1 Public Speaker

          Councillor Nikki Hamilton-Street – Angmering Parish Council


Approval of reserved matters following outline consent A/46/21/OUT for 2 No dwellings including details of the access, appearance, landscaping, layout, and scale. This application is in CIL Zone 4 and is CIL Liable as new dwellings.


The Planning Area Team Leader presented the report. This was followed by 1 Public Speaker. One Member spoke of the regrettable loss of green space and whether the design could have been more sympathetic given the level of local opposition to it. The Officer recommendation to approve conditionally was then proposed by Councillor Chapman and seconded by Councillor Chace. After the vote, this was declared NOT CARRIED. Following advice from the Legal Services Manager, reasons for refusal were then discussed. Members were of the view that the design of the scheme had an adverse impact on the character of the area. A recommendation to defer refusal pending a site visit was proposed by Councillor Bower and seconded by Chace.


The Committee




That the application be DEFERRED for a site visit.


After the vote, the Group Head of Planning clarified that Committee had already voted against the Officer recommendation to approve conditionally and so when this application came back it would be for the Committee to decide whether and on what grounds to refuse or defer the application.
