Appeals List - 5th April 2018

Meeting: 05/04/2018 - Planning Committee (Item 457)

457 Appeal Decisions pdf icon PDF 43 KB


The Committee considered the report of the Head of Planning and Development setting out details of appeal decisions received since the last meeting.


A Member expressed concern that the appeal against the decision taken by the Officers under delegated powers to refuse application 17/503397 for the erection of a detached dwelling house at 16 Kings Cottages, Maidstone Road, Nettlestead had been allowed at appeal.  The Member sought assurances that in the course of negotiations during the appeal process, the Officers had tried to ensure that conditions would be attached to any permission to achieve the design quality (landscaping, renewables and biodiversity enhancements etc.) usually required by the Committee.


The Development Manager said that details of the suggested conditions could be provided.  It was the usual practice for the Council to put forward a list of suggested conditions to be attached should an application be approved at appeal, but they were not always accepted by the Inspector.


RESOLVED:  That the report be noted.
