[Councillor Warr arrived at the beginning of this item.]


This application was deferred by Committee on 28 September 2022 [Minute 306] to allow for further consideration of information yet to come forward from the applicant. The Planning Area Team Leader presented the report which provided further information to Members on information supplied by the applicant, including use of the buildings and some revised fenestration drawings. A verbal update was given that a heritage statement had been received from the applicant. As this was a deferred item, the applicant was unable to speak again on the item and wished for it to be noted that they had not had the opportunity to speak to the Council’s Conservation Officer. As there had been no substantive changes to the proposed scheme, the Officer recommendation to refuse the application had not changed. After one Member sought clarification over the amendments to the designs, the recommendation was proposed by Councillor Bower and seconded by Councillor Lury.


The Committee




That the application be REFUSED.
