These changes have submitted to address the comments of the Council’s Waste and Recycling team as presented in the Committee report. This revised plan will be shown to members this evening for consideration and outlined by the case officer, with condition 2 updated in the officer recommendation to reflect this plan, reference GM28-PO1 Rev J.
