The Legal Officer advised that following deliberations, the Sub Committee Members had agreed to adjourn the meeting to enable further investigations and evidence gathering to take place, prior to a decision being made. Working with the Council’s Environmental Health Team, four weeks of testing via noise recordings would be facilitated with the Review Applicant to enable further evidence to be collected and considered.
Following further testing of noise/disturbance levels from the Review Applicant’s property, it was ascertained that no further action would be required and therefore the Sub Committee would not be required to reconvene to finalise proceedings.
that having considered the review application and further submission of noise recordings from the Review Applicant’s property, it be noted that no further action is required.
