PE/00064/19 - CORAL CAR PARK, LONDON ROAD, ROMFORD pdf icon PDF 194 KB

Report attached

Minutes:

The Committee received a developer presentation from Freddie Heaf of BUJ Architects.

 

The proposal before Members was for residential development of 88 units with associated parking and amenity space.

 

The proposal was being presented for the second time following its initial presentation at the 27 June 2019 meeting. In response to comments made during that meeting there had been subsequent changes made to the scheme. The purpose of the second presentation was for the developer to explain the latest proposals; the amendments made and enable Members to make further comments prior to the submission of a planning application.

 

The main issues raised by Members for further consideration prior to submission of a planning application were:

 

·       The proposed proportion of family sized units still fell short of the draft Local Plan requirements

·       Important that there was an effective traffic management plan in place in regard to how spaces would be allocated and parking controls enforced. Parking spaces should be prioritised (i.e. allocated or offered first to the family sized units no matter what their tenure)

·       There appeared to be no provision for visitor parking

·       The applicant should approach the Council so they had the first opportunity to take on the affordable units rather than a housing association
