Minutes:

The Committee considered the written report and recommendation form the Head of Planning Services to grant permission.


The Committee was addressed by the following deputees:

 

(1)  Mr James Mitchell, who supported the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

a.    The proposal was sympathetic to the character of the area by way of it’s size, design and landscaping features. This had been achieved by reducing the height of the building to single storey and using materials with a natural appearance.

b.    The Landscaping proposals included planting new trees and flora, further adding to the screening and sympathetic design of the proposal

c.    The proposal provided choice, convenience and quality services for local residents.

d.    If approved there would be a significant positive impact on the local economy of Hayling Island, as it would result in a £6m investment and creation of 40 local jobs.

e.    More local facilities for the residents of Hayling Island would create a significant decrease in pressures faced by the Highway network as a high number of residents would be able to shop more locally.

f.     There was significant public support to the proposals and it was perceive that the majority of local residents were in favour of the proposal.

 

In response to questions raised by the committee, the deputee advised that:

·         Solar PV panels were not a viable option for the building, however the proposal included other renewable energy efficiency measures.

i.      The applicant should seek to develop brown field sites and as this was green field it was inappropriate for development

(3)  Councillor Clare Satchwell, who supported the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

As set out in appendix A attached to these minutes

(4)  Councillor Andrew Lenaghan, who supported the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

j.      There had been a significant level of support from members of the public regarding the proposal.

k.    While the site had environmental value, the retention of the green features within the landscaping proposal meant it was still acceptable in planning terms

l.      The convenience and local choice for residents was of great importance

m.   If approved the proposal would ease pressures faced by the highway network in the local area.

(5)  Councillor Michael Wilson, who objected to the Officer’s recommendation for the following reasons:

 

As set out in Appendix B, attached to these minutes.

 

In response to questions from the committee, Cllr Wilson advised that:
