Members were advised that at the meeting of the North Area Planning Sub-Committee on 4 February 2019 it had been recommended that permission be granted subject to the suggested conditions and an acceptable Section 106 Legal Agreement being received within 3 months of the date of the resolution. The application was required to be determined by the Planning Committee on 19 March 2019, due to the number of objections being received, and permission was granted, subject to the receipt of an acceptable Section 106 Legal Agreement within 3 months of the date of the resolution. Since that decision, Members were advised that the applicant had requested further time to prepare the unilateral undertaking.
The Committee considered this request and accordingly it was
Resolved that permission be granted with conditions and informatives as outlined in the agenda subject to the receipt of an acceptable Section 106 Legal Agreement within 3 months of the date of resolution. Should a satisfactory Legal Agreement not be received within three months, authority be delegated to the Head of Planning Services to refuse the application for the following reason:
Reason for Refusal:
