Erection of 37 Supported Living Apartments with ancillary cafe (1no. part single, part two and part three storey block of 31 apartments and 1no. two storey) block of six apartments on land adjacent to the Ladybarn, Harbour Lane, Milnrow pdf icon PDF 409 KB

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    The Director of Economy presented an updated report that detailed planning application 17/00891/FUL for the erection of 37 Supported Living Apartments with ancillary cafe (1no. part single, part two and part three storey block of 31 apartments and 1no. two storey block of six apartments on land adjacent to the Ladybarn, Harbour Lane, Milnrow.

     

    The Director of Economy submitted an Update Report.. This summarised that an additional consultation response had been received from Transport for Greater Manchester with a request that the development be insulated against noise and vibration from the adjacent Metrolink line.  An additional condition was therefore proposed by the Planning officer requesting that a scheme to acoustically insulate the proposed development against noise and vibration from the adjacent Metrolink line be submitted.

     

    The Planning Officer reported upon five additional letters of objection that had been received. Five additional letters of objection have been received from residents that had provided previous objections to the application and their most recent concerns that raised additional issues over and above those noted in the report were summarised in the Update Report.

     

    The Committee considered the views of Mr N. Cunliffe of Bramhall Close who addressed the Committee on behalf of local residents objecting to the application.

     

    The Committee considered the views of Ms. D. Smith and Ms. P. Rainey the agents for the applicant who addressed the Committee in relation to the application.

     

    The Committee considered the views of Councillor Butterworth who addressed the Committee objecting to the application (after which he left the room).

     

    The Committee considered the views of Councillor Kelly that were submitted via a letter that was read out at the meeting, objecting to the application.

     

    Decision:

    That the application be approved subject to the conditions detailed in the submitted report and the Update Report.

     

    Reason for the decision:

    The proposed development would provide 37 supported living apartments and an ancillary café in a sustainable location within the existing urban area and on a site where a previous application for residential development has been approved. The development would make a significant contribution to the supply of housing in a sustainable location, as well as valuable supported living accommodation. The access arrangements are acceptable and the provision of parking is also acceptable for the uses. The development accords with the development plan and amendments have been secured to ensure the scale, design and layout of the development is acceptable in the context of the local area. The impacts of the development can be appropriately mitigated through conditions and the proposal therefore comprises sustainable development.
