Upon the proposal of Councillor Heather Williams, seconded by Councillor Nick Wright, and upon the Chair’s casting vote, the Committee resolved not to defer the application but, instead, to debate the issues and give officers delegated authority to determine  the application, in accordance with the Committee’s wishes, subject to no issues being raised during the additional consultation period ending on 29 December 2020. Should such issues be raised, the application would be referred back to Committee for reconsideration.


(Councillors Bradnam, Roberts, Heather Williams, Richard Williams and Wright voted to defer, Councillors John Batchelor, Cahn, Fane, Hawkins and Heylings voted to determine the application. Councillor Batchelor, as Chair, cast his vote in favour of determining the application at the current meeting.)


However, during the course of public speaking it became clear that Bourn Parish Council would be raising issues before the end of the public consultation period.


After taking advice from the Senior Planning Lawyer and Delivery Manager (Strategic Sites), the Chair proposed, seconded by Councillor Anna Bradnam, that the application be deferred. By affirmation, the Committee deferred the application until after the end of public consultation on 29 December 2020.
