Members were informed that Sport England should have been consulted with regard to the loss of part of the playing field but, due to an error, had not been. However, they had objected to the previous application and it was likely, therefore, that they would object to this one also. It was requested that should Members resolve to grant planning permission, delegated authority be given to the Chief Planning Officer to grant planning permission following notification to Sport England of the Committee resolution and subsequent referral to the Secretary of State if required.

 

Proposed by Councillor David Wimble

Seconded by Councillor Clive Goddard and

 

Resolved: That delegated authority be given to the Chief Planning Officer to grant planning permission subject to the conditions set out at the end of the report and to agree and finalise the wording of the conditions and add any other conditions that he considers necessary, following notification to Sport England of the Committee resolution and subsequent referral to the Secretary of State if required.
