    The Planning Applications Manager outlined the following update:

     

    POINT OF INFORMATION

     

    For agenda item 4e - A05 Land adjacent to no.11 Manston Road, Ramsgate, an informative is suggested in relation to ensuring that a side access road is not obstructed during the course of construction. Officer propose to remove this informative and replace this as a planning condition, which would be condition 11 on any decision notice to approve the development. The condition would state:

     

    “The existing vehicular access road adjacent to the eastern boundary of the site shall be safeguarded and maintained free of obstruction during the course of construction of the development.

     

    GROUND:

    In the interest of highways safety.”

     

    The officer recommendation for the application to approve subject to conditions is therefore updated to reflect the addition of this condition.”
