Minutes:

Councillor Joshua Chapman addressed the Committee.

 

The Committee RESOLVED to DEFER consideration of the application to enable Officers to have further discussions with the applicant about the opportunity to refine the design approach to better reflect the context and history of the site in the Town Centre.

 

In bringing a report back to Committee, Members were keen to understand the proximity of the development to schemes which had already been approved, with specific focus upon light and anti-social behaviour.  Members were also keen to understand the mechanics of the affordable housing offer and the provision itself.

 

The voting to defer consideration of the application was carried by six votes in favour to two abstentions.  Councillors Darvill and Williamson abstained from voting.
