During the debate, one Member referred to the Geo-Environmental report undertaken in February 2016 and noted that basic protection measures had been requested in the building design to mitigate any potential contamination from radon. He sought assurance that sufficient consideration had been given to this in the application. The Case Officer confirmed that a ground contamination assessment had been undertaken and no specific conditions had been required as a result of this assessment. However, the Committee requested that an additional condition be included in the planning permission to address this concern. The Case Officer agreed to include a condition relating to contaminated land (condition 6 below).
It was proposed, seconded and agreed that the application be approved for the summary of reasons set out in the case officer’s report, subject also to the following conditions:
