The construction of an equestrian manège (revised siting) (Mr Peter and Janet Kendall).
The Planning Officer presented Planning Application No. SL/2018/0594 which sought permission for the construction of an equestrian manège, which involved the revised siting of a manège which had been granted planning permission under SL/2017/1134, and the creation/regularisation of a track serving the proposed manège. The Planning Officer advised Members that Planning Application No. SL/2018/0016 had been withdrawn and therefore the application presented to them today was a single application. He displayed photographs and plans which detailed the proposals and drew Members’ attention to Late Representations which had been circulated prior to the meeting and contained additional conditions and he referred to the site visit.
Members gave consideration to surface water drainage and the proposed soakaway and the potential flood risk to other properties in the area. Members considered that a further condition should be added in relation to drainage. In addition the word ‘maintained’ needed to be added to the condition contained within the Late Representations.
