378 Appeal Decisions pdf icon PDF 27 KB


The Committee considered the report of the Head of Planning and Development setting out details of appeal decisions received since the last meeting.  It was pointed out that the decision to refuse application 13/1456 for a solar farm and associated works at Great Pagehurst Farm had been made by the Planning Committee and not by the Officers acting under delegated powers.


In response to questions:


The Development Manager confirmed that he was awaiting a response to his letter to the Quality Assurance Unit at the Planning Inspectorate regarding inconsistencies in appeal decisions.


The Vice-Chairman confirmed that clarification regarding the role of Members, particularly Planning Committee Members, at appeals was being addressed as part of the review being undertaken of the provisions of the Council’s Constitution relating to the Planning Committee.


RESOLVED:  That the report be noted, and that the Officers be congratulated on their work on the appeals.
