Minutes:

The Committee considered an application at Quarryside Business Park, Trowers Way in Redhill for the demolition of the existing buildings and erection of 83 dwellings together with open space, landscaping access and parking.

Mr Paul Whitehouse, a local resident and member of the Watercolour Residents’ Association, spoke in objection to the application on the grounds that the proposed development would cause harm to the amenity of local residents because it did not include the provision of a community use.

Mr Whitehouse also sought further conditions to the construction management plan and further engagement with the highways authority to mitigate the impact on local residents during construction.

Mr Philip Allin, the applicant’s agent, spoke in support of the application on the grounds that the proposed development would – by virtue of the form, scale and layout, complement the character of the area; contribute towards the housing requirement in the area; meet the parking standards within the Council’s Development Management Plan (DMP); and, provide a new area of community space within the ground floor Block A of The Kilns, in accordance with policy RED1 of the DMP.

Councillor J. Essex, a Ward Member for Redhill East, raised concerns regarding the lack of a community use within the proposed development in relation to its cumulative impact with the neighbouring Watercolour development.

A motion to defer the application was proposed and seconded and upon a vote the Committee RESOLVED that determination of the application be DEFERRED for Members to attend a site inspection accompanied by officers.
