To consider the attached reports of the Head of Planning and Development, for the following applications.
APPLICATION FOR PLANNING PERMISSION 102286/FUL/20 - FORMER SALE MASONIC HALL, TATTON ROAD, SALE
The Head of Planning and Development submitted a report concerning an application for planning permission for the demolition of Sale Masonic Hall and the erection of 29 apartments, with associated landscaping and amenity provision.
It was moved and seconded that planning permission be refused.
The motion was put to the vote and declared carried.
RESOLVED: That planning permission be refused for the following reasons:-
(1) The proposed development by reason of its site coverage, height, scale, massing and layout would have a dominating and adverse impact on the street scene, fail to integrate with and complement neighbouring development, fail to make the best of the opportunity to improve the character and quality of the area and represent an overdevelopment of the site. The proposed development is therefore contrary to Policy L7 of the Trafford Core Strategy, the National Planning Policy Framework and the National Design Guide.
(2) The proposed development would have a harmful impact on the amenity of existing residential properties and future occupiers of the proposed development by reason of:
(a) its proximity to existing windows serving residential properties on Tatton Road and Chapel Road which would result in significant overlooking and a unacceptable reduction in privacy for occupiers of these neighbouring properties; and
(b) the size of internal living space of the proposed apartments would not meet the nationally described space standards (NDSS) which would result in an unacceptable living environment for occupiers of the proposed development.
The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policy L7 of the Trafford Core Strategy, the Council's adopted Planning Guidance 1: New Residential Development, the National Planning Policy Framework and the Technical Housing Standards.
(3) The proposed development would not provide sufficient off-street car parking for occupiers of the development, including accessible car parking, which would result in:
(i) On-street car parking generated by the development and a level of harm to residential amenity which would not be mitigated by the proposed Traffic Regulation Order measures.
(ii) A development that was not fully accessible and useable by all sections of the community.
The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policies L4 and L7 of the Trafford Core Strategy, Trafford SPD3 Parking Standards and Design, the National Planning Policy Framework and the National Design Guide.
APPLICATION FOR PLANNING PERMISSION 103014/FUL/20 - 361 STOCKPORT ROAD, TIMPERLEY
The Head of Planning and Development submitted a report concerning an application for planning permission for the change of use of existing retail shop (Class E) to hot food takeaway (sui generis) and installation of ventilation/extraction equipment to rear of property.
RESOLVED: That Members are minded to grant planning permission for the development and in the event that no further representations are received by the 17th June 2021 that raise any new material considerations, that the determination of the application hereafter be deferred and delegated to the Head of Planning and Development with the conditions now determined.
APPLICATION FOR PLANNING PERMISSION 103921/FUL/21 - LANCASHIRE COUNTY CRICKET CLUB, BRIAN STATHAM WAY, STRETFORD
The Head of Planning and Development submitted a report concerning an application for planning permission for the demolition of Red Rose Suite and seating; replacement with new hotel extension building and grandstand with associated facilities including museum, retail and ticket sales space, spectator seating and facilities; extensions to the existing hotel including a link structure; realignment of Brian Statham Way and associated public realm and landscaping works.
RESOLVED: That Members are minded to grant planning permission for this development and that the determination of the application hereafter be delegated to the Head of Planning and Development as follows:
(i) To complete a suitable Legal Agreement under S106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) to secure £66,600 towards public realm works as part of the Strategic Processional Route.
(ii) To complete an appropriate Legal Agreement to modify and/or discharge the Section 106 Agreement dated 2nd December 2015 in respect of planning permission reference number 85781/FUL/15 in order to enable the contribution paid under that agreement of £44,878 (Strategic Processional Route Contribution) to be used in combination with the aforementioned £66,600 to deliver the Strategic Processional Route.
(iii) To carry out minor drafting amendments to any planning condition.
(iv) To have discretion to determine the application appropriately in the circumstances where a S106 Agreement and modification / discharge of the existing S106 associated with planning permission 85781/FUL/15 has not been completed within three months of the resolution to grant planning permission.
(v) That upon the satisfactory completion of the above Legal Agreement(s) that planning permission be granted subject to the conditions now determined (unless amended by (iii) above).
To consider the attached report.
A report was submitted advising Members of an Application made to the Secretary of State for Transport under S247 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 to stop up an area of highway in Partington to enable development to be carried out in accordance with planning permission granted under reference number 97897/FUL/19.
