Minutes:

The Assistant Director (Delivery) outlined the Deed of Variation to S106 Agreement (in relation to its Country Park provisions) attached to the outline permissions dated 9 October 2009 (080048/OUT and S/0054/08/0) for the Trumpington Meadows for 2200 dwellings and associated infrastructure. 

 

In response to Members’ questions, the Assistant Director (Delivery) said the following:

  i.  The Application had been brought to Committee because the item was a Deed of Variation to a S106 Agreement which was not an officer delegated matter under 1(i) of the Scheme of Delegation of the Joint Development Control Committee (JDCC).

  ii.  The Wildlife Trust’s management of the County Park had been deemed very successful.  The proposal to transfer the freehold estate to the Wildlife Trust rather than grant it a long lease (as provided by the 2009 s106 Agreement reflected that accomplishment. 

  iii.  The bridge was not part of the transfer arrangements and would be retained by the Highway’s Authority, Cambridgeshire County Council. 

  iv.  Confirmed the Wildlife Trust were satisfied with the access arrangements.

  v.  A separate legal contract had agreed an endowment for the Wildlife Trust with the deed of variation from the landowner.

  vi.  An Annex to the 2009 S106 Agreement detailed the management and maintenance arrangements for the Country Park. Any future proposals for changes would be subject to the need for a deed of variation.

 vii.  The Highways Authority had been pursuing a traffic regulation order concerning the parking with the adoption of the main highway. This was now being reconsidered due to the large number of objections that were received from occupiers of the development. However, parking was a separate matter not related to this deed.

 

The Legal Advisor believed the Country Park would benefit from better legal protection for its future by virtue of the proposed Wildlife Trust ownership.

 

The Committee

 

Resolved unanimously the Joint Development Control Committee authorise the completion of the Deed of Variation to the S106 Agreement, with delegated authority to officers to agree the final wording of the Deed of Variation
