The Committee was informed by the Principal Planning Officer that Members who were present on the site visit the previous day had not viewed the application site.


The Chair was of the view that a site visit was required before determining the application and moved that the application be deferred. Councillor P Jopling seconded the motion.


The Committee discussed whether it should proceed to determine the application, or whether deferral was appropriate to allow Members to visit the site.


Members noted that a site visit was not mandatory, and considered whether there was sufficient information to reach a decision based upon the report and visual presentation by the Principal Planning Officer.


Before proceeding to a vote the Committee sought the advice of the Senior Lawyer, Regulatory and Enforcement in private.


Upon a vote being taken it was Resolved that the application be deferred.
