Richard Parish (objector), Barry Johnson (applicant) andcllr Angela Pearce (Arrington Parish Council) addressed the meeting. Committee members established that part only of Mill Lane had a hard surface but that space existed to accommodate vehicle passing spaces. The intention was that the lets should be short-term holiday lets only. It was confirmed that the proposed gym and retail facilities would be for the benefit only of those staying in the holiday lets. The applicant confirmed that he would be prepared to pay for the hard surfacing of the whole of Mill Lane, but pointed out this would need consent from the landowner.


Members were informed that some residents of Mill Lane apparently had not been notified about the application.


Following further debate, and by seven votes to three, the Committee gave officers delegated powers to approve the application subject to:


1.     Officers being satisfied with the effectiveness of the public consultation;

2.     The removal of Permitted Development Rights;

3.     The Conditions and Informatives set out in the report from the Joint Director for Planning and Economic Development, with any minor amendments to these being agreed by officers in consultation with the Planning Committee’s Chairman and Vice-Chairman.


Councillors John Batchelor, Cahn, Handley, Hawkins, Heylings, Milnes and Rippeth voted to approve the application. Councillors Roberts, Heather Williams and Wright voted to refuse the application.
