Departure from the Local Plan

 

Following the Officer’s presentation, the Applicant, Ronald Rayner, addressed the Committee.

 

A debate ensued around boundary treatment and where it was to be placed in relation to houses along the main road.  The Lead Specialist Place advised that the conditions and reserved matters were the same as those previously allowed by the Inspector.

 

Following further discussion on boundary planting needs Councillor Miss S White proposed that the application be approved in accordance with the Officer’s recommendation, subject to the submission of an amended boundary planting scheme together with a Unilateral Understanding. This was seconded by Councillor Keyes.
