    The Director of Economy introduced planning application 16/01383/HYBR, a Hybrid application comprising a comprehensive phased regeneration of Rochdale Town Centre East. A Detailed application for Phase One for erection of four commercial buildings and decked car park to provide retail, food and drink uses (Use Classes A1, A3 and A4, maximum 22,511 sq.m), cinema (Use Class D2, maximum 1,797 sq.m), gym (Use Class D2, maximum 2,018 sq.m) together with new service road and junction at John Street, ancillary uses, servicing and common areas, landscaping and infrastructure; and for B); and, an Outline application (all matters reserved) for Phase Two for erection of four buildings to provide retail, food and drink (Use Classes A1, A3, A4 and A5 maximum 1,000 sq.m), offices / commercial (Use Classes A2 and B1, maximum 4,000 sq.m), residential uses (Use Class C3, maximum 100 dwellings), hotel use (Use Class C1, maximum 120 bedrooms), and leisure (Use Class D1, maximum 500 sq.m) together with associated car parking, ancillary uses, landscaping and infrastructure. The proposed development was to be called Rochdale Riverside, sited on land bound by Smith Street to the South, John Street to the East, the rear of Yorkshire Street to the North, Penn Street and Baillie Street to the Northwest and Constantine Road to the West; in Rochdale Town Centre.

     

    The Director of Economy referred to a site visit undertaken by Members of the Committee earlier in the day.  The Director of Economy provided an update detailing amendments to the submitted report.  The Committee were advised that the Council, due to its positions as both land owner of the development site and local planning authority, cannot proceed on the basis of a section 106 Agreement which would be unlawful and unenforceable. The Committee were advised that, in this particular instance, the entering into of an agreement under section 111 of the Local Government Act 1972 by the Council and the Applicant would allow the Council to secure the provision of affordable housing to deliver on-site and/or an off-site contribution in lieu of on-site provision and to secure financial contributions towards recreational open space, education provision and a parking signage strategy in the event that Phase 2 is developed.

     

    As a result of this advice the sections of the submitted report headed Delegation Scheme (page 4) and Recommendation and Conditions (page 75) were updated as follows:

     

    Delegation Scheme
