Minutes:

 (Proposed extension to existing car park to create additional capacity.)

 

(Mr K Bishop, Lead Development Manager, declared a schedule 2 interest as a Director of the Association and left the meeting for the duration of this item.)

 

(Councillor Polly Andrews fulfilled the role of local ward member and accordingly had no vote on this application.)

 

The Senior Planning Officer gave a presentation on the application, and updates/additional representations received following the publication of the agenda were provided in the update sheet, as appended to these minutes.

 

In accordance with the criteria for public speaking for virtual meetings, Mr A Darfi, the applicant, spoke in support of the application as a virtual attendee.

 

In accordance with the Council’s Constitution, the local ward member, Councillor Polly Andrews, spoke on the application.  In summary, she commented that the proposal would address a shortage of car parking spaces.  The Association served the whole County meaning provision had to be made for travel by car and minibus even if users within the City could access the site by foot or bicycle.  The current lack of parking space was causing inconvenience to nearby residents.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

The Committee discussed the application. A number of amended/additional conditions were proposed.

 

The local ward member was given the opportunity to close the debate.  She reiterated that there was county-wide use of the facility and the need for additional parking. She supported the additional/amended conditions.
