The Committee received a Section 73 application.


The application sought approval to vary condition 16 (Long Road Access) of 14/2070/FUL to also allow (ie include) vehicles providing a delivery, collection or maintenance function for the Perse School.


Ms Wood (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application. She suggested replacing conditions 3, 4 and 8 with two new conditions regarding traffic access.


Councillor Blencowe proposed an amendment to the Officer’s recommendation that condition 3 refer to the ‘site’ not ‘school’.Councillor Smart proposed an amendment to the Officer’s recommendation that refuse and vehicular access be specifically referenced in conditions (for clarification, although they were legally the same thing).


The amendments were carried unanimously. The Senior Planning Officer suggested clarifying details in condition 3, deleting (report pack) conditions 4 and 8, then renumbering remaining conditions.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolvedto grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the officer report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the officers with the following amendments:
