Erection of 30 Industrial Units arranged in five blocks, comprising Industrial Processes (Class Eg(iii)), General Industry (B2) and Storage and Distribution (Class B8) together with associated parking and landscaping.

 

The Strategic Sites Lead Specialist informed that 4 further conditions are recommended in respect of  (1) BREEAM, (2) Carbon emissions - 10% improvement on buildings regulations, (3) Hours of Use and (4) Strategies in respect of  B2 uses to deal with noise, smell or any other potential impact, to be submitted and approved prior to occupation of those uses.

Resolved: That planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out at the end of the report, those added in the verbal update (with the exception of (3) above, which is to be included in condition 4, relating to the B2 uses only), and that delegated authority be given to the Chief Planning Officer to agree and finalise the wording of the conditions and add any other conditions that he considers necessary.
