It was proposed by Councillor Janice Hanson and seconded by Councillor Mel Guilding:

 

“That Planning Permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in the Committee Report, with amendments to conditions 3 and 6, and with an additional condition for drainage.”

 

Upon being put to the vote, 3 Councillors voted in favour of the proposition, 7 against, with 5 abstentions, whereupon the Chair declared the proposal to be rejected.

 

It was then proposed by Councillor Sandra Thornberry and seconded by Councillor Joyce Pritchard, contrary to the officer’s statement:

 

“That the application be refused as it is not a sustainable development on the grounds that it lacks an affordable housing provision and an education provision.”

 

This proposal was withdrawn with the agreement of Councillors Thornberry and Pritchard.

 

It was then proposed by Councillor Mandy Bannon and seconded by Councillor Sandra Thornberry:

 

“That the application be deferred to allow officers to review the potential for noise emissions from the overhead powerlines on the amenity of the proposed dwellings and to review the planning (tilted) balance in light of the Council’s 5 year housing land supply position, and the development proposal’s lack of affordable housing provision and the lack of an education contribution.”

 

Upon being put to the vote, 14 Councillors voted in favour of the proposition, with none against, and 1 abstention, whereupon the Chair declared the proposal to be carried.

 

Resolved:

 

That the application be deferred to allow officers to review the potential for noise emissions from the overhead powerlines on the amenity of the proposed dwellings and to review the planning (tilted) balance in light of the Council’s 5 year housing land supply position, and the development proposal’s lack of affordable housing provision and the lack of an education contribution.
