Report C/16/102 set out the detail and nature of a planning application to be submitted to the local planning authority for the development of land in the ownership of Shepway District Council at Princes Parade, Hythe.
During the course of discussion Members of Cabinet highlighted some concerns and in the light of these, stated that should planning permission be granted then Cabinet should be given the opportunity to consider the full business case and financial appraisal, prior to any building work proceeding, subject to Cabinet’s authority to do so. Cllr Monk therefore proposed that in order to address these points an additional recommendation be added to Cabinet’s decision on this matter.
Proposed by Councillor Monk

1. To receive and note Report C/16/102.

3. That, at the appropriate time, a legally binding covenant be drawn up to protect the proposed parkland and open space from any future development proposals not directly related to the site’s leisure objectives.
