Decision Maker: Housing Committee

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Housing Committee

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021

Decision:

The Committee reviewed one of three options for the HRA owned site at 51 Ilkeston Road, Bramcote (also known as Fishpond Cottage).

 

An extensive consultation exercise was undertaken in late 2020 on a proposal to build 9 new homes including the demolition of the cottage.  Following comments received from the consultation exercise, the layout plans and the initial proposal to demolish the cottage were revised.   A planning application was submitted in February 2021 which kept the cottage and proposed 5 new build homes on the site consisting of 2 houses, 2 flats and an adapted ‘wheelchair’ house.        

 

The planning application was approved by planning committee in June 2021.  Ward members have subsequently approached the Council seeking revisions to the approved scheme due to the level of objections received from the local community. 

 

An amendment to recommendation option 3, for a new application to be submitted for 2 adapted houses and 1 adapted bungalow was proposed by Councillor S Carr and seconded by Councillor  Land. A recorded vote was proposed Councillor Carr and seconded by Councillor Land.

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021


17/11/2021 - EXCLUSION OF PUBLIC AND PRESS ref: 1087    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Housing Committee

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Housing Committee

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021

Decision:

RESOLVED that, under Section 100A of the Local Government Act, 1972, the public and press be excluded from the meeting for the following item of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 of Schedule 12A of the Act.


17/11/2021 - GENERAL NEEDS -COMMUNAL AREAS ref: 1083    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Housing Committee

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Housing Committee

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021

Decision:

Members considered the proposal to introduce new services for communal areas, including block cleaning and window cleaning.

 

Currently General Needs tenants were not charged for services provided, such as grounds maintenance and communal lighting. These are paid from the Housing Revenue Account (HRA). There are also services which were not currently provided, which many landlords would routinely provide. This includes block cleaning and window cleaning. Currently tenants were jointly responsible for cleaning communal areas on their schemes. This leads to variations on the standard of the blocks and an unfair expectation on tenants.

 

All services that are proposed as part of the service charge will be eligible for Housing Benefit and the rent element of Universal Credit.

 

RESOLVED that communal block and window cleaning is introduced in General Needs Accommodation.

 

Councillors D Grindell, E Kerry, H Khaled MBE J W McGrath, J M Owen, P J Owen, J P T Parker, D Pringle and C Tideswell wished to have their votes of abstention recorded.


17/11/2021 - DECANT POLICY ref: 1080    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Housing Committee

Made at meeting: 17/11/2021 - Housing Committee

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021

Decision:

The Committee considered the Decant Policy.

 

The Council makes all reasonable attempts to allow tenants to remain in their homes while repairs or routine maintenance takes place in properties.  On rare occasions, it is not possible and it is necessary to move tenants out of their properties, usually temporarily, while necessary repairs or maintenance takes place.

 

The Council aims to avoid tenants from incurring unnecessary household costs as a result of decants and the policy details the assistance that the Council was able to provide in accordance with its statutory responsibilities.

 

RESOLVED that the amended Decant Policy be approved.

Decision published: 03/12/2021

Effective from: 17/11/2021

Effective from: 03/11/2021

Decision:

Change of use of the existing residential property (Class C3) to a seven bedroomed House in Multiple Occupation

150 Queens Road, Beeston, Nottinghamshire, NG9 2FF

 

It was requested that this proposal be considered by Planning Committee by Councillor L A Lally. 

 

There were no late items for the Committee to note.

 

Councillor P Lally, Ward Member addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

The Committee considered the application with particular reference to neighbour amenity negative impact on the community, increased traffic and impact on car parking.

 

RESOLVED that planning permission be refused, with the precise wording of the refusal to be delegated to the Chair of Planning Committee in agreement with the Head of Planning and Economic Development.

 

Refusal wording

 

The change of use would lead to an intensification of the site due to the number of residents occupying the dwelling which would have a detrimental impact on surrounding neighbours, the character of the area and result in parking problems. 

 

Reason

 

This would be contrary to the aims of Policy 17 of the Part 2 Local Plan (2019) and Policy 10 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core (2014) and the NPPF (2021).


03/11/2021 - 20/00687/FUL ref: 1064    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Planning Committee

Made at meeting: 03/11/2021 - Planning Committee

Decision published: 01/12/2021

Effective from: 03/11/2021

Decision:

Construct 22 dwellings

Land south of 50 Pinfold Road, Newthorpe, Nottinghamshire, NG16 2FT

 

This application was called before Committee by Councillor M Handley.

 

The Committee considered the late item comprised of an email regarding flooding.

 

Keith Baker, objecting and Clive Bennetts, objecting, addressed the Committee prior to the general debate.

 

The Committee gave consideration to all representations and the debate that followed focused on the increase in the existing planning permission for 15 dwelling to 22 in the proposal being too much for the site.  There was also concern regarding the impact on neighbour amenity on Baldwin Street as these properties were bungalows.

 

The debate progressed to the concerns raised by the highway authority regarding the roads on the development not be of a standard to be adopted.  There was a discussion about the safety of pedestrians, the installation and maintenance of street lighting and the issues with management companies.  There were also concerns about the layout of the proposed development.

 

RESOLVED, unanimously, that planning permission be refused, with the precise wording of the refusal to be delegated to the Chair of Planning Committee in agreement with the Head of Planning and Economic Development.

 

Refusal wording

 

The proposal constitutes an over intensive development of the site and by virtue of the close proximity and single storey nature of the dwellings located on Baldwin Street, the proposal would lead to overbearing, overshadowing and overlooking issues upon the immediate neighbouring properties located on Baldwin Street, to the detriment of their residential amenity. Furthermore, due to the internal roads being private, the proposed development would have a detrimental impact upon the residential amenity of future occupiers of the proposed dwelling through future maintenance of the roads.

 

Reasons

         

Accordingly, the proposal is contrary to the aims of Policy 10 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (2014) and Policy 17 of the Part 2 Local Plan (2019), and there are no other material considerations that justify treating this proposal as an exception to these policies.

It was proposed by Councillor T Hallam and seconded by Councillor L A Lally that a vote of thanks be given to the COVID-19 Marshals.  On being put to the meeting the motion was carried.

 

The debate continued to include the suggestions of free parking, reservations regarding encouraging gatherings of people, the establishment of a COVID-19 accreditation scheme and the provision of more welcoming signage in town centres. 

 

The Committee noted that the Welcome Back Fund had to be spent on high street businesses and that the purpose of it was to attract visitors to town centres.  It was further stated that events that had been cancelled because of the pandemic could not be supported by the fund, which was for new, one off events that would not normally happen. 

 

RESOLVED that a vote of thanks be given to the COVID-19 Marshals in recognition of their hard work and dedication.

Effective from: 10/06/2021

Decision:

The Committee considered the update on the Eastwood Jobs Club and the potential for holding other jobs clubs in the Borough.
