To consider application UTT/19/2288/FUL.
The Senior Planning Officer presented a proposal for planning permission for the erection of 13 dwellings, including access, parking and associated works. He stated that, if the application was approved, Condition 3 would not be required.
The application was recommended for approval with conditions.
The members noted that planning permission had already been granted. They discussed access arrangements, construction traffic, national space standards, parking provision and ecology conditions.
Councillor Fairhurst highlighted safety concerns and access arrangements and proposed refusal of the application but there was no seconder for the motion.
Councillor LeCount proposed the motion to approve the application, with the omission of Condition 3, the boosting of Conditions 19 and 20 and a new Condition 21 in respect of compliance with Technical Housing Standards.
Councillor Caton seconded the motion.
