136. Clerk’s Report

136.1 The Gladman Developments application to build at the top end of Eldon Road had been rejected by the refused by the TVBC Southern Area Planning Committee SAPC). At the meeting, Cllr Brock had presented the Parish Council’s views to the Committee and reasons why the application lacked Council’s support. Those present were pleased to note that the SAPC was of the opinion that firm grounds for rejection existed. There was general agreement that the Gladman consultation had been limited in its scope and only targeted at those dwellings adjacent and that the information on the probable increase in traffic volume was questionable given the time of day the survey had been undertaken. The Chairman had written to the protest group recommending they undertook their own traffic census at different times of day to supplement any further action that might be taken on the application.
