    Minutes:

    Following the officer’s presentation and addendum, the Committee considered verbal representations from Peter Holmes and Adrian Clargo and Ward Councillor Narenthira, objecting to the application.  Agent, Susie Stephens also spoke.

     

    Following discussion on the application by Committee, Members voted against the application.  The motion to not approve the officer recommendation to approve the application was proposed by Councillor Zubari and seconded by Councillor Farrier.

     

    The reasons agreed by all were:

     

    1.    Loss of Green area

    2.    Visual impact of the development

    3.    Disturbance as a result of general activity,.

     

    Committee thereby RESOLVED to Refuse the application for the following reasons:

     

    1.    The proposals by reason of their siting, size, proximity to residential properties, visual appearance and loss of the existing mound and trees would be a un-neighbourly, visually dominating and obtrusive form of development that would be harmful to the visual amenities of the occupiers of properties at 2-28 Colin Drive and 178 Colin Gardens.  This would be contrary to policy DM01 of the Adopted Barnet Development Management Policies 2012.

     

    2.    The proposed development by reason of the siting of the units and associated car parking and hours of use would result in harmful noise and disturbance from general activity, that would be detrimental to the residential amenities  of the occupiers of properties at 2-28 Colin Drive and 178 Colin Gardens. This would be contrary to policies DM01 and DM04 of the Adopted Barnet Development Management Policies 2012. 

     

    3.    The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to produce a full Travel Plan and meet the associated monitoring costs of the travel plan. The proposal would therefore not address the highways impacts of the development, contrary to Policy DM17 of the Development Management Plan Policies (adopted September 2012), and the Planning Obligations SPD (adopted April 2013). 

     

    4.    The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to undertake necessary highways works. The proposal would therefore not address the highways impacts of the development, contrary to Policy DM17 of the Development Management Plan Policies (adopted September 2012), and the Planning Obligations SPD (adopted April 2013).

     

    The votes were as follows:-

     

    For (in favour of officer recommendation of approval)

    2

    Against (against officer recommendation of approval)
