The Committee considered an application at Chave Croft, Broad Walk, Epsom Downs for the Demolition of existing building and redevelopment to provide a total of 23 homes with associated amenity space, landscaping, car and cycle parking. As amended on 31/03/2021, 12/04/2021 and on 12/05/2021.

 

Councillor Harrison, a visiting member, spoke in support of the application. A brief history of the site was given, and it was explained that latterly the site was used for temporary housing and there had been some issues of anti-social behaviour. The design was complex due to changing land levels, however following a site visit it was felt that this was a good design and overlooking would not be an issue. Following public consultation, there had been some amendments to the design. Condition 11 was referred to in respect of parking and the Housing Association had now met the Council’s parking standard. A solution had also been achieved regarding access for the refuse vehicle. The proposal provided much needed social housing.

 

RESOLVED that subject to completion of a Section 106 legal agreement, planning permission be GRANTED with conditions, as per the recommendation and addendum, and regarding Condition 11, the officer is asked to consult with Ward Members on details submitted and the additional informative to state:

 

The applicant is requested to consider further solutions to help address the on-street parking issues affecting the locality.
