    PROPOSAL

     

    Change of use of the upper floors of The Cherry Tree Public House from ancillary staff accommodation (Class A4 Use) to create a 26-bed bunk house hostel (Sui Generis - Visitor Accommodation) across four rooms plus ancillary accommodation for the general manager (Class A4).

     

    The sub-committee heard the officer’s introduction to the report and addendum report. Councillors asked questions of the officer.

     

    Spokespersons for the objectors addressed the meeting. Members of the sub-committee asked questions of the spokespersons for the objectors.

     

    The applicant’s agent addressed the sub-committee, and answered questions put by the sub-committee.

     

    There were no supporters who lived within 100m of the development site, or ward councillors, present and wishing to speak.

     

    The sub-committee put further questions to officers and discussed the application.

     

    A motion to grant planning permission was moved, seconded, put to the vote and declared lost.

     

    At 7.35pm the meeting adjourned to take advice from officers and reconvened at 7.55pm.

     

    A motion to refuse planning permission was moved, seconded, put to the vote and declared carried.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    That planning application 17/AP/4421 be refused, as it would result in an unacceptable level of disturbance to neighbouring residential amenity, resulting from the intensity of the use and level of activity. This would give rise to noise, disturbance and increased levels of occupation out of character with the established nature of the area, contrary to saved policies 3.2 'Protection Of Amenity' and 1.12 'Hotels And Visitor Accommodation' of the Southwark Plan 2007.
