In accordance with the Council’s Policy for dealing with late matters in relation

to planning applications, (Minute No. D4.17, 1993/94 refers), officers proceeded to give a verbal report as to additional comments received in relation to the application as follows:-


It has been picked up by officers that matters relating to the maintenance and management of the open space adjacent to the Bridleway and the tree belt had not been included either through the provision of a planning condition or within the draft Section 106 agreement.


A further condition was therefore suggested by officers to cover the future maintenance and management of the open space and tree belt.  Matters relating to the management and maintenance of the proposed SUD’s had already been encompassed within condition 7 on page 40 of the agenda pack.


Paul Harris, on behalf of the Applicant, took the opportunity to address the Committee in respect of this matter. As per the agreed process, Members were then offered the opportunity to clarify any points raised during the submission as required.
