PLANNING PROTOCOL

The Planning Committee abides by the Council’s Planning Protocol 2017.  A factsheet covering some of the key points within the protocol as well as some of the context for Haringey’s planning process is provided alongside the agenda pack available to the public at each meeting as well as on the Haringey Planning Committee webpage.

 

The planning system manages the use and development of land and buildings.  The overall aim of the system is to ensure a balance between enabling development to take place and conserving and protecting the environment and local amenities.  Planning can also help tackle climate change and overall seeks to create better public places for people to live, work and play.  It is important that the public understand that the committee makes planning decisions in this context.  These decisions are rarely simple and often involve balancing competing priorities.  Councillors and officers have a duty to ensure that the public are consulted, involved and where possible, understand the decisions being made.

 

Neither the number of objectors or supporters nor the extent of their opposition or support are of themselves material planning considerations.

 

The Planning Committee is held as a meeting in public and not a public meeting.  The right to speak from the floor is agreed beforehand in consultation with officers and the Chair.  Any interruptions from the public may mean that the Chamber needs to be cleared.

Crawley Road - Pre-application Briefing pdf icon PDF 693 KB

Proposal: Demolition of the existing taxi/vehicle repair centre and erection of 29 dwellings (ten houses and 19 flats) in development up to four storeys in height, provision of 18 car parking spaces and creation of cycle/pedestrian mews and green link connecting Crawley Road with Downhills Way and Lordship Rec.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Planning Officer and representatives for the applicant gave a short presentation on early plans for the scheme.  This was in the late pre-application stage, and a consultation was due to be carried out with the local community in the next week.  The site formed the central part of site allocation SA60, and part of the submission would include the masterplan to show that future developments in the north and south would not be compromised by this application.  Majority of the blocks were three storeys, and where the height increased to four storeys, the open end of the site was utilised to minimise the impact on surrounding residential properties.

 

Officers and the Applicant responded to questions from the Committee:

-           The amount of affordable housing available on the development had not yet been submitted.  Viability assessments were looking likely to produce a maximum viability of 10%, however if Block A were to be used it could be possible to increase viability to 24%.  The requirement to keep a public link through the site would have an effect on viability.

-           The development had been assessed as PTAL1, and the proposed parking provision was considered adequate.  The garages in the houses would be 6m by 3m, which would fit most cars and have some room for storage.

-           A new QRP report had been produced, and the applicant’s had addressed the previous issues raised.

 

The Chair thanked all for attending.
