    Minutes:

    PROPOSAL: Change of use of church and dwelling to Offices (Use Class B1) together with cladding to front elevation and alterations to fenestration

     

    Councillor Jaye-Jones left the Chamber.

     

    Speaking as ward councillor was Councillor Bambridge.

     

    It was proposed by the Chairman and seconded by Councillor Tomlinson:

     

    “THAT the officer’s recommendation be adopted, namely:

     

    ‘That the application be REFUSED for the following reasons:

     

    1  The applicant has failed to satisfactorily demonstrate that the community use is no longer needed in the area, or that suitably located alternative accommodation for community use will be provided, and as such the development is contrary to Thanet Local Plan Policy CF1 and paragraph 70 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

     

     2  No assessment has been made of the availability and suitability of sites in the main town centres, edge of centre locations or other out of centre sites and the application is, therefore, contrary to the provisions of paragraph 24 of the National Planning Policy Framework which requires a sequential approach in site selection for main town centre uses.’”

     

    Further to debate, the motion was declared LOST.

     

    Then, it was proposed by Councillor Ashbee and seconded by Councillor Tomlinson:

     

    That the application be APPROVED for the following reason:

     

    “That the economic benefits outweigh the policy objections to the loss of the community facility and the provision of a town centre use in this location.”

     

    Upon being put to the vote, the motion was declared CARRIED.

     

    Councillor Jaye-Jones returned to the Chamber.
