The applicant is advised that prior to the initial occupation of any individual dwelling hereby permitted, a 140 litre wheeled bin conforming to British Standard BSEN840 and a 60 litre recycling box should be provided for the exclusive use of the occupants of that dwelling. Prior to the initial occupation of any communal dwellings or flats, wheeled refuse bins conforming to British Standard BSEN840, separate recycling bins for paper/card and mixed cans, and storage facilities for the bins should be installed by the developer prior to the initial occupation of any dwelling hereby permitted. Further details on the required number and specification of wheeled bins and recycling boxes is available from the Council's Neighbourhood Services on 01737 276501 or 01737 276097, or on the Council's website at www.reigate-banstead.gov.uk. Bins and boxes meeting the specification may be purchased from any appropriate source, including the Council's Neighbourhood Services Unit on 01737 276775.

3. You are advised that the Council will expect the following measures to be taken during any building operations to control noise, pollution and parking:
(a) Work that is audible beyond the site boundary should only be carried out between 08:00hrs to 18:00hrs Monday to Friday, 08:00hrs to 13:00hrs Saturday and not at all on Sundays or any Public and/or Bank Holidays;
(b) The quietest available items of plant and machinery should be used on site. Where permanently sited equipment such as generators are necessary, they should be enclosed to reduce noise levels;
(c) Deliveries should only be received within the hours detailed in (a) above;
(d) Adequate steps should be taken to prevent dust-causing nuisance beyond the site boundary. Such uses include the use of hoses to damp down stockpiles of materials, which are likely to generate airborne dust, to damp down during stone/slab cutting; and the use of bowsers and wheel washes;
(e) There should be no burning on site;
(f) Only minimal security lighting should be used outside the hours stated above; and
(g) Building materials and machinery should not be stored on the highway and contractors' vehicles should be parked with care so as not to cause an obstruction or block visibility on the highway.
Further details of these noise and pollution measures can be obtained from the Council's Environmental Health Services Unit.
In order to meet these requirements and to promote good neighbourliness, the Council recommends that this site is registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme - www.ccscheme.org.uk/index.php/site-registration.

The sum described above is payable within a period of 28 days from commencement of development. Failure to pay the infrastructure contribution may result in legal action being taken against the developer and/or owner of the land.

6. The developer of this site should be aware that a large area of permeable paving, or similar Sustainable Drainage System, would be required within the development in order to comply with planning condition 11.

INFORMATIVES
1. Your attention is drawn to the safety benefits of installing sprinkler systems as an integral part of new development. Further information is available at www.firesprinklers.info.

2. You are advised that the Council will expect the following measures to be taken during any building operations to control noise, pollution and parking:

31The Chairman reported that item 9 had been withdrawn from the agenda.

32The addendum circulated provided an update on matters arising after the agenda was published.
33The Committee considered an application for 11 residential units, access and boundary treatment including parking and an area of informal play space.

Concerns were raised about refuse collection vehicle access to the development, specifically from The Frenches, and noted that Neighbourhood Services had confirmed their refuse lorries could access both parts of the site.

It was also noted any damage caused to a private access road during construction was not something that the Planning Committee could control as this was a private and not public matter.

The exact boundary of the tree root protection area was also queried as the plans appeared to show that it touched upon the edge of units 6 and 7. It was noted that the plans were not to scale and that officers would verify the detail and confirm to Ward Members and the Chairman in due course to ensure that the trees were appropriately protected.
34The Committee considered an application for a two storey extension with basement and accommodation in the roof space, proposed parking area, addition of windows within the existing dwelling house and roof lights.

A member of the public spoke against the application and the applicant spoke in its favour.

During the debate the legitimacy of the extant planning permission was queried and officers confirmed that the permission granted in 2012 was valid and that it could be implemented at any time.

It was also confirmed that the current application was of ostensibly the same size as the extant scheme.

The issue for the Committee was to decide whether the revised application was overbearing in its bulk, scale and design.
35The Committee considered an application for retention of the existing facade and redevelopment to provide 61 residential units (Use Class C3) and a ground floor retail unit (Class A1/A2) with associated parking, highways works and landscaping.

It was noted that the development was within an air quality control area. Condition 9 controlled replacement tree planting and the Ward Member asked that consideration be given to selecting trees that would filter pollution
36Application withdrawn from the agenda.
37The Committee considered an application for a new single storey pavilion comprising cafe and WCs as part of the regeneration of the entire park. Construction was to be partly of coloured rendered masonry and partly of oak frame, with sliding/ folding metal doors and windows beneath a mono pitch roof with panels of photovoltaic cells.

Members supported the proposals but asked Officers to ensure that the Council gave careful thought to the design of photovoltaic panels selected, as they found some of the older-style models particularly unattractive and visually obtrusive
38The Committee considered an application for an amendment to application 13/00128/F - new leisure centre. The application was for amendments to the car park and internal alterations as a variation of conditions 1, 13, 15, 17 and 19.

It was noted that the amendments were required in order to meet Sport England requirements
39The Committee considered an application for a public footpath diversion order.

It was noted that footpath diversions would normally be the responsibility of the County Council except where the diversion was required for a planning consent to be implemented.

In this case the diversion was required for the implementation of planning permission 13/00587/F, granted to East Surrey Hospital, Canada Avenue, Redhill for a new respiratory unit
