    RESOLVED:

     

    That planning permission for application number 16-AP-1758 be refused, for the following reasons:

     

    1.  The flue location is in close proximity to residential windows and gardens and would result in noise and smells. The proposal would also exacerbate the existing litter problem, be detrimental to visual and residential amenity and so would contravene policy 3.2 of the Southwark Plan 2007 “Protection of amenity”.

     

    2.  The proposed A5-use in close proximity to the Harris Academy, coupled with the existence of other take-aways in the immediate area, is contrary to:

     

    ·  Policy 3.2 of the current London Plan - Improving health and addressing health inequalities.

     

    ·  Part 8 of the National Planning Policy Framework – Promoting healthy communities.

     

    ·  Strategic Policy 4 of the Core Strategy 2011- Places for learning, enjoyment and healthy lifestyles.

     

    ·  Policy DM41 of the draft New Southwark Plan – hot food takeaways.
