He advised that the Head of Planning was recommending approval of the application for the reasons detailed within the written report.

In addition, concerns were raised by the Committee regarding potential issues with water supplies in the locality.

 

The Senior Development Management Officer (South) responded to the issues raised by the Local Member and the Committee.
