Minutes:

All Members except Councillors Perry and Spooner stated that they had been lobbied.

 

The Committee considered the report and the urgent update report of the Head of Planning and Development.

 

In presenting the report, the Principal Planning Officer advised the Committee that since the urgent update report was published on 25 September 2018, discussions had taken place with KCC Archaeology who had confirmed that they did not consider further information was needed at this stage and that condition 12 of the outline permission which required further archaeological work to be carried out on the Phase 4 site prior to commencement of development was sufficient.

 

Mr Tyman, an objector, Mrs Poletti of the New Allington Action Group, Mr Mendez, for the applicant, and Councillor Mrs Robertson (Visiting Member) addressed the meeting.

 

RESOLVED:  That consideration of this application be deferred to:

 

·  Examine in more detail the impact of vehicular access Options 2 and 5 through the woodland taking into account the visual impact of the works and any works necessary to meet health and safety requirements, including lighting; and

 

·  Ask whether further renewable energy measures can be provided in this Phase of the development and whether tunnels can be provided under roads to facilitate the safe passage of wildlife.
