Decision:

RESOLVED: That the application was approved, subject to amendments to conditions.

Minutes:

The demolition of the existing building and the erection of a four-storey hotel (Class C1), including ancillary restaurant / café / bar and associated car parking, servicing and landscaping and the provision of pedestrian access to Odyssey Business Park.

 

Officers introduced the application, which sought to demolition the existing, vacant Eagle House office building and erect a 79-bedroom hotel with a restaurant, car parking, landscaping and associated facilities, and noted the addendum, which sought amendments to Conditions 6, 11, 17 and 23.

 

Responding to the Committee’s questioning, officers confirmed that swept path drawings have shown that a large vehicle can enter and leave the site in forward gear, including refuse vehicles.

 

Members noted that 10% of car parking spaces should be served by electrical charging points, instead of 5%, and agreed to give delegated authority to the Head of Planning, Transportation and Regeneration to ensure this.

 

Officers clarified that the application included a green roof, and noted that there were no objections subject to a bird hazard management scheme, while it was ensured that the landscaping plan included no more than 10% of berry bearing species.

 

Councillors commented that the hotel was under flight paths from the airport, and the officers confirmed that this was the case, but the Ministry of Defence did not raise any objections to the application.

 

The Committee expressed a desire to maximise pollution reduction with planting and it was agreed that Condition 6.1c would be strengthened to ensure this.

 

Responding to questioning, officers confirmed that there was a five-year maintenance schedule regarding the application, and Councillors agreed to delegate authority to the Head of Planning, Transportation and Recycling to ensure the maintenance of the living roof. Members also expressed concern regarding pedestrian access from the business park to the site, and it was agreed to change Condition 19 to reflect the “whole site”. 

 

The officer’s recommendation, subject to delegated authority to the Head of Planning, Transportation and Regeneration to ensure the enhancement of Conditions 6.1c and 19, the amendment of Condition 6 regarding the living roof, and the amendment of Condition 12 to ensure the Council can enforce it, was then moved, seconded and put to a vote.

 

The recommendation was moved, with seven Councillors voting in favour, and one Councillor abstaining.

 

RESOLVED: That the application be approved, subject to delegated authority to the Head of Planning, Transportation and Recycling to:

 

1.    Enhance Condition 6.1c to maximise pollution reduction through landscaping;

 

2.    Enhance Condition 19 to include the wording “whole site”;

 

3.    Amend Condition 6 to include maintenance of the living roof; and,

 

4.    Amend the wording of Condition 12 to ensure the language is enforceable by the Council.
