It was considered that there would be no harm to the local amenities.

This was a unique site and it would be very difficult to find an alternative anywhere else.

 

The application was recommended for approval with conditions as set out in the report and additional conditions recommended by the Council’s Ecologist, which were set out on the Supplements to the agenda.

 

Members of the Committee had the opportunity to ask technical questions of the Officer, where it was clarified that there was an ancient woodland with priority habitat to the south of the site, this was not an SSSI.
