(2)  That the Planning Board declare that it was not favourably disposed towards application RB2019/0539 and that it be refused for the following reasons:-



The Local Planning Authority considers that the site represents an irreplaceable amenity and as such its loss cannot be compensated for. Accordingly the proposal is contrary to Local Plan Policy SP38 ‘Protecting Green Space’ which indicates that such sites will be protected from future development.



The Local Planning Authority also considers that in the absence of an up to date Playing Pitch Strategy there is insufficient evidence to demonstrate that the proposed mitigation is sufficient to provide replacement sporting facilities of an equivalent or better provision in terms of quantity and quality in accordance with Local Plan Policy SP38 ‘Protecting Green Space’ and paragraph 97 of the NPPF.


(3)  That, application RB2020/1346 be granted for the reasons adopted by Members at the meeting, subject to the relevant conditions listed in the submitted report, an amendment to Condition 25 to now read:-


“The development shall be carried out in accordance with the Written Scheme of Investigation by PCAS Archaeology dated February 2021 unless otherwise agreed by the Local Planning Authority, and the development shall not be brought into use until the Local Planning Authority has confirmed in writing that the requirements of the WSI have been fulfilled or alternative timescales agreed.”


(4)  That, application RB2020/1655 be granted for the reasons adopted by Members at the meeting.


(Councillor Sheppard vacated the Chair and left the meeting prior to application RB2020/1655 was discussed and Councillor Williams (Vice-Chair) assumed the Chair for that application until the end of the meeting)
