Declaration of Interests

If a Councillor has a disclosable pecuniary interest in a particular item, whether or not it is entered in the Authority’s register of interests, or any other significant interest which they consider should be declared in the public interest, they should declare the existence and, unless it is a sensitive interest as defined in the Member Code of Conduct, the nature of the interest at the commencement of the consideration of that item or as soon as it becomes apparent.

 

At meetings where members of the public are allowed to be in attendance and speak, any Councillor with a disclosable pecuniary interest or other significant interest may also make representations, give evidence or answer questions about the matter.  The Councillor must then withdraw immediately from the meeting before the matter is discussed and any vote taken.

 

Where Members of the public are not allowed to be in attendance and speak, then the Councillor with a disclosable pecuniary interest should withdraw from the meeting whilst the matter is under consideration. Councillors who have declared other significant interests should also withdraw from the meeting if they consider their continued participation in the matter would not be reasonable in the circumstances and may give rise to a perception of a conflict of interest.

 

Councillors are not obliged to withdraw from the meeting where a dispensation to that effect has been obtained from the Audit, Pensions and Standards Committee.

Councillor Lucy Ivimy declared a non- pecuniary interest in respect of 101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches as she knew a number of the objectors and had met with local residents. She remained in the meeting, participated and voted on the item.

101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches, Ravenscourt Place, London W6 0UQ, Ravenscourt Park 2017/03835/FUL

Minutes:

Please see the Addendum attached to the minutes which made minor changes to the report.

 

Councillor Alex Karmel declared a non-pecuniary interest in respect of 101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches as he had friends which lived on Ravenscourt Road. He had not discussed the application with them. He remained in the meeting, participated and voted on the item.

 

Councillor Lucy Ivimy declared a non- pecuniary interest in respect of 101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches as she knew a number of the objectors and had met with local residents. She remained in the meeting, participated and voted on the item.

 

Councillor Jacqueline Borland declared a non- pecuniary interest in respect of 101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches as she knew a number of the objectors but had not discussed the application. She remained in the meeting, participated and voted on the item.

 

Councillor Viya Nsumbu declared a non- pecuniary interest in respect of 101 And 105 - 107 Stamford Brook Arches as she knew a number of the objectors but had not discussed the application. She remained in the meeting, participated and voted on the item.

 

The Committee heard a representation in objection to the application from a local resident. Some of the points raised included: the officer report did not reflect the position of the objectors fairly and the conditions within the report were not specific enough to be enforceable. Residents disagreed that the location was suitable for a sporting facility. Factors such as increased footfall, privacy / overlooking and traffic impacts had not been properly considered. Residents felt the proposed entrance on the cul de sac on Ravenscourt Place would be detrimental as it would cause, noise, nuisance and disturbance. The proposal was located in a conservation area and data provided by the Applicant in support of the proposal, was flawed, as the Vauxhall Bridge location was dissimilar to the proposed residential location.

 

The Committee heard a representation in support of the application by the Applicant. Some of the points raised included: Climbing was a benefit to people’s lives. No alcohol or anti-social behaviour would be generated by the application and members would only enter the site in small groups. As the proposal was situated  in close proximity to Ravenscourt Park Tube Station, the majority of members would use the public transport and so there would be minimal traffic impact. Climbing was not a noisy activity and loud music would not be played on the site. Every customer would provide full details on registration which would be held on a database. This would dissuade anti-social behaviour. The proposal incorporated comprehensive CCTV coverage of all access and egress points.

 

Councillor Harry Phibbs spoke as ward Councillor for Ravenscourt Park. Some of the points raised included: the Committee had a responsibility to consider whether or not an application would enhance or preserve the conservation area. The suitability of the proposed location was questionable and was very different to the Applicants’ business at Vauxhall  ...  view the full minutes text for item 50.
