David Royce (objector) and Philip Kratz (applicant’s agent) addressed the meeting.


Dr. Jon Finney from the Local Highways Authority said that, from the LHA’s point of view, the most important issue was to assess whether the impact of the proposed development was ‘severe’. A decrease in the number of car parki8ng spaces reduced the number of potential conflict points. In the LHA’s opinion, the proposal’s likely impact fell short of the level at which a transport statement would be deemed necessary.  Therefore, it did not consider there to be any significant adverse issues, and had no objection to the proposed development.


Following discussion by Members, and by nine votes to nil (with Councillor Bill Handley abstaining) the Committee approved the application subject to the Conditions and Informatives set out in the report from the Joint Director for Planning and Economic Development.
