Cllr. Roy Denney does not consider to have any interest in the application over and above any other resident of Glenfield but as he represents Glenfield ward and he knows the applicants there could be a perception of bias. He has had regular meetings with the applicants since the start of these developments representing the Parish on a liaison committee. He has a completely open mind and will listen to the presentations and decide on the issue before it is put to a vote.

Variation to The Blaby District Council (Willoughby Road, Countesthorpe No.2) Tree Preservation Order 2017 pdf icon PDF 1 MB

To consider the report of the Planning and Strategic Growth Group Manager (enclosed).

Minutes:

Considered- Report of the Planning and Strategic Growth Group Manager.

 

Variation to The Blaby District Council (Willoughby Road, Countesthorpe No.2) Tree Preservation Order 2017.

 

Public Speaking

 

Pursuant to Part 4, Section 7 of the Council’s Constitution in

relation to public rights of participation in planning applications, the Chairman

allowed the following to give a 5 minute presentation:

 

·         David Carter – Agent on behalf of applicant.

 

 

 

DECISION

 

That the Variation to the Blaby District Council (Willoughby Road, Countesthorpe No.2) Tree Preservation Order 2017 to remove trees T20 to T38 from the Order be confirmed.

 

Reasons:

 

1.    Having given consideration to the representation received regarding the Tree Preservation Order, it is considered that there is sufficient grounds to confirm the variation to the order.

 

2.    The trees T20 to T38 being removed from the Order are not considered to contribute significantly to the character of the immediate and surrounding area and have limited public amenity value. In addition it is considered that there is no public benefit in enforcing their continuous replanting as it has been established that replacements are unlikely to successfully establish, and there are no other suitable alternative locations for replacements.
