For noting

No interest to declare under the Code of Conduct for Councillors, however following Cllr Crerar’s show of support for the work being undertaken at the Southwood Country Park at the Full Council meeting it was noted this had not been considered as pre-determination and would not impact on his judgement of the application to be discussed at the meeting.

Minutes:

The Minutes of the Meeting held on 10th November, 2021 were approved and signed as a correct record of the proceedings, subject to the following:

 

·         It was noted that, since the last meeting of the Development Management Committee, it had come to light that there had been an error in the approved minutes of the Development Management Committee held on 15th September, 2021. The record stated that Cllr Mitchell had been absent, when in fact he was present - as evidenced on the webcast,  the minutes of the meeting on 15th September, 2021 would be amended accordingly.

 

·         As a result, it was noted that, further to the Committee’s discussion at the meeting on 10th November, Cllr Mitchell had not been absent from three consecutive meetings of the Committee, and his membership of the Committee should remain unchanged.
