A motion was put forward by Councillor Bowden for Officers recommendation as per the second panel update report. This was seconded by Councillor Cannon. This was to delegate authority to the Head of Planning to:
· grant planning permission subject to the conditions listed in Section 4 of the panel update report and subject to the completion of a legal agreement to secure the affordable housing review mechanism and other infrastructure set out in section 10 of the main report.
· refuse planning permission if a legal agreement to secure the affordable housing review mechanism and other infrastructure set out in section 10 of the main report has not been completed by 3rd June 2021 for the reason that the application would not secure the provision of affordable housing from the scheme nor provision of other infrastructure necessary to offset the impact of the development.
