Proposal:       Removal of Condition Nos 1 and 2 of planning permission APP/18/0116 relating to Cypress Leylandii planting.


The site was viewed given a request by a Ward Councillor that this application be determined by the Development Management Committee.


The Working Party received a written report by the Head of Planning, which identified the following key considerations:


(i)         principle of the removal of conditions 1 and 2;


(ii)        arboricultural considerations;


(iii)       sustainability;


(iv)       impact upon the character and appearance of the area; and


(v)        impact upon residential amenity


The Working Party viewed the site, the subject of the application, to assess whether there were any additional matters that should be considered by the Development Management Committee.
