    Minutes:

    The Chairman introduced the item which had been presented and discussed at the previous meeting and deferred to allow Members to undertake a site visit. The Planning Officer gave a summary of the application, including proposing an amendment to Condition 16, adding the words at the end of Section A; ‘For the avoidance of doubt these details should include acoustic fencing along the Eastern elevation of the proposed MUGA facing 51 Oakleigh Park North’. The Officer added that there had been additional correspondence from Sport England withdrawing their holding objection subject to the approval of conditions which have not yet been agreed and highlighted that if the Committee was minded these could be agreed with Sport England in consultation with the Chairman or by delegated authority to the Head of Planning. Members then had an opportunity to ask the Officer questions and discuss the application.

     

    Councillor Sowerby (Ward Councillor) proposed a motion to include a condition on the hours of use for the MUGA, as follows;

     

    The proposed MUGA shall not be brought into use until details of the proposed hours of operation of the MUGA have been submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority. The proposed use shall thereafter be operated in accordance with the agreed details and shall be closed and not open to public or private use outside the consented hours.

     

    Reason: To ensure that the proposed development does not prejudice the enjoyment of the occupiers of their homes in accordance with Policy DM04 of the Development Management Policies DPD (adopted September 2012) and Policy 7.15 of the London Plan 2016.
