The planning officer noted that a condition could not be included that sought to specify requirements for the public right of way, which would require consultation with LCC, but the Committee’s comments and suggestions could be incorporated in an advisory note encouraging the developer to investigate further and retain such objects.

In respect of affordable housing, the developer would contribute an amount of £258,572  to off-site extra-care affordable housing. This would be used as a contribution towards properties for the elderly on smaller sites that enabled independent living with a level of care.
