General Item - 14/1252/FUL - Citylife House, Sturton Street

Decision Maker: Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


On 4 March 2015 Planning Committee considered an application (14/1252/FUL) for the change of the existing building to a Class D1 dance school/studio including limited alterations to the external envelope of the building. The Committee resolved to approve the application subject to conditions and completion of a S106 agreement for ECATP contribution (£31,831).


As no highway project was identified at the stage of the application, the Officer’s report sought Committee’s approval to secure the contribution to an identified project.


On the basis the Council can no longer pool contributions from developments without having identified a local project to secure it against, the (March) Officer’s report sought approval for the following:


The County Highways Authority (CHA) has identified the “Project 3 ‘Remodelling St Matthew's Street Junction’” as the project to secure the ECATP contribution (£31,831) through a S106 agreement.


The October Committee were recommended to agree:

  i.  The project that the County Highway Authority has identified above for the ECATP contribution to be spend on and for the contribution to be paid prior to occupation.

  ii.  To insert a clause in the agreement to require the applicant or title in successor to confirm in writing to the Council once work has been completed and when the building is occupied.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to accept the officer recommendations.
