Update from the Development Manager

 

Minutes:

The Committee noted the planning statistics report setting out seven appeal decisions, of which five had been dismissed and two allowed.

 

The Development Manager drew Members’ attention to the two appeals allowed.  The first related to planning application 20/0933/OUT – Land South of Underhill Close, Lympstone.  The Inspector determined that the proposal would not harm the Green Wedge in relation to its character and appearance or encroachment towards Exmouth and was of suitable appearance in a sustainable location.  The second related to planning application 20/2710/FUL – 2 Brooklyn, Stowford, Sidmouth.  The Inspector determined that the proposal was in a sustainable location and that in the absence of harm to the character and appearance of the area and the AONB the appeal was allowed.

 

Finally, Members’ noted that although an Enforcement Notice issued to Thorn Park Family Golf Centre, Salcombe Regis, had been quashed due to it being incorrectly served, it would be correctly served to the appellant again.

Land off Long Lane.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered the report that sought Members approval for the formal public consultation process for the Local Development Order (LDO) on Land off Long Lane.  The Development Manager advised it was one of four sites to form the East Devon Enterprise Zone and would facilitate a maximum of 26,000 sq.m. for new commercial and employment development.  He briefly outlined the purpose of the LDO which, if approved, allowed development work to be completed without the need for full planning permission therefore acting as a tool to speed up the planning process.  Members noted that following consultation a final version of the LDO would be brought back to Committee for Members to consider.

 

The Committee were supportive of the detailed report and comments included:

·         Clarification sought on whether other LDOs had been approved in the district.  The Development Manager confirmed there was no other LDOs relating to a particular site but that there was one other LDO in place to carry out infrastructure works to district heating.

·         Support was shown that the LDO would be a step forward to allow commercial businesses to grow to create much needed jobs in the area.

·         Reassured that sustainability was detailed as a key aspect of the development

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Of approval that the formal public consultation process for the LDO on Land off Long Lane, with delegated authority to be given to the Development Manager to finalise and to agree the consultation draft of the LDO.

 

DECISION:

The recommendation was approved by a Senior Officer.  The Senior Officer Decision Notice is listed above under Additional Documents.
