Former Nestle Factory Nestles Avenue (Canteen Building) - 1331/APP/2021/891 pdf icon PDF 680 KB

Temporary roofing cover and associated works to the Canteen Building for a period of 24 months

 

Recommendations: Approval

Decision:

RESOLVED:  That the application be approved.

Minutes:

Officers introduced the application for installation of a temporary roofing cover and associated works to the Canteen Building, for a period of 24 months, as part of the wider Nestle Factory site. It was considered that the proposed development would benefit the listed building until a permanent roof solution was established, and the application was therefore recommended for approval.

 

In response to queries from the Committee, officers confirmed that the use of asbestos and other materials was covered by informative 6, while the original permission on the site mandated that the site is to be used for community use only, and this application was not seeking to change the use of the building. Guttering was confirmed to be external, and the temporary guttering design would revert to a permanent heritage style following the 24-month temporary period.

 

The officer’s recommendation was moved, seconded, and when put to a vote, unanimously agreed.

 

RESOLVED:  That the application be approved.
