Representations Recieved

Cllr P Brady (Authority Member)

Details of the representation

Upon reflection, I must express my concern about the proposed condition 2 (the 28 day occupancy condition).

An Aparthotel is clearly a Class C1 use and a condition limiting the use of the proposed hotel to Class C1 is all that is required.

What is being proposed here is contrary to all previous advice that Members of the Planning Committee have been given. We have in the past been firmly devised that conditions in anticipation of future changes of use (in this case to residential) are inappropriate and wrong - the latest clear example of this happening was in relation to Bleaklow Farm, above Rowland.

The proposed condition is clearly unnecessary and contrary to Government advice, and runs the real danger of preventing this development happening.
