The Planning Officer gave the committee members an update on the application as two further letters had been received, one in regard to conflicts with the plans. The Officer explained that revised plans had been received and he was

confident these were correct.

 

In discussion Members raised the issue of drainage of water off the site. The Officer stated this would be addressed within the conditions. Concerned was raised on the timeline for the landscaping scheme and it was confirmed that it would be conditioned that planting would take place at the start of the next planting season. A query over a matter raised by Bratton Clovelly Parish Council in the report in regard to the close proximity of the development to a Listed Building was answered by the Planning Officer who confirmed development had to be carefully considered within legislation. He said that the Council’s Conservation Officer had been consulted and it was considered the proposal would not have an impact on the neighbouring Listed Building.
