    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Change of use from industrial unit (use class B1) to veterinary surgery (use class D1) together with alterations to roof, fenestration and associated parking

     

    Speaking in favour of the application was Mr Dawson.

     

    Speaking as ward councillor was Councillor Wing.

     

    Speaking under council procedure rule 20.1 was  Councillor Towning.

     

    Speaking as town councillor was Councillor Campbell.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by the Vice Chairman:

     

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

     

    1  The site is located on the Princes Road Industrial Estate, Ramsgate. Policy EC12 of the Thanet Local Plan (June 2006) only permits employment uses falling within Use Classes B1, B2 and B8 on this Industrial Estate. The proposed use as a veterinary surgery does not fall within the permitted use classes for the Princes Road Industrial Estate and as such the proposal is contrary to the aims of policy EC12 of the Thanet Local Plan (June 2006).

     

    Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared LOST.

     

    Then, it was proposed by Councillor Albon and seconded by Councillor Moore:

     

    “That the application be APPROVED subject to safeguarding conditions as identified by consultees, on the grounds that the economic and social benefits of the proposed use, including employment and provision of services in this location, outweigh the loss of the site for industrial use under Policy EC12 as an acceptable departure from that policy.”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.

    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Erection of first floor extension to facilitate additional hotel accommodation

     

    Councillor Wright left the Chamber.

     

    Speaking raising points of concern was Mr Kramer.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by the Vice Chairman:

     

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reason:

     

     1  The proposed development, by virtue of its design and positioning of the first floor flat roof extension in relation to the main building, would result in a prominent, incongruous and discordant extension that would detract from the existing form of this seafront building. The proposal would therefore be contrary to the aims of saved policy D1 of the Thanet Local Plan and paragraphs 127 and 130 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

    Further to debate, the motion was put to the vote and declared CARRIED.

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    That the application be DEFERRED AND DELEGATED to officers for approval subject to receipt of legal agreement to secure SAMMs mitigation and the following safeguarding conditions:

     

    1  The development hereby permitted shall be begun before the expiration of three years from the date of this permission.

    This strategy will include the following components:

     

    1. A preliminary risk assessment which has identified all previous uses, potential contaminants associated with those uses, a conceptual model of the site indicating sources, pathways and receptors, and potentially unacceptable risks arising from contamination at the site. 

     

    2. A site investigation scheme, based on (1) to provide information for a detailed assessment of the risk to all receptors that may be affected, including those off site. 

     

    3. The results of the site investigation and the detailed risk assessment referred to in (2) and, based on these, an options appraisal and remediation strategy giving full details of the remediation measures required and how they are to be undertaken.
