Following the Officers’ presentation the Applicant, Mr Coleman addressed the Committee.


Members discussed the application in detail and raised a number of questions which were responded to by the Lead Specialist: Development Management.  In particular the following points were noted:


·                  There was no objection received from the ecological manager;


·                  Bridleways were not detailed in the application;


·                  Some of the attenuation proposed would double as an amenity area for general use and the Lead Local Flood Authority were happy this was an appropriate approach taken by the developer.


In response to some discussions regarding the Public Right of Way (PROW) and the need to be clear on the PROW being used, the Office advised he had noted this point.


Following further debate Councillor A S Fluker proposed that the application be agreed.  The Chairman put this to the Committee and it was duly agreed.


RESOLVED that this application be APPROVED subject to the following conditions:

1                The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in accordance with the following approved plans and documents:

Reason for Referral to the Committee / Council

Major application


It was noted from the Members’ Update that this application had been WITHDRAWN for future consultation following the receipt of new information.


Councillor A S Fluker raised a Point of Order proposing that the Committee either discuss the withdrawal of the application as an emergency item or take the Committee into private session under Section 100A of the Act. This was not supported.


In response to a request for further information, the Lead Specialist: Development Management explained that a number of consultees were not aware that the layout relating to this development had been withdrawn from the proposal.  This would have impacted consultation responses and meant that information before Members would not have been accurate.
