Cllr Kelly asked if there should’ve been separate votes on the extra condition and the approval. The answer given was that the vote was on the proposal with the extra condition. The Chair asked the legal officers if they were happy and it was legal. Cllr Realey wanted a vote on the application. The Chair asked the legal officer. He said they had voted to approve the application with the amendment. Cllr Kelly said that councillors had voted on the lighting condition and it had not been clear.
The Planning Committee went onto consider item 5 APP/11/00194 – Stadium Court, STADIUM ROAD, BROMBOROUGH – Construction of new B1, B2, B8 Use Class Units. The officer said it was a major application for ten industrial units. B1, B2 & B8 uses were acceptable in the area, so was the scale and massing. Previously it had been a vacant site. Cllr Mitchell and Cllr Realey proposed it be approved. Councillors voted in favour of approval.
APP/11/00491 – 43 CROFT DRIVE, MORETON, CH46 0QS – Two storey side extension, single storey rear extension, garage alterations and internal remodelling. The officer said it was a householder application for a two storey side and rear extension. It had been designed to avoid a terracing effect and was recommended for approval. Cllr Mitchell said he agreed but he would like to make the point that the application was part of the employment of a councillor, which would normally be dealt with by the delegated process. He said it would be easier if they were all left as a block item on their own on the agenda, then they would be seen on their own.
