Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The removal of the undercroft parking together with the increase in the number of flats would leave insufficient off-street parking for the proposed development, which would likely result in increased on-street parking on roads to the north and west of the site. This will likely result in a situation which would be prejudicial to the safety and operation of these roads. The development proposal is therefore contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (2023) and National Planning Practice Guidance, Policies SP6 and IT5 of the Stevenage Borough Local Plan 2011 - 2031 (adopted 2019) and the Council's Parking Provision and Sustainable Transport SPD (2020).
As the Committee voted to refuse the application for the residential development on the land to the West of Lytton Way, the application to vary the S.106 agreement was also REFUSED.
