By affirmation, the Committee authorised officers to vary the Legal Agreement

under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 to revise

triggers ensuring delivery of the re-prioritised infrastructure set out at

Appendix 2 to the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic

Development and that the proposed elements thus falling outside

the cost cap would need to be delivered through alternative funding. The

Committee also varied the Section 106 Agreement to reflect the approved

delivery strategy, specifically:


·       Revision of Part 8 Clause 1.1(a) to deliver the Western Sports Hub reverting from 2,000 dwellings across Phase 1 and Phase 2 to 3,300 dwellings across Phase 2. This would deliver this element in accordance with the approved Phase 2 Phasing Strategy.


·       Revision of Part 8 Clause 1.2 The trigger for the town park to 1,500 dwellings across Phase 2. The play equipment within the town park would be delivered and be available for use by residents at the existing trigger. It would also be necessary to ensure that any damage to the play equipment be kept under review during the construction process and appropriate maintenance be undertaken as appropriate. This is in accordance with the Healthy Living Youth and Play Strategy.


·       Payment of about £3.2 million (with indexation) being brought forward from 2,500 dwellings across Phases 1 and 2 to 450 occupations within Phase 2 so that this reflects the delivery and completion of the Education Campus.
