Resolved: (Unanimous) That permission be granted subject to the following conditions:


1. The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of permission.

2. The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved drawings:-

278100 No. 10 Rev A;

278100 Drawing No. 22 Revision A;

278100 Drawing No. 23 Revision A;

278100 Drawing No. 25 Revision A;

278100 Drawing No. 26 Revision A;

278100 Drawing No. 27 Revision A.

3. All external materials shall be in accordance with the schedule of materials provided on approved drawings 278100 Drawing No. 26 Revision A and 278100 Drawing No. 27 Revision A.

4. Prior to the occupation of the development, details of hard and soft landscaping, to include defensible space for ground floor amenity areas, details of a covered and secure bin store and details of all balcony screening, shall be submitted to and approved by the Local Planning Authority.

5. Prior to the commencement of development, details of the proposed means of foul sewerage and surface water disposal shall be submitted to, and approved in writing, by the Local Planning Authority, in consultation with Southern Water.

6. Prior to the occupation of the development, the following matters relating to sustainable urban drainage shall be addressed:-

a. Detailed design of the permeable pavement which is proposed by the FRA shall be provided and, thereafter, implemented. If connection directly to the public sewer is proposed, surface water runoff should be limited to a rate agreed to by Southern Water for all rainfall events including those with a 1 in 100 (plus 40%) annual probability of occurrence. Hydraulic calculations should be submitted in support of the surface water drainage strategy together with evidence that Southern Water agrees to the proposed surface water discharge rate and connection.

b. If it is proposed to re-use existing connections, the condition of the existing surface water drain shall be investigated before discharge of surface water runoff from the development is made. Any required improvements to the condition of the surface water sewer shall be carried out prior to construction of the outfalls.

c. A maintenance and management plan for the entire drainage system shall be submitted to the planning. This plan shall clearly state who will be responsible for managing all aspects of the surface water drainage system, including piped drains, and the appropriate authority should be satisfied with the submitted details. Evidence that these responsibility arrangements will remain in place throughout the lifetime of the development shall be provided to the Local Planning Authority.

d. Evidence (including photographs) shall be submitted showing that the drainage system has been constructed as per the final agreed detailed drainage designs

7. The development permitted by this planning permission shall only be carried out in accordance with the approved Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) (v2, August 2018) and the following mitigation measures detailed within the FRA:

a. the cellar/basement level is to be filled in as part of the development, as stated in Paragraph 2.4, so it cannot be used for residential accommodation at any point in the future.

b. appropriate flood resistance and resilience measures are incorporated within the development, as detailed in Paragraph 8.1 and Appendix F, to help prevent flood water entering the property and limit the damage caused to the structure and fittings.

c. floor levels are to be raised at least 300mm above the existing ground level, set no lower than the 4.5mAOD suggested in Paragraphs 8.2 & 11.11 of the FRA to provide an additional margin of protection.

d. site owners/occupiers sign up to the Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Service, as detailed in Paragraph 9.10 of the FRA, in order for them to have sufficient time to evacuate the site in advance should it be required.

e. a site-specific Flood Emergency Evacuation Plan is implemented as part of the development, as stated in Paragraph 9.12 and outlined in Appendix G. This is because ground floor occupants have no access to safe refuge on site (Paragraph 9.11), thus require identification and provision of safe route(s) into and out of the site to an appropriate safe haven.

The mitigation measures shall be fully implemented prior to occupation and subsequently in accordance with the timing / phasing arrangements embodied within the scheme, or within any other period as may subsequently be agreed, in writing, by the local planning authority.

8. No part of the development shall be occupied until covered and secure cycle parking spaces have been provided in accordance with plans and details submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. The area[s] shall thereafter be retained for that use and shall not be used other than for the parking of cycles.

9. No development shall take place, including any ground works or works of demolition, until a Construction Management Plan has been submitted to and approved in writing by the Local Planning Authority. Thereafter the approved Plan shall be implemented and adhered to in full throughout the entire construction period. The Plan shall provide details as appropriate but not be restricted to the following matters,

a. the anticipated number, frequency and types of vehicles used during construction,

b. the method of access and egress and routeing of vehicles during construction,

c. the parking of vehicles by site operatives and visitors,

d. the loading and unloading of plant, materials and waste,

e. the storage of plant and materials used in construction of the development,

f. the erection and maintenance of security hoarding,

g. the provision and utilisation of wheel washing facilities and other works required to mitigate the impact of construction upon the public highway (including the provision of temporary Traffic Regulation Orders),

h. details of public engagement both prior to and during construction works.
