A Committee member proposed adding three further conditions to those listed in the report. The suggested additional conditions were:

 

·       Limiting the site to 1 motorboat

·       Limiting the use of the site to water skiing and wake boarding

·       Linking the use of onsite caravans to the use of the lake and the water skiing and wakeboarding activity

 

It was noted that limiting the site to one motorboat and the use of the site to water skiing and wakeboarding was included in the application. Some concern was expressed about the enforceability of linking the use of onsite caravans to the use of the lake. A vote was taken on adding the conditions noted above to those listed in the report, which was lost.

 

It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the summary of reasons set out in the case officer’s report together with the ongoing conditions.
