Application No. 2021/0238 - 19 Thackerays Lane, Woodthorpe pdf icon PDF 519 KB

Minutes:

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the report.  He advised members that further to the publication of the report a late objection had been received from a neighbouring resident in relation to concerns around parents parking on the footpath, vehicles facing oncoming traffic and parents not utilising the nearby pedestrian crossing.  However, these concerns raised no new issues and were covered within the main report.

The Principal Planning Officer added that additional comments had been sought from the Highways Authority in relation to parking and gave the following update:

Parking could not be formalised on the footway outside the site, as parking in that location would be illegal and a matter for the Police Authority.  Parking on the highway was allowed, but they would not wish to have designated parking bays outside the facility as the highway itself was available for the public and all users. There was a car park further down Thackeray’s Lane and on street parking within the area. They accepted that Thackeray’s Lane was a busy road, and at times traffic was heavy, but they had not received any recent parking complaints or reports of severe congestion in the area and therefore they had no concerns in relation to the scheme.

Application No. 2021/0737 - 96 Plains Road, Mapperley pdf icon PDF 468 KB

Minutes:

Erection of 9 dwellings.

 

The Principal Planning Officer introduced the report, which identified that a contribution of £17,635 was targeted to be spent at the park on the corner of Bailey Drive and Plains Road.  He added that as this area of public open space remained under the control of a private company, that rather than explicitly identifying that the money would be spent on this park, as it might not be possible to reach agreement with the site owner, it was requested that the wording of the legal agreement identified that the money be spent in the locality, in accordance with the Open Space Supplementary Planning Document. 

 

RESOLVED:

 

To Grant Planning Permission: Subject to the owner(s) entering into planning obligations with the Borough Council as Local Planning Authority for a financial contribution towards off-site public open space and the provision of a management company for maintenance of access roads and areas of on-site open space not within the curtilages; and subject to the conditions listed for the reasons set out in the report:
