18/1353/FUL - Kingsway Clinic, Carlton Way

Decision Maker: Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for the conversion of former NHS Clinic into 4no. flats.


Councillor Green proposed an amendment to the Officer’s recommendation to improve the boundary wall visual impact through a landscape condition. The Senior Planner suggested amending the boundary condition to include planting.


This amendment was carried unanimously.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved(by 6 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 and additional boundary treatment condition.


7. Prior to the occupation of the units, details of a boundary treatment for the flat adjacent to Carlton Way shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The boundary treatment should provide some defensible space for this occupier. The boundary treatment shall be completed in accordance with the approved details prior to the first occupation of the development (or other timetable agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority) and retained as approved thereafter.


Reason: To ensure an appropriate boundary treatment is implemented in the interests of visual amenity and privacy (Cambridge Local Plan 2018 policies 55, 57 and 59).
