Update from the Development Manager

 

Minutes:

The Committee noted the Development Manager’s report.  The Development Manager drew Members attention to two appeals.  The first related to an appeal that had been allowed for application 22/2030/FUL – Exmouth Beach Queens Drive, Exmouth.  The Inspector determined that the construction of a single storey flexible office/community hub building would not have an adverse impact on the surrounding area.  The second related to application 23/0298/FUL – Greendale Farm Shop NHS Drive Through Vaccination Centre, Sidmouth Road, Farringdon.  The Inspector had dismissed the appeal on accessibility and landscape reasons and because the NHS had not demonstrated an overriding need to be sited in this unsustainable location.
