Minutes:

The Committee considered an application at Quarryside Business Park, Trowers Way, Redhill for the demolition of existing buildings and erection of 83 dwellings together with open space landscaping access and parking. As amended on 23/01/2019, 28/03/2019, 21/05/2019, 07/06/2019, 01/08/2019, 01/10/2019 and on 21/11/2019 and on 23/12/2019.

 

Deanne Weaver, a local resident, spoke in objection to the application. They stated that whilst they appreciated that efforts had been made to improve the proposed development, it would exacerbate local issues with inadequate infrastructure, road safety and a shortage of parking. They therefore indicated that they considered that the proposed development would be detrimental to the local community.

 

Emanuele Mazzotta, a local resident, spoke in objection to the application. They stated that whilst they acknowledged that the application would need to be considered on its own merits, they considered that it would be right for the developer, having previously developed the nearby Watercolour development, to be considerate to the concerns of the local community. They drew attention to potential road safety measures, including one-way elements and speed limits and stated that residents should not lose access to existing parking during any construction process.

 

John Longhorn, representing the applicant, spoke in support of the application. He stated that work had been undertaken to address previously identified concerns with the application, including moving the play-space to be centrally located and changing the location of the incorporated community facility. He stated that a one-way traffic management plan would be in place to minimise the impact of construction.

 

It was supported that informative 18 in the addendum be amended to refer to ‘at the earliest opportunity before commencement of development’ and a further informative was supported stating that ‘The applicant is encouraged to install a safety barrier at the pedestrian route onto Canalside, to deter children from running into the road.’

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be GRANTED subject to conditions.
