Case Officer Update:      

A correction to the report in that the first para of the analysis included reference to policies CS7 and DP1 that should be removed along with ‘emerging’ in relation to the JLP; The application has been readvertised and the site notice expires today, and in addition, not all drawings submitted had been on the website for the requisite period of 14 days, so the officer recommendation is amended to take account of this; amendment to condition 9 to state in consultation with the parish council; parish council comments on the revised scheme were read out to the committee and six further letters had been received from local residents raising points including no updated engineering drawings received, overbearing impact on neighbours, plots 1 to 13 densely packed, higher density scheme than Phase 1, parking for plots 1-13 was tight, wall shown south of unit 28 on Barratt’s land and not within control of applicant; provision of estate railing around play area would force people to walk on a road with no pavements; no energy saving proposals; foul services should connect into the A379 and not into the Orchard Road and Daisy Park sewer; consultation period expires 19 June after committee decision; overlooking to neighbours and possible loss of light to neighbours
