Woodside Park Underground Station, Station Approach, London, N12 8SE (Totteridge) pdf icon PDF 517 KB

    Minutes:

    Before discussion on the application the Chairman informed the Committee Members that an objector had written and asked for the application to be deferred. The deferral request had been made to allow St Barnabus building an opportunity to speak to the Pocket Homes applicants. The Chairman explained this would be procedurally inappropriate and therefore the request would not be granted. The Chairman invited the lawyer to say a few words on the matter.

     

    Ms Mrinalini (HBPL lawyer) reminded Members that the Council had decided to hear the matter afresh, as the light assessment contained within the most recent report had not been before the committee when the permission was previously granted. As several months had passed since then, in the interest of fairness to all parties, it had been decided that the application be reconsidered. Ms Mrinalini stressed the importance that Members must keep an open mind and make their decisions based on good planning reasons. However, where an aspect of the decision was accepted in January, Members should ask themselves whether any new evidence had been produced before them to take a different view in respect of the matter. She urged the committee to take care to avoid any suggestion of perverse or irrational behaviour.

     

    The Committee received the report.

     

    Representations were heard from Mr Chris Plenderleith (objector), Ms Shreya Chaudhuri (supporter) and the applicant.

     

    The Head of Governance explained that the objector had some slides they wished to share with the Committee, which would be done virtually. The Lawyer reminded Members that the alternative scheme proposed by the objector was not before the committee and was therefore not a material consideration.

     

    Following discussion on the item, the Committee voted on the officer recommendation to APPROVE the application subject to the conditions and the s106 agreement for the reasons detailed in the report and the addendum.
