NOTE: This application proposal previously came to committee in July and committee resolved to grant planning consent.  However, due to technical difficulties, the opportunity for residents to make representations on the proposal to the committee did not take place.  In order to ensure the interests all parties are not prejudiced the application has been brought back to committee for Members to consider afresh and to permit parties on both sides to express their views on the application during public speaking.
