The Strategic Development Team Leader presented the report with updates. Members raised points around the extent of the boundary and the ownership of the road shown in diagrams within the boundary, traffic at the Saltbox roundabout and what improvements the financial contribution from the Section 106 agreement would provide, and the possibility of customer-facing activity onsite and an increase in footfall to the site.
