RESOLVED

 

1.    that, in respect of application P/19/0813/2 (Land off Platts Road, Cossington):

 

(a)  Delegated authority by given to the Head of Planning and Regeneration to enter into a S106 Legal Agreement to secure the provision of the Landscape and Biodiversity Area and its future retention and maintenance, and;

 

(b)  Planning Permission be granted, contrary to Officer’s Recommendation, subject to the signing of a S106 Legal Agreement and planning conditions to be determined by the Head of Planning and Regeneration.

 

Reason:   The Committee considered the proposed dwelling to be an appropriate design for the site (policy EV/1 and CS2) and its relationship and impact on heritage (policy CS14) and ecology (Policy CS 13) to be acceptable. The site was within the village limits of development (Policy ST/2) and was therefore considered in general conformity with policy CS1 within the Local Plan.
