    Gateway House has single aspect residential units in the elevation facing the application site. Members expressed concern with the proposed development’s impact on the light levels to the windows and rooms on this elevation, as detailed in the committee report.

    CARRIED – it was resolved that the application is REFUSED on the grounds that the proposed development would, by reason of its size, scale, mass, height and siting, detrimentally impact the levels of light received by the neighbouring occupiers at Gateway House, No. 322 Regents Park Road, which would be harmful to the residential amenities of these occupiers. The application is therefore considered unacceptable and contrary to Policy DM01 of Barnet’s Development Management Policies Document DPD (2012) and Barnet’s Residential Design Guidance SPD (2016).

     

    In addition, there is no legal agreement (Section 106) therefore no ability to secure obligations and contributions as outlined in Recommendation III of the report:

     

     1         That if the above agreement has not been completed or Section 106 agreement has not been submitted by 30.11.2020, unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Service Director for Planning and Building Control REFUSE the application under delegated powers for the following reason(s):                     

                                                   

                1.         The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to meet the costs of the contributions to public street tree planting in the vicinity of the site. The proposal would therefore not address the impacts of the development, contrary to Policy DM01 of the Adopted Development Management Policies DPD.                        

                           

                2.         The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to mitigate the highways impacts of the proposed development and it is therefore considered that it would have a detrimental impact on the free flow of traffic and parking provision contrary to policy CS9 of the Adopted Core Strategy and policy DM17 of the Adopted Development Management Policies DPD.       

                           

                3.         The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to meet the costs of the required carbon off-set provision. The proposal would therefore not address the impacts of the development, contrary to Policy 5.2 of the London Plan (2016), Policy CS9 of the Local Plan Core Strategy (adopted September 2012) and Policy DM04 of the Adopted Development Management Policies DPD.     

                           

                4.         The proposed development does not include a formal undertaking to provide an SME-accessible workspace plan or late stage review mechanism regarding commuted sums in lieu of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
