It was reported that at the time that the committee report was written, the applicant had verbally agreed to make a number of changes to the application to meet some of the objections from residents.

Following debate and a question to the officers with regard to the proposed floodlighting it was:

 

Resolved:  That subject to the amendments to conditions 2, 7 and 9 as set out in the Update Sheet at Item 4 of the agenda, planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in the report to the committee.
