The Interim Development Management Team Leader presented Planning Application SL/2019/0146. He explained that the Planning Committee had resolved to grant planning permission for the application in June 2019 and that the decision to grant permission was subject to the signing of a Section 106 Agreement which would deal with the provision and maintenance of three waste receptacles. The Planning Officer informed Members that negotiations for the proposed location, alongside the adjacent canal, had not been achievable and that the developer had proposed to locate the three receptacles within the car park of the neighbouring Booths store. The application had been brought back to Members for them to consider if the proposed alternative location was acceptable.


The Interim Development Management Team Leader responded to questions raised by Members.


Members expressed disappointment that negotiations to locate the bins at the canal side had been unsuccessful. Members agreed that it was an acceptable alternative location.


A motion to approve the application was proposed and seconded and a vote was taken on the motion, during which all Planning Committee Members confirmed that they had, without interruption heard the full presentation and discussion on the item and it was


RESOLVED – that the application be granted subject to:-
