In accordance with the Council’s Public Speaking Protocol for Planning Committee, Mr G Welton (Applicant Agent), Mr I Rowe (Objector) and Councillor T Combellack (Ward Councillor) addressed the Committee.



Members of the Committee expressed concern about the increase in traffic and the impact this would have on cyclists and pedestrians, also the lack of a regular bus service for employees working at the service station. Members of the committee were also concerned about surface water management and the impact of extra water flowing to the Fairham brook. It was proposed that two additional conditions be added one relating to the need for a travel plan and the second for a surface water management plan which included a review of the efficiency of the surface water drainage system every 5 years. The Committee also requested an informative, liaison group be set up with local residents.
