    Members requested that it be recorded that the proposal to approve the application was made with reluctance.

     

    It was proposed and seconded that the application be approved for the reasons set out in the case officer’s report and subject to the conditions set out on pages 56 to 59 of the case officer’s report and subject to the signing of a Section 106 Agreement which would secure
