Attention was drawn to additional information which had been published in Supplement 3 to the agenda, which detailed the response of the Environmental Health Noise Officer in relation to the requirement and position of the noise barrier.

 

The Planning Team Leader, Adam Madge, presented the application which was for Demolition of existing building with retention of existing façade with minor modifications and use of land as a hospitality area (Description revised following changes to the proposed frontage – previously “Demolition of existing building, erection of gates and railings as modification to front facade to facilitate use of land as a hospitality”). The application had been deferred at the last meeting to allow discussions to take place and a plan for a noise barrier to be formed.

 

The main issues which had been considered to be material in the determination of this application were listed as demolition of the existing building and impact on the Conservation Area, Principle of the proposed use, Impact on residential amenity and noise/disturbance.

 

Officer recommendation was for a noise barrier in a set location, of at least 4m in height.

 

Members then had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the officer, where it was clarified that the final specifications of the barrier were not yet determined, however a condition was suggested that approval of materials was delegated to Officers prior to the installation of the barrier. The noise barrier would also need to comply with any conditions relating to the conservation area.

 

Members of the public as detailed above, then had the opportunity to speak on the application.

 

Some of the main points in objection included that the closest dwelling was 35 yards. The application had been opposed as it was felt there would be inadequate noise protection, however since the last meeting there had been discussions between the residents, the applicant and the Council to remedy the noise concerns.

 

Haze McKenzie were appointed to assess the site and had suggested a noise barrier be erected and noise be restricted to 65dbs.

 

Residents agreed with the barrier, however felt this should be a minimum of 5m in height and be in place by spring of 2022.

Some of the main points of those in support included that a Noise Consultant had been contracted to advise on a solution. Discussions with resident and the council had been held to find a solution as it was important to the applicant to work with her neighbours.

 

The applicant was supported by the city council ward councillor who spoke in support, noting that the applicant was known for her good work in the community.

 

Local Member Cllr Sample who was not on the Committee, spoke to the application, noting that the identified gap had been acting as a funnel and that there had been local concern from local charter court residents. Thanks to the committee for deferring to allow time for this to be resolved by the two parties.

 

Following advice the applicant had come forward with a plan to implement a noise barrier. He asked on behalf of the residents that the Committee increased the barrier to the 5m requested by the residents.

 

Cllr Hocking then moved the motion of approval in line with Officer recommendation, but with a minimum of 5m height and a maximum limit of 65dbs.

 

This was seconded by Cllr Jeans.

 

The Committee was invited to discuss the application, the main points included that it was good that a solution had been reached.

 

The Committee then voted on the motion of approval in line with Officer

recommendation with the added height of 5m and max noise level of 65dbs.

 

It was:
