Disclosure of Interest

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. Completed disclosure forms will be provided to the Monitoring Officer for inclusion on the Register of Members’ Interests.



There were no disclosures of a pecuniary interest not already registered.


Urgent Business (if any)

To receive notice of any business not on the agenda which in the opinion of the Chair, by reason of special circumstances, be considered as a matter of urgency.

Ward: Coulsdon Town


The officers presented details of the planning application and responded to questions for clarification.


Ms Maureen Levy and Mr Walter Boyle representing East Coulsdon Residents Association, spoke against the application.


Mr Andy Stehrenberger the Applicant’s Agent spoke in support of the application.


Councillor Letts proposed a motion to REFUSE the application on the grounds of the proposed building being built on a triangular site which is an over development for the quantum of development proposed, harm to travel for the pedestrians and insufficient information for the potential harm. Councillor Parker seconded the motion.


The motion of refusal was put forward to the vote and was carried with all five Members unanimously voting in favour.


The Committee therefore RESOLVED to GRANT the application for the development of Land Rear of 8A to 12A Reddown Road, Coulsdon, CR5 1AX.
