Consideration of Planning application to redevelop the Old Mill, Kingham as a 33 bedroomed Hotel and ancillary facilities

Minute No. 04/DCC/2021/22


Councillor Levy advised that a number of Councillors had disagreed with the definition of ‘major development’ in relation to the above application and asked if this could be defined for the future.  Councillor Haine recognised that the wording was unclear and noted that this was for a number of reasons included in the National Planning Policy Framework.


Update on Community Infrastructure Levy

Minute No. 32/CAB/2021/22


Councillor Graham expressed his disappointment that this issue had been left in abeyance for so long and asked if there had been any movement from Government.  Councillor Haine agreed with the frustration felt and explained that the White Paper had been shelved, however, officers were looking at introducing an update in the next few months.


Economic & Social Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Councillor Poskitt advised that she had an amendment to make to the minutes but would raise this at the next meeting.

Councillor Carter requested that the minutes contain more detail and it was agreed to take the comment back to officers.  Further discussion was had on how officers should be referred to in the minutes, by name or role, and officers welcomed any further feedback from Members.
