A report from the Head of Development Management on all delegated planning decisions since the last meeting of the Planning Control Committee.

Minutes:

A report from the Head of Development Management was submitted listing all recent Planning application decisions made by Officers using delegated powers.  Councillor Hayes asked for further clarification in relation to the delegated decision in respect of planning application 64145, The Grant Arms, 11 Market Place, Ramsbottom. The proposal included the removal of condition 7 to allow the removal of the horizontal sign on the frontage of the building, contrary to a decision made by the Planning Control Committee at a previous meeting, to retain to sign.  Mr Marno explained that following discussions with the owner and the local heritage society, it was agreed that the current sign was modern and held no historical value. Other proposals have now been put forward to promote the history of the building which the two parties are currently working on.
