1.  Application - 20/02162/OUT:Outline planning application for the demolition of three dwellings, out-buildings and related structures and construction of commercial and industrial units including mezzanine floorspace (use class B8) with ancillary offices (use class B1), associated infrastructure works (including parking and landscaping), and full details of site levels, drainage and diversion of underground pipe-line.

The Committee acknowledge the importance of providing employment especially in the current climate and the benefits that would bring in terms of economic growth to the Borough but disappointment was expressed that the proposal was in the wrong location.
