    Minutes:

    The Chairman highlighted that there were a number of registered speakers who had registered within the deadline.   The Chairman noted that the registered speakers had been contacted in advanced of the meeting to agree among themselves which two residents would make a representation.   The Chairman checked the position with the attending Governance Officer and the registered speakers that were in attendance.  It became clear that agreement had not been reached.  The Chairman therefore adjourned the meeting for a short time and requested that the Governance Officer consult with residents in order to a positive outcome to be found.   The Chairman noted that an agreement could not be met and therefore he informed the public gallery that that Mr Adewale Bakare and Mr Ian Fergusson could make a representation as they had registered in time.   Both residents had the opportunity to make a representation.   The third resident was not able to speak as he had not registered in time.   

     

    Ward Member Councillor Gill Sargeant made a representation in objection to the application.  The applicant’s agent then gave a verbal representation.

     

    Members of the Committee had the opportunity to question all speakers. 

     

    During the consideration of the item the Chairman sought clarity on the Silk Stream, landscaping and information relating to infrastructure.   Mr Griffiths duly responded to these points and outlined the S106 contributions.

    Before the consideration of the item the Chairman welcomed the scouts in attendance, particularly the younger members that were in attendance. 

     

    The Committee received the report and the addendum to the report.

     

    The Committee heard verbal representations from Mr Clive Hailey and Mr Bill Taylor who spoke in objection to the application.   During this phase of the meeting both speakers noted concerns in regards to trees.  The applicant’s agent spoke in response.  

     

    Members of the Committee had the opportunity to ask all speakers questions.

     

    The Chairman questioned the applicant’s agent in regard to concerns that related to the screening of trees and any negative impact to trees in the event the application be approved.  He therefore suggested that the item be deferred so that further information could be provided to clarify this matter. The applicant responded to this point that they did not consider that a deferral was necessary but would defer to the Chairman in this regard.

     

    The Chairman proposed and was seconded by Cllr Roberts that the application was deferred to the next meeting, for the applicant to provide additional information in relation to the root zone of the adjacent trees in the scout camp and to provide a construction method statement demonstrating how the proposed basement would be constructed while safeguarding the adjoining trees.
