Declarations of Interest

Members are requested to indicate at this stage in the proceedings any items on the agenda in which they intend to declare an interest. Members are reminded that if the interest is a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct) they must leave the room for the whole of that item. If the interest is not a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest, but is such that a member of the public could reasonably regard it as being so significant that it is likely that it would prejudice their judgment of the public interest (as explained in the Code of Conduct) then they may make representations, but then must leave the meeting for the remainder of the item.

Minutes:

None.

Appeal Decisions

Minutes:

The Head of Development Management informed the committee that the Planning Inspector’s uphold of the refusal for development by Wainhomes on Chain House Lane, Whitestake, had been quashed by the High Court.

 

A further inquiry was to take place and it was felt that it would have been inappropriate to discuss the matter further during this Planning Committee meeting.
