area. In response, Mr Potgieter said that expenditure was expected to meet the projection, with a potential slight underspent being possible. Mr Potgieter and Ms Christine Moore, Capital Projects Manager, Regeneration and Environment, explained that local businesses had been consulted and had expressed positive opinions about the development as it would improve the area.   

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(i)            The contents of the Stopping Up Order and Extinguishment of Vehicular Rights Order report, be noted;

 

(ii)          The Stopping Up Order be approved;

 

(iii)         The Extinguishment of Vehicular Rights Order be approved; and

 

(iv)         The notices of making of these Orders be advertised, following the resolution of the Virgin Media response.

Stopping Up Order – Land North Chippenham Gardens (Kilburn Park Post Office) pdf icon PDF 452 KB

 

 

This report seeks authorisation to make a Stopping Up Order for an area of public highway consisting of footway and road located north of Chippenham Gardens under Section 247 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (TCPA 1990).

 

Minutes:

NicolaasPotgieter, Team Leader - Traffic Orders, Highways and Infrastructure, introduced the report which sought the Committee’s approval to make a Stopping Up Order for an area of public highway consisting of footway and road located north of Chippenham Gardens under Section 247 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (TCPA 1990). Mr Potgieter highlighted that the existing buildings at 5-9 Chippenham Gardens, Kilburn Park and 4-26 Stuart Road would be demolished to enable the redevelopment of the site into a part-four, five and six storey building compromising of 52 self-contained flats. The Committee was informed that no objections to the draft Stopping Up Order had been received. Mr Potgieter explained that financial implications (approximately £5,000) would be initially met by the Highways and Infrastructure Service and then recharged to the South Kilburn Programme budget as the development was part of it. 

 

The Committee enquired why the application for a Stopping Up Order had come to a meeting in February 2017 when planning permission for the development had been granted in July 2016. Ms Marie Frederick, Senior Project Manager, Estate Regeneration, explained that the Stopping Up Order was related to the timing of the planning application and if it had been authorised too early, it could have expired, which would have required the Committee to approve another Order in relation to the same development. Mr Potgieter added that the developer had been in dispute about an issue which had delayed the process.

 

RESOLVEDthat:

 

(i)         The contents of the Stopping Up Order report, be noted;

 

(ii)        The Stopping Up Order be approved; and

 

(iii)       The notice of making of the Orders be advertised.
