21/0109/FUL  Erection of detached domestic garage building to rear at 3 Marton Moor Road, Middlesbrough, TS7 0BL for Ms Chloe Brodrick

**In light of the non-pecuniary interest declared at the beginning of the meeting, prior to consideration of the following item, Councillor B Cooper left the meeting room**


21/0247/COU  Part change of use from church and community centre (D1) to public house (A4) with associated outdoor seating area at Former St Cuthberts Youth and Community Centre, Newport Road, Middlesbrough, TS5 4BY for Mr Russell Towers


Full details of the planning application and the plan status were outlined in the report.  The report contained a detailed analysis of the application and analysed relevant policies from the National Planning Policy Framework and the Local Development Framework.


The Development Control Manager advised that the application sought planning permission to use part of the existing community centre as a drinking establishment (A4).  Although there were no significant alterations to the external appearance of the premises, part of the curtilage (between the building and the church to the north) was proposed for use as an outdoor drinking area.


The key issues to be considered as part of the application were the principle of a town centre use being situated outside any designated centre, and the potential detrimental impacts of the use and its associated operations (for example, any deliveries, refuse collections and outdoor seating area use) on the nearby residential properties.


The application under consideration was a resubmission of a previous application (20/0205/FUL).  Members of the Planning Committee refused the preceding application in November 2020, as it was considered that the proposed use and its associated activities would result in undue noise and disturbance upon the nearby local residents.


Members were informed that the application had been supported by a Sequential Assessment in order to provide justification for the proposed use in this edge-of-centre location.  Whilst it was the officer conclusion that the application failed the sequential approach, it was considered that the scale of the use would not be harmful to the vitality and viability of Middlesbrough Town Centre or any other recognised local centre.


To address the concerns of Members, the application had also been supported by a Noise Assessment, which considered the potential noise and disturbance from the use.  The assessment estimated the expected levels of noise from the premises and concluded that there was very little likelihood of any adverse noise  ...  view the full minutes text for item 21/3
