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.
There were no declarations of interest.
3i Olympia Multistorey Car Park Maclise Road, Avonmore And Brook
Please see the Addendum attached to the minutes which made minor changes to the report.
Officers provided a joint presentation which covered both applications.
The Committee heard a representation in support of the application from the applicant. Some of the points raised included: The proposal would provide an innovative dining experience, with three restaurants providing fresh and seasonal cuisine. The application was for a temporary use of the site for a few years. The concept was proven, as successful restaurants had been run in the past at the former BBC site and in West Brompton. These applications had not caused concern and had been granted under delegated authority. Background music only would be played at the site.
Referring to the foot of page 1 of the Addendum, Councillor Karmel proposed that ‘Page 7 – Delete condition 23’ be deleted and replaced with ‘delete condition 7’. This was seconded by the Committee.
During the course of discussions, the Committee explored a number of issues which included whether Historic England had commented on the application, refuse storage, waste collections and the potential for noise nuisance. Further topics included the impact on existing car parking arrangements, local parking stress and how the proposed smoking area might impact on local residents. Officers confirmed that the venue had a 500-person capacity and it was anticipated that patrons would come and go throughout the day, thereby ensuring 500 persons would not leave the site at once.
The Committee voted on application 2018/00745/FULand whether to agree the officer recommendations set out in the report and amendment to the addendum. This was put to the vote and the result was as follows:

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: The homeowner had lived at the property for 30 years and over that time had spent a considerable sum maintaining the tree. The tree was now causing severe structural damage to her property. A survey report commissioned by the homeowner had not been included in the officer report despite the assurances of her ward Councillor. The tree was diseased before the TPO status was awarded to the tree which had been omitted from the officer report. The tree was causing overshadowing and denying close neighbours right to ... view the full minutes text for item 87.
