In accordance with the Council’s Code of Conduct and the statutory provisions of the Localism Act, Members and co-opted Members of the Council are reminded that it is a requirement to register disclosable pecuniary interests (DPIs) and gifts and hospitality to the value of which exceeds £50 or multiple gifts and/or instances of hospitality with a cumulative value of £50 or more when received from a single donor within a rolling twelve month period. In addition, Members and co-opted Members are reminded that unless their disclosable pecuniary interest is registered on the register of interests or is the subject of a pending notification to the Monitoring Officer, they are required to disclose those disclosable pecuniary interests at the meeting. This should be done by completing the Disclosure of Interest form and handing it to the Democratic Services representative at the start of the meeting. The Chair will then invite Members to make their disclosure orally at the commencement of Agenda item 3.

Ward: Purley

 

The main issues raised during the meeting were as follow:

 

§  There was positive feedback on the proposal from Members who noted this was developing well. Members liked the idea that the sites were to be used for units to revitalise the community. The idea of little parking space and provision for disabled and car pool parking spaces was well received.

 

§  Some Members raised the issue of additional height for sites A, B and C and addressed the issue about stepping down, subject to daylight and sunlight.

 

§  Members welcomed the 30% affordable housing scheme and highlighted that they would welcome more.

 

§  The masterplan to the site and duplex for the ground floor front doors to help break down the massing were welcomed by Members.

 

§  Members would like to see usable balconies and bamboo screens.

 

§  Members would like to see a building rhythm, looking at the height and massing and a distinct brickwork; also sound proofing for homes near the railway.

 

Ward Members Councillor Simon Hoar of Purley Oaks and Riddlesdown Ward and Councillor Simon Brew of Purley and Woodcote Ward shared their comments on the application.

 

The Chair thanked the applicants for their presentation. It was noted that the Committee looked forward to the application returning at a later stage.
