Additional documents:


The Principal Planning Officer introduced the item. The purpose of the report was to update Members of the progress with the discussions regarding the S106 and to agree minor amendments to the S106 Head of Terms since the original Committee resolution on the 11 June 2020. The Planning Committee had resolved to agree the outline development subject to conditions and a S106 legal agreement with the Head of Terms as set out in the agenda. Discussions had been going well on the S106 and officers requesting a minor amendment to the S106. The Head of Terms requires the applicant to pay £75k contribution towards the building of a skate park. During the discussions on the S106 it has come to light that a Skate Park would not require that sum of money and that it could be provided for £50k. Whilst also discussing the S106 it became apparent that a Clerk of Works would be appropriate given the nature of the community facilities to be provided also part of the S106 in particular the community building and sports pitch. Therefore, with the agreement of the applicant officers were seeking to amend the S106 Head of Terms so that the skate park contribution is reduced to £50k and that the £25k remaining be given by the applicant towards a Clerk of Works. The purpose of the Clerk of Works is to periodically check on the construction of the community building and the sports pitch to to ensure it has been built to the appropriate standards. She confirmed that all other aspect of the S106 Head of Terms remained the same.


It was confirmed that the Clerk of Works would be employed by East Hampshire District Council. They would be employed to undertake spot checks on the construction of the community building and sports pitch. The specifications would be agreed in advance of the building of the works and ensure the work was carried out to the specifications.


Councillors were reassured that 50k would be enough to construct a skate park a number had been built in the District up to that figure. In respect of the size of the skate there was a specification for this.


The committee debated the application.


Councillor Evans, local ward councillor had no problem with the recommendation and fully supported it.


Councillors Johnson, local ward councillor had no problems but fully supported the appointment of a Clerk of Works.


Councillors fully supported the recommendations and in particular the appointment of a Clerk of Works.


Councillor Pond proposed the recommendation


Councillor Ashcroft seconded the recommendation


That the Head of Terms of the S106 Legal agreement be amended as per the revised Heads of Terms list attached at Appendix 2 of the report


1.     £75, 000 Skate Park contribution reduced to £50,000; and

2.     Additional Head of Term: Clerk of Works financial contribution of £25,000


Following the vote, the recommendation was declared CARRIED, 11 Councillors voting FOR the S106 Heads of Terms to be amended, no Councillors  ...  view the full minutes text for item 30.
