Since the committee report had been written, letters had been received from solicitors acting on behalf of Fowlmere Parish Council in respect of the ‘fallback’ position namely, the previously agreed Class Q for two dwellings.  Members had considered that issue to be crucial in approving the application on 11 November 2020.


In reply to these letters, the applicant’s solicitor had submitted responses that were completely contrary to the views expressed by the Parish Council’s legal advisor.


The detailed legal arguments in this correspondence require further consideration by officers so that Members can make a robust, informed decision.


By affirmation, the Committee deferred the application to enable officers to provide Members with a report that takes into account all of the new points made.
