2-01: 221-227 High Road - P/5323/16 pdf icon PDF 700 KB

Minutes:

PROPOSAL:

 

A ‘Change of use of the ground floor from a restaurant (Class A3) to an education centre (Class D1) and external alterations’.

 

Following questions and comments from Members, an officer advised that:

 

·                     officers had considered imposing an additional condition to prevent visitors to the application site parking in the private access road to the rear.  However, as the access road fell outside the red line boundary, it would not be possible to enforce or monitor parking there.  Furthermore, the Highways Authority had no jurisdiction on private roads.  The 16-18 age profile of the students who would be enrolled at the centre meant they were likely to travel to the site by public transport and consequently there would be few pick ups and drop offs, and in any case the applicant would not be in a position to control drop offs and pick ups.  The revised travel plan submitted by the applicant was deemed to be acceptable.  The restaurant which was currently on site had over 100 covers, and it was likely that there would be fewer cars visiting the site under the new use of the premises.  The owners of Durrant Court had the option of either installing a sign in the private access road to prevent parking there or could request the Council to implement Double Yellow Lines there in due course;

 

·                     the forecourt area of the application site was also part of the restaurant.  The applicant had the option of requesting a vehicle crossover, however, this would require planning permission;

 

·                     there would never be more than 24 students on site at any one time;

 

·                     the refuse storage would be located at the rear of the site;

 

·                     building work on the site would be minimal.  The HMO upstairs was not currently occupied;

 

·                     the application site could be accessed both from the front and the rear.

 

 

DECISION:  GRANTED, planning permission, subject to conditions listed in Appendix 1 of the officer report.

 

The Committee wished it to be recorded that the decision to grant the application was by a majority of votes.

 

Councillors Ghazanfar Ali, Simon Brown, Keith Ferry & Nitin Parekh voted for the application.

 

Councillors June Baxter, Stephen Greek and Pritesh Patel abstained from voting.
