Minutes:

PROPOSAL:  Demolition Of Existing Buildings: Existing Sports Building, Peel House, Museum Cottage, Gardeners Compound, Boyer Webb Pavilion, Pavilion Next To The Athletics Track; Construction Of New Sports Building Over 3 Levels (7269 Sqm); New Science Building Over 3 Levels (3675 Sqm); New Landscaping Core From Existing Chapel Terrace To The Athletics Track At The Base Of Hill; New Visitors Car Parking On Football Lane Adjacent To Maths And Physics School Buildings; Re-Routing And Re-Grading Of Private Access Road; Alterations To Landscaping And Servicing For Dining Hall; Relocation Of Multi Use Games Area For Moretons Boarding House To South West Of Dining Hall

 

Following questions from Members, an officer advised that:

 

·                     the extension of MOL (Metropolitan Open Land) would be secured under  binding legal agreement and would thereafter be treated as MOL;

 

·                     the proposed MOL area would be largely composed of soft landscaping as existing buildings within the MOL extension land would be demolished which would open up a considerable expanse of land connecting it to the existing MOL.  There would be an area of hard landscaping at the stepped access stair route of the site.  The proposals had been reviewed and deemed acceptable by both officers and the GLA;

 

·                     it would be possible to re-submit the final version of the Community Use Agreement to a future meeting of the Planning Committee for approval;

 

·                     existing community groups, which were not based in Harrow and who used the sports facilities at the school would not be prejudiced and would retain their current levels of access.  The applicant was committed to ensuring that 75% of the community use would be by Harrow schools/Harrow community groups;

 

·                     the CUA would ensure local Harrow schools would have access to the sports facilities at 40% below the benchmark value and this would be stipulated in the legal agreement.  He added that the CUA also included Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) which would be reported and reviewed by the Management Committee on an annual basis;

 

·                     the CUA would be monitored by Staff at the school, the Divisional Director for Education at Harrow Council, the Head of Harrow School Improvement Partnership, the Harrow Schools’ Participation Adviser and a local resident.  A fifth member, representing local schools was also being sought and this would be discussed further;

 

·                     the CUA was a legal requirement under the S.106 agreement and if the current CUA were to be terminated for any reason in the future, a new CUA would need to be put in place;

 

·                     the application would only be referred to the Mayor of London, if it was granted by the Planning Committee.

 

A Member requested that this should particularly benefit those schools where there were large numbers of pupils in receipt of free school meals.

 

a Member proposed refusal on the following grounds:

 

1.            The proposal would cause unacceptable harm to local character and heritage assets, including conservation areas in Harrow on the Hill and surrounding areas, the Harrow on the Hill area of special character, and  ...  view the full minutes text for item 411.
