Minutes:

RESOLVED:  The minutes of the 31 August meeting were agreed.

 

RESOLVED: The minutes of the 27 July meeting were agreed subject to amendments below:

 

To add the following points in the Ward Councillor’s representation section:

-          The site was in a hybrid residential area at the end of a cul-de-sac, and the proposal would change the nature and character of the area from mixed to being dominated by a waste site.

-          Noise, dust and air pollution impacts to residents of the adjoining housing estate including significant PM2.5 emissions.

-          Road safety impacts arising from conflict with cyclists, scooter users and pedestrians, as well as potential for bridge strikes. This would exacerbate dependence on motor vehicles.

-          Harm to residential amenity, business continuity and road safety far outweigh any potential benefits.

 

To add the following points to the MP’s representation section:

-          The recommended condition relating to the routing strategy would be unenforceable.

-          Extra vehicle movements would run contrary to the council’s promotion of active travel.

 

The Chair announced a provisional timetable for the meeting in accordance with Standing Order 9.9.1.

    Minutes:

    Case No. 21/01864/FUL, (agenda item 4, page 37 of the agenda pack, page 11 of the first addendum).

     

    The Planning Officer noted that following the publication of the first addendum, further representations had been received. These brought to officers’ attention the fact that Historic England had not been consulted on the application. Therefore, the officer recommendation was amended for this item to request that consideration of the application be deferred on a procedural basis. This is to allow for the consideration of late representations and for Historic England to be consulted in accordance with statutory requirements.

     

    It was MOVED by Councillor O’Hara, SECONDED by Councillor Dogus

     

    And

     

    RESOLVED, unanimously:

     

    To defer consideration of the application.
