Minutes:

The Committee received an application for full planning permission.

 

The application sought planning permission for 26 dwellings with a mix of four 4-bed and twenty-two 5-bed and an offer of 9 affordable housing units delivered on an adjacent site.

 

The application was presently with the Planning Inspectorate on appeal against non-determination which meant that the local planning authority no longer had any power to determine it. The Officer’s report sought Members’ endorsement of a minded-to position for a refusal decision. Subject to Members’ endorsement, Officers would then have approval to submit a Statement of Case to the Planning Inspectorate recommending the application be dismissed on the grounds specified therein.

 

The Committee received two representations in objection to the application.

 

The representations covered the following issues:

  i.  a photograph of Sandy Lane was displayed for Members to see;

  ii.  felt Sandy Lane was unsuitable for construction vehicles to drive up and down;

  iii.  felt access to the site should be from Elizabeth Way;

  iv.  raised concerns regarding car parking if the development went forward noting some residents would not park underground and some property owners would have more than one car and felt that the number of visitors had been underestimated;

  v.  noted objections which raised concerns about housing density.

  vi.  raised concerns about the impact on De Freville Avenue and Sandy Lane if the development went ahead. There would be lots of movements on these streets from bicycles, e-bikes, cargo bikes, pedestrians and cars;

 vii.  noted in the past that a dust bin lorry and fire engine were unable to gain access as the road was partially blocked;

viii.  noted visibility was poor when exiting Sandy Lane into De Freville Avenue;

  ix.  noted the Highways Authority would not adopt Sandy Lane;

  x.  wanted a traffic management order to regulate Sandy Lane as if it was adopted; and

  xi.  asked the Committee and the Planning Inspector to consider the traffic access and safety issues in Sandy Lane.

 

The Interim Development and Planning Compliance Manager advised that paragraph 10.166 of the Officer’s report be amended to read ‘Delegated authority is granted to Officers to negotiate and complete a s106 Agreement under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 in line with the Heads of Terms in paragraph 10.133 of this report in the event that one is required as part of the appeal process’.

 

The Committee:

 

Resolved (unanimously) to endorse the Officer’s minded to refuse position for the reasons set out in the Officer’s report subject to:

i.  an amendment to reason for refusal 2 to include a reference to air source heat pumps;

ii.  an amendment to reason for refusal 4 to include a reference to gated communities and social cohesion;

iii.  an amendment to reasons for refusal 2 and 4 regarding stepped access;

iv.  the amendment to paragraph 10.166 of the Officer’s report as recommended by the Interim Development and Planning Compliance Manager; and

v.  delegated authority to Officers to draft the amendments detailed above and to include reference to the appropriate NPPF policies.

Councillor Gawthrope Wood and the Chair Councillor Smart withdrew from the meeting for this item and did not participate in the discussion or decision making for the item.

 

Councillor D.Baigent as Vice-Chair, chaired the Committee for the determination of this application. 

 

The Committee received an application for full planning permission.

 

The application sought approval for:

(1) a two-storey extension with single storey projecting bay for a Mimbar pulpit;

(2) an increase in the total number of occupants permitted at any one time for the community use of the ground floor of the premises on:

(i) Saturday to Thursday between 09:00 hrs and 23:00 hrs with up to a maximum of 29 occupants;

(ii) Friday between 09:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs with up to a maximum of 29 occupants and;

(iii) on Friday between 12:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs with up to a maximum of 37 occupants and;

(iv) on Friday between 16:00 hrs and 23:00 hrs with up to a maximum of 29 occupants.

(3) (i) The community use on the ground floor of the premises between 09:00 hrs and 23:00 hrs Monday to Sunday inclusive;

(iii) during the period of Ramadan only, between 23:30 hrs and 02:30 hrs the following day, for up to 2 hours, Monday to Sunday inclusive, with up to a maximum of 37 occupants.

 

The Committee received two representations in objection to the application from residents of Darwin Drive.

