Councillor Pippa Heylings proposed that Condition 19 be expanded to relate also to visual and neighbour amenity. This was seconded by Councillor Anna Bradnam and, upon a roll call being taken, the Committee accepted the amendment by eight votes to one with two abstentions.


(Councillors John Batchelor, Bradnam, Cahn, Fane, Hawkins, Heylings, Rippeth, and Heather Williams voted in favour. Councillor Roberts voted against. Councillors Richard Williams and Wright abstained.)


By eight votes to three, the Committee deferred the application to allow the Senior Planning Lawyer to consider the legal arguments made, and verdict reached, in the case of Mansell v Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council and thus be able to advise the Committee fully, and to enable Planning officers to explore the feasibility of conducting a Member site visit.


(Councillors Bradnam, Hawkins, Heylings, Rippeth, Roberts, Heather Williams, Richard Williams, and Wright voted for deferral. Councillors John Batchelor, Cagn and Fane voted against.)
