    Clarification was sought regarding the wording of the agreed motion for item 4 – Land on the North west and South East Sides of Shottendane Road, Margate.  It was explained that the motion instructed officers to investigate potential reasons for refusal of the application that could be considered by the Committee before making its final decision.  It was noted that it would have been poor practice to refuse the application before considering this information, as decisions must be based upon evidence based reasoning.

     

    Councillor Coleman-Cooke proposed, Councillor Hart seconded and Members agreed that the minutes of the Planning Committee Meeting held on 23 June 2021 be approved and signed by the Chairman.
