The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for erection of a three storey building to accommodate 5 studio flats, together with minor alterations to the rear of existing building.


The Planning Officer referred to the amended recommendation set out on the amendment sheet:


Pre-Committee Amendments to Recommendation: Additional Construction Method Statement to read as:


“Prior to the commencement of development of any reserved matters approval, a Construction Method Statement (CMS) shall be submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority.  The CMS shall demonstrate how the construction of the reserved matters approval accords with the details of construction criteria A-U (except criteria E) of the Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP). In addition to criteria A-V, the CMS shall also provide a specific construction programme and a plan identifying: the contractor site storage area/compound; screening and hoarding locations; access arrangements for vehicles, plant and personnel; building material, plant and equipment storage areas; the parking of vehicles of site operatives and visitors; and the location of contractor offices. Thereafter the development shall be undertaken in accordance with the agreed details unless otherwise agreed in writing by the local planning authority.


Reason: To ensure the environmental impact of the construction of the development is adequately mitigated and in the interests of the amenity of nearby residents/occupiers (Cambridge Local Plan 2006 policy 4/13).”


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the amended officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers (including additional condition set out above).