 

The representations covered the following issues:

  i.  represented themselves and 25 other people / 17 properties within the vicinity of the application site;

  ii.  a petition had been submitted objecting to the application;

  iii.  objected to the increased hours of use and the number of people attending as this would adversely impact the residents nearby;

  iv.  noise and disturbance would be caused during the night;

  v.  noted that different versions of the planning application had been submitted but the impact assessment by officers had not changed;

  vi.  in 2011, the North Area Committee rejected the application on the grounds that it would adversely affect residential amenity;

 vii.  the application would increase the size, scale and intensity of use of the site and cause unacceptable noise at night;

viii.  requested that due weight was given to the professional opinion of those advising the Committee and reasons be given if Members disagreed;

  ix.  referred to NPPF paragraph 180 and Cambridge Local Plan Policy 35 and said the same rules should apply to all community rooms in the area;

  x.  considered planning permission granted on a trial basis would place the onus on residents to prove disturbance which was tricky to do;

  xi.  noted that an Environmental Health consultation response from August 2022 stated that the application could have potential significant adverse noise impacts. The World Health Organisation detailed what these impacts might be; and

 xii.  expressed concerns about breaches of planning conditions.

 

A representative of the Applicant addressed the Committee in support of the application.

 

The Interim Development Management and Planning Compliance Manager advised the Committee that following the judicial review of its Committee decision on 1 December 2021, the Court subsequently quashed the Council’s decision to grant planning permission hence the Committee must now consider the application afresh as now presented. The description of the planning application had been amended to include reference to Ramadan and to more accurately reflect what the applicant was seeking.

 

Following Member discussion around a temporary permission being granted for part 3(iii) of the application proposal, the Interim Development Management and Planning Compliance Manager commented that in their opinion a temporary permission with regard to part (3)(iii) of the Applicant’s proposal would be unreasonable given the integral nature that part (3)(iii) has with the use of the building nevertheless, that there was some flexibility regarding a temporary permission for part 3(ii) of the proposal.

 

Members voted on the Officer’s recommendation to refuse the application for the reason set out in the Officer’s report. There were no votes cast in favour but a unanimous vote against accepting the Officer recommendation.

 

Officers asked Members to provide reasons for supporting approval of the application contrary to the Officer recommendation which were given as follows.

i.  Did not oppose the extension the use of the building had been on-going for some 20 years.

ii.  Approval would enable Ramadan to be held/ celebrated enabling the building to be used for its purpose; it was an important provision for the community.

iii.  Considered the increased hours and people as set out in the Applicant’s proposal 3(ii) should be conditioned for a year to ensure that the Management Plan was robust and being met.

iv.  Considered the issues regarding noise overnight could be managed through robust conditions and through a time limited permission.

v.  Wanted a robust noise management plan particularly for noise arising from those arriving and exiting the building.

vi.  The potential noise from the site during the morning, the afternoon and the evening time, would be no more than that created by people talking in the street or vehicle noise similar to background noise.

vii.  Considered Ramadan was a short period and an important community festival.  Christmas celebration and student May Balls were not dissimilar.

viii.  Expressed concern with the early morning hours [02.50-07.00] and requested a temporary permission and a noise management plan, which included the need for monitoring decibel readings.

 

At this point the Legal Officer reminded Members they were in a neutral position and whilst they had voted against accepting the Officer recommendation they had made no other resolution. He referred Members to the advice which had been provided by the Council’s Environmental Health Officer reminding Members of the last two sentences of the Officer’s reason for refusal which stated: ‘The application site is in a residential area consequently the use of the site and the building is not considered appropriate for any further intensification of their use. The mitigation measures being proposed to overcome harm are not considered appropriate or sufficiently robust to overcome the identified to the amenity of the neighbouring properties’.

 

Members indicated that they were minded to approve the application. The Planning Officer shared a proposed list of draft conditions on the television screens within the Council Chamber and talked Members through them.
