Reconsideration of Section 106 Agreement following Viability Assessment for Residential Development at Barton Lane, Armthorpe (14/01385/OUT) pdf icon PDF 176 KB

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report seeking approval to a variation to the Section 106 Agreement for a development of 22 dwellings at the former Blacks Engineering Works, Barton Lane, Armthorpe.

 

It was reported that at its meeting on 4th April, 2015, Planning Committee approved outline planning permission for a residential development and the decision noticed being issued on the 12th December, 2016 following the signing of the Section 106 Agreement. It was noted that no viability assessment was undertaken and the land owner agreed to the full quota of contributions in order to gain permission and sell on the site.

 

Members were advised that the site had since been sold to the current applicants who applied for a reserved matters application for 22 dwellings, which was approved. The new owners are unable to borrow the money to develop the scheme due to the necessary S106 contributions. The developer had submitted a viability appraisal and supporting evidence which had been independently assessed by 2 financial viability consultants, the latter being the District Valuer (DVS).

 

It was reported that the DVS had considered that the price paid for the land was having a significant impact on the deliverability of the scheme and considered the current S106 makes the scheme unviable. The DVS had suggested that the agreement be reduced to include 2 (9%) affordable houses and £30,000 financial contribution, which could either be split between Education and Public Open Space or dedicated to 1 or the other.

 

In accordance with Planning Guidance ‘Having Your Say at Planning Committee’, Stephen Ridley, the Applicant, spoke in support of the application for the duration of up to 5 minutes.

 

RESOLVED that a Deed of Variation to vary the terms of the Section 106 Agreement dated 7th September 2016, to amend the affordable housing units from 6 to 2 units and reduce the combined Education and Public Open Space (POS) contribution from £109,165 to £30,000; the £30,000 be allocated to POS improvements and that delegated authority be given to Officers to determine where the POS improvements are to be made, but that the project be within the vicinity of the site as required by the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) regulations.

Article 4 Direction relating to Houses in Multiple Occupation pdf icon PDF 226 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report on the outcome of the recent public consultation on a proposed Article 4 Direction (A4D) and an Additional Licensing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in parts of central Doncaster.

 

It was reported that an A4D was a local determination to restrict permitted development rights under the Town and Country Planning Act. It would mean that a property owner within the A4D area who wanted to turn their property into a small HMO of 3-6 people would be required to apply for planning permission, whereas at present, they would not need to. The A4D was proposed for the area covered by the plan at Appendix 1 of the report.

 

Members were advised that additional licensing gave the Council the power to require all landlords of HMOs included in the scheme, to apply for a licence and provide details of the management arrangements and the property. This would enable Officers to know where these properties were and place conditions on the licence holder to ensure minimum standards of safety, welfare and management were maintained.

 

It was noted that the A4D, being created under the Town and Country Planning Act, was a matter that the Committee may wish to take a view on and make such a view known to Cabinet prior to making a decision to proceed.

 

RESOLVED that the report on the proposed Article 4 Direction relating to Houses in Multiple Occupation be noted.

Sterefibre at Hazel Lane Quarry, Hampole - Planning Enforcement (Exclusion Paragraphs 5 and 7)

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report advising Members on the on-going position in relation to the long standing breach of planning control of the continued storage of Sterefibre (SF) on a purpose built storage pad at the site of Hazel Lane Quarry.

 

Members were advised of the recent receipt of new planning applications and a condition discharge request to address the proposed removal of part of the SF from the site and the impact that this has had on the appeals which were made in respect of the refusal of the 2015 planning application, refusal of the application for a Certificate of Lawful Use, and refusal to discharge Condition 29 of the Quarry permission.

 

Members were presented with background to the issue and an update on the process followed to date.

 

            RESOLVED that the report be noted.
