The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for the demolition of existing frontage building (1 Great Eastern Street) and replace with 2no. flats (as approved under application 14/0607/FUL), alteration to the cycle / refuse area and minor fenestration alterations.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from a resident of Great Eastern Street.


The representation covered the following issues:

       i.          Specific concerns:

a.    Demolition of building at 1 Great Eastern Street by the developer without permission, only the façade was left.

b.    Took issue with the details referred to on P441-442 in the Planning Officer’s report. The application was reliant on 2m of land being conceded to 3 Great Eastern Street by the developer, but this had not yet occurred.

c.    The developer was disrespectful of the planning process.

     ii.          Asked for an adjournment or refusal decision from the Planning Committee until concerns had been addressed.


Mr Bainton (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 4 votes to 0) to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers.
