Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Senior Planning Officer regarding the demolition of existing buildings and erection of a Lidl store (Use Class A1) with associated car park and landscaping (for copy see file of Minutes).

 

The Team Leader – Strategic Team provided a detailed presentation which included photographs of the site and plans of the proposed layout. It was noted that the application had been deferred from the last meeting to enable further discussions to take place regarding options for the retention of the entrance archway to the former Victory Pit. He reported that following discussions between Lidl, Elected Members and Officers, it had now been agreed that the front façade of the archway be retained, but located in a new position on site. He proceeded to run through the material changes in the report and conditions.

 

Councillor J Brown, local member, addressed the committee to speak on behalf of local residents. She reported that she was happy that an agreement had now been reached with Lidl as detailed in Condition 4 and the outcome was exactly what had been hoped for by residents.

 

She went on to thank Lidl for their extremely positive approach to negotiations and for being so accommodating. She further extended her thanks to Officers. On the basis of the addition of Condition 4 she therefore supported the proposals.

Councillor Zair SECONDED the proposal.

 

Following a vote being taken it was

 

Resolved: That the application be APPROVED subject to the conditions as listed in the report.
