RESULTS OF CONSULTATION AND PUBLICITY(Edit)

No consultation due to the application being for a non-material amendment and not required by the legislation

CONSIDERATION OF PLANNING ISSUES(Edit)

Permission is sought for a variation to planning permission R-2020/0318/FFM-Officer Report to amend conditions 2 and 3.

The main issues are, firstly in the context of the development, does the

  • variation of the conditions constitute a non-material amendment and secondly
  • is the variation acceptable in the context of the scheme.

The variation of the conditions seeks to vary the dig depths proposed across the site to allow for the remediation and preparation works to be carried out in their entirety. Discussions have taken place with the applicant and the Local Authority on the proposed changes in advance of the application being received and no objections were raised to the proposed changes given the principle of the works that have already been established at the site and the other conditions that are attached to the decision.

The variation of the conditions is not considered to compromise the delivery of the scheme with regard to the local environment and does not raise any new issues with regard to the site and its surroundings.

The variation of the conditions is not considered to result in a material alteration to the proposed development as the resulting development platform will remain unaltered, while consideration will still be given to the relevant details relating to the works through the discharge of the other conditions attached to the approval.

CONCLUSION(Edit)

Taking the contents of the report into consideration the proposed variation is considered acceptable as a non-material amendment. The application is therefore recommended for approval with the reworded conditions being proposed.

RECOMMENDATION(Edit)

Taking into account the content of the report the recommendation is to:

GRANT NON MATERIAL AMENDMENT to allow variations to the wording conditions 2 and 3
