TWC/2022/0398 Site of Portico House, 22 Donnington House/land to rear, Vineyard Road, Wellington, Telford, Shropshire


This full planning application was for the conversion of existing buildings into 9no. residential units on the site of Portico House, 22 Donnington House/land to rear, Vineyard Road, Wellington, Telford, Shropshire.


This application had been called to Committee as the application triggered the need for a s106 agreement linked to a previous grant of TWC/2021/0593 for the erection of 3no. detached dormer bungalows and parking on adjoining land to the north.


During the debate some Members welcomed the development.  Other Members raised concerns relating to access, car parking, bin storage and refuse collection.


The Planning Officer confirmed to Members that the bungalows on site were already being constructed but it was the same applicant and the site would be managed in relation to car parking arrangements.  Refuse vehicles would not be expected to travel up to the bungalows and any refuse vehicle would have sufficient turning space.  The parking spaces for the bungalows would have some separation via a hedge in order to provide some defendable space.


Upon being put to the vote it was unanimously:


RESOLVED – that delegated authority be granted to the Development Management Service Delivery Manager to grant Planning Permission subject to:-


a)    The applicant entering into a Section 106 agreement with the Local Planning Authority (subject to indexation from the date of committee), with terms to be agreed by the Development Management Service Delivery Manager, relating to:


i)     Recreation contribution of £7,150 towards improving the nearest children’s equipped play facilities in the adjacent open space at Crescent Road Playing Field;


ii)   s.106 Monitoring Fee of £250.00 (2% of the total value of

      contributions or minimum of £250.00); and


b)   the conditions contained within the report (with authority to finalise conditions and reasons for approval to be delegated to Development Management Service Delivery Manager).
