Comment:

 

Cllr Woods disclosed a non-pecuniary interest, for transparency purposes as a Ward Cllr for Fordingbridge, Godshill & Hyde.  He reported that he had not been involved in the application or expressed any view and therefore concluded there were no grounds under common law to prevent him from remaining in the meeting to speak and to vote.

 

The Case Officer reported some amendments to the conditions which had been included in the update note circulated prior to the meeting.

 

The Case Officer also reported the following typographical errors:

 

·         Page 97 of the agenda pack, fourth paragraph under the heading Ecological impact, first line, should read “slow worms and bats”;

·         Page 103 of the agenda pack, first paragraph, third line from the bottom.  Parking should be added after the word cycle;

·         Page 106 of the agenda pack, first paragraph under the Section 106 heading, penultimate line, the word ‘with’ to be replaced with ‘and’.

 

A member of the Committee noted that the proposed development was close to the International Dark Skies Reserve and that this had been taken in account as part of the officer assessment of the application.  This however, had not been reflected in the lighting design strategy condition, which only cited bats and human health.  It was therefore felt this should be included.  The Case Officer reported that it was a relevant issue and it could be included as an additional bullet point (d) to condition 37, “to demonstrate how the impact of lighting on the International Dark Skies could be mitigated” and also added into the reasons. 

 

Decision:

 

Delegated Authority be given to the Service Manager (Development Management) to GRANT PERMISSION subject to:
