Apologies for Absence


There were no apologies for absence.


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. 



Decision to re-order the agenda


In view of members of the public present for particular applications the Chair proposed that the agenda be re-ordered, with which the Committee agreed, and the minutes reflect the order of the meeting.

5i.        160-164 Hurlingham Road, London SW6 3NG, Parsons Green and Walham


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


The Committee heard representations in objection to the application from three local residents. Some of the points raised included: The bulk and height of the proposal would be detrimental to the visual amenity of local residents. The proposal would significantly increase footfall, noise, and disturbance. The suggestion in the report that the proposal would bring an additional 300 jobs to the local area (based on square footage) was inaccurate. Residents had calculated that more than 1,000 people would use the site. The proposal offered a vast amount of office space which was excessive for the local area. It would add to parking stress locally and increased congestion from commuters and deliveries to the site. The proposal was in a conservation area and the vistas in and out of the area were significant. If the proposal were approved, it would be detrimental to the current views.


The Committee heard representations against the application from Councillor Mark Loveday, Ward Councillor for Parsons Green and Walham.


During the course of discussions, the Committee explored a number of issues including the existing traffic conditions and adverse impact the proposal would have. The number of deliveries which were anticipated to the site. Further topics included the height and massing of the proposal and it not being in keeping with other  two storey applications, the discordant design, street trees and its residential setting.  


The Committee voted on application 2018/01638/FUL and whether to agree the officer recommendation of approval and the changes set out in the addendum. This was put to the vote and the result was as follows:

198 North End Road, London W14 9NX, North End


Please see the Addendum attached to the minutes which amended the report.


The Committee heard representations in objection to the application from two local residents. Some of the points raised included: As well as the extraction duct, the applicant had installed two fans which had not been disclosed on the original application. The proposal would cause noise and nuisance and effect the residential amenity of close neighbours. The combination of the duct and fans ensured the proposal exceeded the background noise levels. Local residents had commissioned an independent noise survey to demonstrate the adverse impact of the proposal.
