Latest – Revised Planning Application 18/00481/FUL

Latest – Revised Planning Application 18/00481/FUL

50 residents attended the public meeting last night and made their concerns very clear. After looking in detail at the latest revised layout and parking statistics submitted and taking into account the residents real concerns, I have decided that I will call in the application as is my right as ward councillor, and request that the planning & environmental protection committee determine the application should officers be minded to recommend approval.

This requires me to stand down as chair for this item in order that I may address the committee as a ward councillor along with my fellow ward councillors.

My thanks to all who attended or sent me comments direct.

Call in request submitted as below….

Dear Sir/Madam

Having looked at the revised proposals and listened and discussed the concerns of local residents put forward at last nights residents meeting, I have decided that I personally cannot support the application and would like to call it in for determination by the planning committee should officers be minded to recommend approval on the grounds of highway safety concerns, inadequate parking and the effect on amenity.

I would also confirm that as chair of said committee, I am predetermined and therefore will step down for this item and address the committee as a ward councillor.

Kind regards

Cllr Chris Harper
