Ref: 17/501196 


Riverhill Apartments, 10 - 12 London Road, Maidstone



Update to paragraph 7.15 of the committee report relating to electric charging points.  On further inspection of the site it is considered that the existing parking / service area at the rear of the building may be able to accommodate at least one electric charging point for use by the future occupants and to mitigate the impact of the proposed development without impacting on existing parking spaces.  As such I propose the following additional condition: 


Electrical charging points

The development hereby approved shall not be occupied until details of a minimum of one electric vehicle charging point, including a programme for the installation, maintenance and management, has been submitted to and approved in writing by the local planning authority. The electric vehicle charging point(s) as approved shall be installed prior to occupation of the building(s) hereby permitted and shall thereafter be retained and maintained in accordance with the approved details.


Reason:  To promote the reduction of CO2 emissions through the use of low emissions vehicles in accordance with paragraph 35 of the NPPF.
