The Chairman and Councillors Adkinson, Bartlett, Boughton, Round and

Wilby stated that they had been lobbied.

The Committee considered the report and the urgent update report of the

Head of Planning and Development.

The Principal Planning Officer said that KCC Flood and Water Management

had now commented on the information provided for the proposed

drainage strategy, which detailed the use of Permavoids under the access

road and hard surfaces, and considered it to be acceptable in principle

subject to the attachment of conditions requiring:

 

         The submission of a sustainable surface water drainage scheme for

the site;

         The submission of an operation and maintenance manual for the

proposed sustainable drainage scheme detailing how the scheme

would be implemented and maintained; and

         The submission of a Verification Report demonstrating that the surface

water drainage system had been installed correctly and would be able

to achieve objectives in dealing with surface water.

 

The recommendation remained unchanged subject to the deletion of

condition 7 relating to surface water drainage and the attachment of the

conditions relating to surface water drainage as recommended by KCC

Flood and Water Management.

 

Mr Stroud addressed the meeting on behalf of the applicant.
