Modification of planning obligations (Community Building) contained in a Section 106 Agreement dated 21 October 2014 pursuant to outline planning permission S/0623/13/FL

Decision:

By six votes to three, the Planning Committee refused the application contrary to the recommendation in the report from the Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development. Members agreed that the proposed variation to the Legal Agreement under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 would fail to secure the delivery of the community building in a timely manner, resulting in up to 40 dwellings being occupied without adequate community provision. Consequently the proposal would be contrary to Policy H/4 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018, which requires redevelopment of Papworth Everard West Central to secure a mix of community, employment and housing uses; and Policies SC/4 and SC/6 which require all housing developments to contribute towards the provision of indoor community facilities to meet the need generated by the development.

 

(Councillors Hawkins, Heylings, Rippeth, Roberts, Heather Williams and Wright voted to refuse the application. Councillors Bradnam, Cahn and Fane voted to approve it. Councillors Henry Batchelor and Richard Williams were not present and did not vote.)
