The main issues raised by Members for further consideration prior to submission of a planning application were:

 

·         Consideration of the flexible allocation of the parking spaces proposed to the rear of the mixed use block to the front, depending upon the division of the non-residential floorspace on the ground floor.

·         The applicant was invited to fully justify the height of the proposal within any future planning application.

·         The need to provide good quality landscaping which is robust and that would have longevity.

·         Further detail should be provided to show how the lay-by to the front of the site would be managed and whether its overall length could be increased.

·         Ensure that full details of the sustainability credentials of the building are provided within any future planning application.
