Additional documents:


As the Applicant’s Legal Representative had indicated prior to the meeting that an adjournment would be requested, due to the Applicant having been unable to attend in person, the Chairman asked if the Applicant’s Representative wished to speak first.


The Applicant’s Representative began reading a statement from the Applicant, which set out the reasons for the Applicant’s disappointment that local residents had objected to the application. The Chairman interrupted this statement, as the statement was not with reference to a potential adjournment, and asked if an adjournment had been requested. The Applicant’s Representative responded that the Applicant now wished to withdraw the application. The Chairman proceeded to confirm the withdrawal and that members of the public who had wished to speak were happy with such a withdrawal without speaking. These confirmations were provided.


RESOLVED – That it be noted that the application has been withdrawn by the applicant.
