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 - Next to Londis, Plimley Place - as he was the Cabinet Member for Environment with responsibility for the site. He remained in the meeting and voted on the item.

Minutes:

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

 

One planning  application and one listed building consent application for the Hammersmith Town Hall were listed on the agenda. For ease of presentation, the Chair confirmed that one combined officer presentation would be provided to Committee and following debate, two separate and distinct votes would be taken on applications: 2018/01500/FUL and 2018/01501/LBC.

 

The Committee heard three representations in support of the application from: the Chair of Hammersmith and Fulham Disability Forum Planning Group, speaking on behalf of the Disabled Residents Team, the Town Hall Commission and the Applicant. A number of points were raised and included:

 

  • The proposal had been developed in co-production with disabled residents and would provide a high quality environment for disabled and impaired members of the community.
  • The Disabled Residents Team had worked with the Access consultants to ensure the proposal was a building everyone could use and enjoy.
  • The proposal would provide a safe and secure environment for all users.
  • The proposal would result in the provision of an inclusive environment, providing 10% of all units as wheelchair units with strong lift access to all upper levels within the development.
  • The West King Street Renewal would provide a civic and residential mixed-use redevelopment of the site.
  • The proposal would contribute to the local and wider London economy.
  • The proposal would help to regenerate the wider Hammersmith Town Centre Regeneration Area whilst delivering a quantum of affordable housing, in excess of the policy requirement of 50%.
  • The proposal had incorporated widespread public consultation and public involvement, including public meetings, amenity groups and local residents.
  • The Town Hall extension had blighted King Street and the new design concept delivered a proposal of high architectural quality and high quality public realm.  This would enhance and preserve the character and appearance of the conservation area and listed building.
  • The applicant had worked in partnership with Historic England to achieve an acceptable design.
  • The proposed development would deliver 204 dwelling units (Class C3), retail (Class A), restaurant/café (Class A3), cinema (Class D2) and Office space (Class B1), as well as enterprise units.

 

The Chair highlighted that one late objection had been received by email. These comments had been received and understood and related mainly to design matters.

 

During the course of discussions, the committee raised a number of points. These included:

  • The committee commended the community engagement and working with residents which had been undertaken during the development of the proposal.
  • The removal of the Town Hall extension and the improvements this would bring to King Street and the local area.
  • The scale / design of the Brie solei and the impact on wind noise.
  • The effects of the proposal on the micro-climate.
  • The overall accessibility of the proposal and the number of lifts which had been incorporated into the design.
  • The appearance of Block C, its visual amenity and the outlook implications of the design.

8 King's Quay Thames Avenue Chelsea Harbour London SW10 0UX - Sands End Ward - 2018/03508/FUL pdf icon PDF 66 KB

Minutes:

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

 

The Committee heard a representation in objection to the application from a local resident. Some of the points raised included: The proposal would adversely impact on the neighbouring amenity and the character of the roof line within the Chelsea Harbour Development. Further points included: the proposal would result in a loss of privacy and overlooking.

 

The Committee heard a representation in support of the application from a representative of the Applicant. Some of the points raised included: In 2018, planning permission was refused (2018/02688/FUL) for the erection of a roof extension with dormer window openings fronting northern, eastern and southern elevations, on the grounds of overlooking and loss of privacy to No.48 Thames Quay. The new proposal would overcome these grounds as the south facing window would be obscured to prevent overlooking. Further points included: the proposal complied with BRE guidance in relation to daylight and sunlight, the overall height of the proposal would not change, the proposal was not sited in a conservation area and would improve the quality of the residential unit, providing family sized accommodation.

 

During the course of discussions, the Committee explored a number of issues including the design principles and whether the design was in character with the area, as well as whether there might be added light pollution.
