Additional documents:


The Committee received a Section 73 application to vary condition 38 of permission 14/0028/OUT for residential development for up to 57 dwellings; proposing alternative vehicular access point location to that originally approved.  Members were advised that after publication of the amendment sheet previously circulated, which had set out some additional objections from an adjoining landowner, further discussions had taken place between the objector and County Highways, and the objection had been withdrawn.  The points raised in the amendment sheet should therefore not be taken into account.


Discussing the report, members noted that the only matter for decision was the relocation of the vehicular access point, and that the signs indicating the change of speed limit to 30mph were to be relocated by 4.8m to the west.  It had been necessary to call the meeting because of the potential gravity of the objection made and subsequently withdrawn.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 13 votes to 0 with 1 abstention) to grant the Section 73 application in accordance with  the officer recommendation and subject to the conditions set out in the officer report.
