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:

There were no declarations of interest.

Minutes:

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

 

The Committee heard one representation in support from the Applicant. A number of points were raised and included: Centre House was owned by Imperial College. The development sought to become the gateway to the new campus. The design had evolved over a number of years and a considerable amount of public consultation had been conducted. St James had undertaken additional sunlight and daylight tests to allay local residents’ concerns.

 

The proposal would provide 527 residential homes and a mix of private and affordable accommodation. This included 185 affordable homes which equated to 35% (by habitable rooms and homes). It was envisaged that the affordable units would provide affordable intermediate rent properties for employees/key workers of Imperial College.

 

The proposal incorporated the erection of two buildings with basement level, comprising 1 x part 11/ part 22 storey building and 1 x part 11/part 32 storey building with ancillary residential facilities, including flexible commercial, community and leisure floorspace. The design incorporated public realm, amenity space, landscaping, and other associated infrastructure works including creation of basement level access to the adjoining White City Living site and works to the site’s western boundary. The proposal would also create local employment opportunities.

 

During the course of discussions, the Committee explored a number of issues including eastern access to White City Station, piling, construction techniques and the effect this would have on Wood Lane residents. In addition, the Committee considered the height of the proposal and the daylight and sunlight implications, as well as  the views in and out of the area.

 

Further issues included the viability of the proposed commercial spaces, construction traffic, the design principles and nomination rights to the affordable properties. Finally, access to amenity space, disabled parking and the mix of residential properties was also considered.
