    Minutes:

    A motion was put forward by Councillor McWilliams to approve the application, contrary to the Officers recommendation. In putting forward the motion Cllr McWilliams acknowledged the concerns regarding flooding and that there were two different professional opinions before the panel, however he recognised that the Council had a very full housing register and that the emerging local plan would not meet or full objectively assessed need of affordable housing. Cllr McWilliams considered that greater weight should be put on the provision of affordable housing. It was suggested to defer and delegate to Head of Planning in consultation, subject to referral to the Secretary of State, to approve the application subject to completion of the legal agreement and to secure refusal matters 2, 3 and 4 and carbon offset contribution and list of conditions to be agreed in consultation with the Head of Planning and the Chairman.

     

    A second motion was put forward by Councillor Reynolds to refuse the application as per Officers recommendation. This was seconded by Councillor Hill.

     

    Councillor Clark asked a few questions of the Head of Planning and then seconded Councillor McWilliams motion.

     

    Two named votes were taken.

     

    The first proposed and seconded motion was to refuse the application, as per Officers recommendation so this was voted on first.
