Planning Applications for new Crematoria - Advice for Members of the Planning Committee in relation to the decisions pdf icon PDF 204 KB


The Committee received a report outlining the legal framework within which the determinations of the three planning applications for the new crematoria within the Borough were to be made.


It was noted that these applications were for a rare form of development and have been submitted for consideration in close succession. The report sought to guide members generally as to a lawful approach to reaching a decision on each of the applications before them.


Details of the legal framework were outlined within paragraphs 6 to 13 of the report.


Members were also advised as to how the meeting would be proceeding and advice was presented verbally with regard to lobbying material from applicants received by members prior to the meeting. Members were reminded that they were able to read materials sent to them in relation to the applications but must have ensured that they came to the meeting with an open mind, and must have heard all of the information presented to them at the meeting before coming to a decision on each application.


            RESOLVED that the report be noted.
