Planning Application 2023/0468

Additional documents:


Modification of the Fourth Schedule of the Section 106 Agreement at Chase Farm (2015/1376) in respect of the Primary School Contribution and Primary School Site.


Stephen Pointer – Team Manager of Planning Policy and Mike Sharpe – Team Manager, Strategic Pupil Place Planning of Nottingham County Council, the applicant, spoke in support of the application.


The Principal Planning Officer summarised the points raised by Members in an email from Councillor Payne and informed the committee that a petition signed by 121 people who were objecting to the application, had been received.


He then went on to introduce the report.


He concluded that, taking into consideration the matters raised by the previous speakers, it was still considered that it had been demonstrated the school would not serve a useful purpose given that there was capacity in nearby schools and therefore it was recommended that the application be granted permission with a Deed of Variation entered into to permit the reallocation of the money towards expanding the secondary school provision and for the provision of a new pedestrian crossing, as detailed in the committee report.


The Legal Officer set out the legal framework for the decision.


Councillor Catherine Pope, seconded by Councillor Grahame Pope, proposed a recommendation that the item be deferred to a future meeting until the committee had received more information and a more detailed response from Nottinghamshire County Council officers in relation to the points raised in the objection councillors had received by email.
