Introduction:-

The agent has provided additional information in relation to the economic and operational benefits of the scheme including;

·               14 direct construction roles and indirect jobs supported per annum during the build phase

·               £1.2 million GVA economic output contribution from jobs supported by activities at the site over the expected 18-month build

·               18 residents estimated to live in proposed development with an estimated first occupation expenditure of £25,000. 

 

The information includes Council Tax revenue generated from the proposal, which is not considered to be a benefit of a development scheme.

 

Appraisal:-

The economic benefits of the scheme including construction expenditure and the ongoing support to local services in the surrounding area are already weighed in the planning balance assessment of the proposal. The additional information does not change the assessment already made within the officer’s report to Committee.

Play and Open Space

 

Policy 19 of the Core Strategy identifies standards for play and open space within the borough. Developments should accord with the policy and provide acceptable open space within the development, or if that is not possible contribute towards the provision and maintenance of open space off site. The Open Space and Recreation Study 2016, updates these standards and also identifies the costs for off-site and on-site contributions. In line with the up to date standards identified in the 2016 study the table below identified the requirements for open space.

 

The nearest existing off site public open space is CON06 Church Field, with a quality score of 69%. Church Field provides Children’s play equipment, and casual informal play space. There are no outdoor sports facilities or accessibly natural green spaces within the catchment of Congerstone therefore, no contribution is sought towards these typologies.

There is some incidental open space provided within the development, however this is not considered to meet the requirements of Play and Open Space as set out in Core Strategy Policy 19.

Church Field is within 400m of the application site, and is below the prescribed quality score. To ensure this development provides sufficient open space in accordance with Policy 19 of the Core Strategy this contribution is considered necessary and directly related and fairly and reasonably related in scale and kind to the development proposed and therefore meets the CIL tests.
