Minutes:

Moved by Councillor Simon Tagg and seconded by Councillor Jones.

overdevelopment of the site by virtue of the number of dwellings proposed which would harm the character and appearance of the area contrary to policy.

accommodate the scale of the development proposed and as such would result in issues of highway safety contrary to policy.

 

That, the applicant be advised that Planning Committee

indicated that any further application to develop the site should be a full and detailed application so that issues of residential and visual amenity, and safety of any SUDs feature could be fully assessed.
