    RESOLVED:

     

    That the meeting stand adjourned.  During the adjournment, members of the sub-committee discussed some of the issues that had been raised during the meeting, including whether or not the scheme would result in the over dominance of visitor accommodation in the area and have a negative impact on the transport network.

    Councillor Graham Neale was unable to re-join the virtual meeting due to connectivity and technical difficulties.

     

    RESOLVED:

    2.  That in the event that the legal agreement is unable to be completed by 31 December 2020, the Director of Planning be authorised to refuse planning permission on the following grounds:

     

    In the absence of a signed legal agreement, the proposal would fail to provide suitable mitigation in terms of:

     

    ·  Planning gain, contrary to saved policies 2.5 (planning obligations) and 4.4 (affordable housing) of the Southwark Plan

     

    ·  Policies SP6 (Homes for people on different incomes) and SP14 (implementation and delivery) of the council’s core strategy 2011

     

    ·  Policies 3.11 (affordable housing targets) and 8.2 (planning obligations) of the London Plan 2016, and
