PLANNING PROTOCOL

The Planning Committee abides by the Council’s Planning Protocol 2017.  A factsheet covering some of the key points within the protocol as well as some of the context for Haringey’s planning process is provided alongside the agenda pack available to the public at each meeting as well as on the Haringey Planning Committee webpage.

 

The planning system manages the use and development of land and buildings.  The overall aim of the system is to ensure a balance between enabling development to take place and conserving and protecting the environment and local amenities.  Planning can also help tackle climate change and overall seeks to create better public places for people to live, work and play.  It is important that the public understand that the committee makes planning decisions in this context.  These decisions are rarely simple and often involve balancing competing priorities.  Councillors and officers have a duty to ensure that the public are consulted, involved and where possible, understand the decisions being made.

 

Neither the number of objectors or supporters nor the extent of their opposition or support are of themselves material planning considerations.

 

The Planning Committee is held as a meeting in public and not a public meeting.  The right to speak from the floor is agreed beforehand in consultation with officers and the Chair.  Any interruptions from the public may mean that the Chamber needs to be cleared.

Minutes:

Members and speakers were requested to note the information as set out at item two of the agenda.

APOLOGIES

Apologies for absence were received from Councillors Hinchcliffe and Stone.

HGY/2020/1851 - Land at Haringey Heartlands, between Hornsey Park Road, Mayes Road, Coburg Road, Western Road and the Kings Cross / East Coast Mainline, Clarendon Gas Works, Olympia Trading Estate, and 57-89 Western Road N8 pdf icon PDF 4 MB

Proposal: Application for approval of reserved matters relating to appearance, landscaping, layout, scale, access, pertaining to Buildings E1, E2 and E3, forming Phase 3 of the Eastern Quarter, including the construction of residential units (Use Class C3), commercial floorspace, basement, and new landscaped public space pursuant to planning permission HGY/2017/3117 dated 19th April 2018.

 

Recommendation: GRANT

 

 

Minutes:

The Committee considered an application for the approval of reserved matters relating to appearance, landscaping, layout, scale, access, pertaining to Buildings E1, E2 and E3, forming Phase 3 of the Eastern Quarter, including the construction of residential units (Use Class C3), commercial floorspace, basement, and new landscaped public space pursuant to planning permission HGY/2017/3117 dated 19th April 2018.

 

Officers and Matthew Rees (on behalf of the applicant) responded to questions from the Committee:

-            The scheme was part of a very large hybrid permission granted in 2018.  Affordable housing had been determined at the outline stage, and 32.5% affordable housing would be provided across the development.  This would mean that some areas of the scheme would have more affordable housing than other areas.

-            There were currently a number of temporary meanwhile uses on the site and these businesses were aware that the tenancies were temporary.

-            The site would create 10,000sqm of employment space.

-            64% of the units were dual aspect, which was an improvement to the 45-55% agreed to in the outline consent.  Any single aspect units would overlook a wide street with trees and planting and not look directly into another unit.

-            The community area would be run as a not for profit space and would be managed by the Estate Management Team.  Any surplus at the end of the year could be used to provide free hire to community groups.  Under the s106, the applicant was required to submit a management plan for the community room and part of this plan could include a suggested list of residents groups and councillors to be consulted on the spending of any surplus funds.

-            The daylight and sunlight levels were reasonable considering the development was in a dense location and the buildings were in the heart of the development. 

-            The development as a whole was required to provide 10% disabled car parking spaces.  This element provided 6% but officers would ensure that 10% was achieved as each element of the outline permission came forward.

-            £7.5m would be collected from the development in CIL payments.

-            The applicant had engaged closely with the Council’s Transport Team who along with TfL supported the road layout proposals.  The pavement and the road would be segregated and any further segregation for cycles would reduce the pedestrian space.  The road would be predominantly used by cyclists so would be cycle-friendly.  Members commented that a separate cycle lane would be preferable.

 

Councillor Williams proposed that a condition be added to redesign the landscaping to include a segregated cycle lane in the existing road.  Councillor Basu seconded the proposal.

 

Mr Hermitage summed up the report and advised that the recommendation was to grant the application subject to the s106 agreement, the conditions and informatives set out in the report and addendum, an amendment to the landscaping condition relating to the redesign to include a cycle lane, and an amendment to the community room condition to include an annual consultation with a  ...  view the full minutes text for item 452.

-            Haringey Building Control would be used.

-            An informative could be provided to request the applicant to explore additional community use activities.

Mr Hermitage summed up the report and advised that the recommendation was to grant the application subject to the s106 agreement, the conditions and informatives set out in the report and addendum, the amendment to condition one and the addition of an informative in relation to community use activities.

HGY/2020/1361 - Nos. 807 High Road, N17 8ER pdf icon PDF 616 KB

Proposal - Full planning application for the demolition of existing buildings and the erection of a replacement building up to four storeys to include residential (C3); retail (A1); and flexible D1/B1 uses; hard and soft landscaping works including a residential podium; and associated works.

 

Recommendation: GRANT

Minutes:

Clerks note – the Chair suspended Standing Orders at 21.50 to allow the meeting to continue past 22.00 for the consideration of this item.

 

The Committee considered an application for the approval of the demolition of existing buildings and the erection of a replacement building up to four storeys to include residential (C3); retail (A1); and flexible D1/B1 uses; hard and soft landscaping works including a residential podium; and associated works.

 

Officers and the applicant team responded to questions from the Committee:

-           Block b could be accessed via the High Road and by the alleyway.  Officers had looked to ensure that the entrance was well lit and had a canopy to make the space more hospitable and welcoming.

-           The dentist would be accessed from the High Road, via a lift.

-           The cycle parking had been redesigned to be solely residential.

-           A condition to develop a waste management plan had been included, and it was expected that it would be the responsibility of the management company or residents to take the bins to the front of the building for waste collection.  Members commented that the current proposals were not suitable and that further options should be explored.

-           The relocation of the Co-Op Funeral Directors had been signed off by the company’s surveyors.

-           Discussions were being held with Tottenham Hotspur to ensure that parking was managed better on matchdays and the use of Percival Court.

-           The wheelchair accessible unit was contained in Block B which was accessible from the High Road.

-           There was an additional legal obligation to ensure that future residents were aware of the adjoining pub garden prior to occupation.

 

Members commented that the playground area on a roof next to a loud pub did not make sense.  The applicant advised that it was not a playground but a communal terrace space which could accommodate the small number of children that may live in the building. 

 

The Committee requested that condition one be amended to reduce the time limit to three years.

 

Mr Hermitage summed up the report and advised that the recommendation was to grant the application subject to the s106 agreement, the conditions and informatives set out in the report and addendum, and the amendment to condition one to reduce the time limit to three years.

 

Councillor Cawley-Harrison moved that the application be refused on the grounds that Percival Court did not provide a safe passageway for access, including residents accessing cycle parking, commercial premises and access to the disabled parking bay.  Councillor Bevan seconded the proposal and added the unsuitable waste management proposal to the reasons for rejection.

 

Following a vote with six in favour and four against, it was RESOLVED that the application be refused.
