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. 

Minutes:

Councillor Wesley Harcourt declared a non-pecuniary interest in respect of Land Adjacent to 25-30 Talina Centre as he was the Cabinet Member for Environment with responsibility for the site. He remained in the meeting but did not vote on the item.

 

Councillor Alex Karmel declared a non-pecuniary interest in respect of Southern Bell, 175 - 177 Fulham Palace Road as this site is opposite the Hammersmith Conservative Association Offices. He remained in the meeting but did not vote on the item.

 

Councillor Rachel Leighton declared a non-pecuniary interest in respect of Southern Bell, 175 - 177 Fulham Palace Road as she is a member of the Hammersmith Labour Party which has offices on Greyhound Road. She remained in the meeting and voted on the item.

The Committee heard a representation in support of the application from the Applicant. Some of the points raised included: The site would deliver a total of 415 new homes, 35% of which would be affordable housing by habitable room and by unit (146 new homes/383 habitable rooms).The site would provide new public realm and open space, alongside a children’s playspace.The proposal would provide an opportunity for multiple economic and employment benefits to Hammersmith and Fulham not only during the construction process, but also in the future through the provision of jobs, homes, and contributions to the community. The creation of new pedestrian links from Imperial Wharf Station to the site and through to the Fulham Gasworks site, would significantly enhance local connectivity and ensure access to the new public amenities created by both developments.

 

During discussions the Committee explored a number of issues, including the height of the tower block, the impact on the nearby conservation area and the density of the proposal. Further issues which were discussed included: the impact the proposal might have on local infrastructure, the effects of the construction phases to local residents and highways implications. Cllr Uberoi requested officers to provide a briefing note on the TRICS system and for this to circulated outside the Committee meeting.
