In presenting the report, the Senior Planning Officer advised the Committee that with regard to land ownership issues, a number of representations had been received that week.  To clarify, it was considered that the boundary wall to the front of the proposed houses was within the application outline, and there was no reason to doubt what was stated on the ownership certificate after reviewing Land Registry titles sent by the agent.  It was not the responsibility of the Officers to form a definitive view as to whether the ownership certificate was correct or not, but on the face of it, it did appear to be correct.
