Declarations of Interest


Councillor J Elmer noted he had submitted an objection to Item 5b, DM/21/01611/FPA - Apollo Bingo, Front Street, New Durham, Durham and therefore he would withdraw from the meeting and take no part in the consideration of that application.


Councillor C Marshall noted, in respect of Item 5a, DM/20/03538/FPA - Land to the west of Poplar Tree Garden Centre, Hall Lane, Shincliffe, he had met with the applicant in his former role as Cabinet Member for Economic Development.  He added, however, that he had no preconceived opinion on the application and would consider the application as the Committee heard evidence during the meeting.


The Chair, Councillor D Freeman noted in respect of Item 5b, that he was a member of the City of Durham Trust, however he was not a Trustee and had not been party to their submission in objection to the application.
