Coventry House, Barfield Close, Winchester, SO23 9SQ

Case number: 21/01727/FUL


At the invitation of the Chair, the Service Lead: Legal addressed the committee to provide the following announcement:


“As members will be aware, the application has been accompanied by a number of detailed technical appraisals. In response to previous comments by objectors, the Council on last Friday, 17 September 2021, published a number of updated papers to deal with those points.


At 10.34 this morning, the Council received an email from one of the objector’s solicitors asserting that they had had insufficient time to consider the Council’s responses, and in addition other objectors would also be in a similar position and unable to articulate these to the planning committee.


Whilst the Council does not necessarily agree with this, the Council has concluded, in an abundance of caution, that in the interests of fairness to objectors, it is not appropriate to proceed with this matter today, and the application will be deferred.”





That the application be deferred for consideration at a later date to be confirmed.
