BH2022 02167 - Egremont Place, Brighton - Deed of Variation


1.       The Planning Manager introduced the application to the committee.


Answers to Committee Member Questions


2.       Councillor Shanks was informed by the Housing Enabling Officer that the council would look at buying the homes themselves but it if not viable a commuted sum would be sought to invest in affordable homes across the city. It is hoped that Registered Providers will be interested in the scheme as the flats are now in a separate block.


3.       Councillor Shanks was informed that the wording of the Head of Terms meant that if a commuted sum was to be used rather that on-site provision, the decision would not come back to committee.




4.       Councillor Shanks stated they were abstaining as the council should accept affordable housing not commuted sums.




5.       A vote was taken, and the committee agreed by 5 to 2 abstentions to grant Planning permission.


6.       RESOLVED: That the Committee has taken into consideration and agrees with the reasons for the recommendation set out in the report and resolves to AGREE the amended Head of Terms to the proposed S106 Agreement, subject to a review mechanism.
