Members then took part in a full debate on the application where a number of points were raised and responded to by Officers, including:
· Councillor Lury requested that his concerns raised regarding the location’s close proximity to a roundabout and the dangers this would present to those attending the location be recorded in the minutes. It was stated that it was an accident waiting to happen.
· However other members felt that the driveway for the location was the biggest benefit to the property as there was a clear entry and exit layout
· Some comments were raised regarding the licensing of this business, members were reminded that licensing issues fell outside of this Committee’s remit
The recommendation was then duly proposed and seconded.
