Members’ were reminded that this proposal had previously been before Committee. The revised proposed application was to knock down an existing dwelling and erect a block of nine flats, therefore the proposed scheme comprised of an additional flat.


Members’ raised the following points:


·         it was prudent that  a waste collection area was located at this development as this was an multitude of flats;

·         it was important that the condition with regards to the Waste Disposal Strategy was implemented as Members’ felt that this was a major issue around waste, in particular, for residents with multi-storey flats and to ensure a proper refuse collection arrangement was in place;

·         there would be more cars parking in spaces which could potentially affect the neighbouring residents.


In the ensuing debate, the Development Control Team Leader (South) provided the following responses:


·         Members noted that the first proposal was refused due to inadequate Waste Management Plan, however this had been introduced in the revised scheme.  Members’ were reinsured that in condition 8, it stated that no development should take place until Waste Management Strategy had been agreed;

·         Members were reminded that the previous scheme had been refused due to the proposal was deemed to be too close to the neighbouring properties.
