The minutes of the Planning and Development Committee held on 8 November 2013 were taken as read and approved as a true record.

13/28 SCHEDULE OF REMAINING PLANNING APPLICATIONS TO BE CONSIDERED BY COMMITTEE

The Head of Development submitted plans deposited as applications to develop land under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Head of Development reported thereon.

SUSPENSION OF COUNCIL PROCEDURE RULE NO 10 - ORDER OF BUSINESS

ORDERED that, in accordance with Council Procedure Rule No 10, the Committee agreed to vary the order of business.

ORDERED that the following applications be determined as shown:

 

M/GRG/1019/13/P - Formation of neighbourhood park including new footpaths, cycleways, fencing, associated play areas, and reprofiling of Marton West Beck at The Vale (Land bounded by Keith Road, The Valley, Marton Burn Road and Eastbourne Road, Middlesbrough) for Ms A Gladwin

 

The Head of Development advised Members that the above application had been identified as requiring a site visit by Members of the Planning and Development Committee. Accordingly a site visit had been held on the Friday prior to the meeting.

 

Full details of the planning application, plan status and relevant planning history were outlined in the report. The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.

 

Neighbourhood consultations had taken place and seven objections to the application had been received the details of which were included in the report. The Head of Development advised that some of the issues raised by the objectors in relation to the effect of the scheme on the value of properties close to the development and the impact on insurance premiums were not material planning considerations. The Environment Agency had offered no objections to the application subject to a condition that the scheme was carried out in accordance with the Flood Risk Assessment.

 

The Head of Development advised Members that it was unusual for a Planning Committee to refuse an application submitted by officers of its own local authority. If Members were not minded to approve the application they could refer the application back and instruct officers to deal with the application in another way.

 

The applicant addressed the Committee and spoke in support of the application. Councillor Rostron, Ward Councillor for Linthorpe, elected to address the Committee in objection to the application. An objector elected to address the Committee in opposition to the scheme on behalf of those objectors present at the meeting.  

 

In response to a query with regard to the proposed funding of the application, Members were advised that the Environment Agency were funding 50% of the beck realignment works and the remaining 50% was to be match funded through Joint Venture funding from Erimus Housing.

 

In response to a query with regard to whether the application could be revised to redesign the beck realignment 500m from the Marton West Beck location, Members were advised that it was not possible to redesign the scheme in such a short timescale and if the funding was not utilised in the current financial year, it was likely that the Environment Agency funding for the project would be lost.

 

ORDERED that the application be Approved on Condition subject to the conditions detailed in the report.

 

M/FP/0967/13/P  - Variation of condition 1 of M/FP/0800/01/P to extend opening hours to 00:00 to 24:00 Monday to Sunday at Asda Store, 377 Ormesby Road, Park End, Middlesbrough for Asda Stores Ltd
