"4. the Executive confirms that single dwellings are small-scale developments for the purposes of the delegation scheme and fall within delegated decisions to officers."

The Committee decided to endorse the Executive's decision on the understanding that the Executive would put it forward as a recommendation to the next Council meeting so that the Council could, if it wished, review the decision, but noted that it would operate in the interim period.

The Committee also asked the officers to provide more specific quantitative information about the effects of the redefinition of the delegation scheme to help the Council to review the decision. This should cover the number of additional applications which could be determined by the Officers and the effect on performance indicators.


RESOLVED that the Executive be recommended to reconsider their original decision regarding the delegation of small-scale development applications taking into account the observations of the Environment and Leisure Overview and Scrutiny Committee.



The meeting concluded at 7.14 pm
