Mr Helliwell returned to the meeting and resumed the Chair.


Members had visited the site on the previous day.


The Head of Planning introduced the report, and informed Members of a correction to the report at paragraph 66 where the sentences had been repeated.  The Head of Planning informed Members that although there had been some objections from the local community regarding flooding issues, it was felt that some of the drainage and flooding issues may not be directly related to the application site, and that detailed drainage information had been submitted to the Local Authority Drainage Officer who concluded that the proposals were acceptable subject to conditions.


Members considered that this was well thought out scheme and would relieve some of the parking issues on the lane, but asked for  a condition limiting the use of the site to overcome neighbourliness  and amenity concerns.  Members also asked that Condition 20 be reworded to make it clearer and that there was an additional Condition to ensure that bins were kept inside.


A motion to approve the application in accordance with the Officer recommendation subject to an additional condition regarding limiting the use of the site and bins being kept inside  and the rewording of Condition 20 was moved, seconded ,put to the vote and carried.
