Reporting Person – Peter Bryant
Following an appeal by GolDev Woking Limited against the refusal of planning permission, the Executive received a report seeking authority that the Executive Undertakings it gave previously at its meeting on 22 June 2020 should apply if the Secretary of State granted planning permission for the proposed development. The Executive noted that the Secretary of State had called it in due to the number of dwellings.
That (i) the Council shall procure that the Executive Undertakings in respect of planning applications PLAN/2019/1176 and PLAN/2019/1177 set out in the Appendix to the report are complied with; and
(ii) authority be delegated to the Chief Executive (existing and designate) to give Executive Undertaking(s) if the Secretary of State requires changes to the Executive Undertakings set out in the Appendix to the report.
Reason: To enable the Secretary of State to be certain that planning obligations will be secured if he is minded to grant the planning permissions sought.
