The Planning Consultant presented the report with updates. Members asked to see drawings of the crossing bridge and a query was raised regarding the maturity of the trees that were due to be planted. The Planning Consultant provided members with the additional detail relating to the crossing bridge and confirmed its location, over the rife. He also provided confirmation that the trees planted would be of ‘sizable’ age but would not be fully matured at the time of planting. The Chair commented that she would like to ensure that the trees planted were continued to be looked after by the developer after planting to ensure the highest survival rate.
The recommendation was proposed by Councillor Blanchard-Cooper and seconded by Councillor Patel.
Delegated Authority be given to the Group Head of Planning in consultation with the Chair or Vice-Chair of the Planning Committee to approve the development after the Environment Agency (EA) have confirmed that they have no objection to the proposed plan of the bridge and if required accept non-material amendments to plans/details of the bridge to satisfy the EA and subject to the proposed conditions.
