Recommend Approval
 
The Committee spoke about the letter from Tendring District Council concerning the appeal by Mr M Davy – land opposite 75 Tower Street, Lime Street, Brightlingsea.  After discussion it was agreed to write to the Secretary of State stating that

“The Town Council thinks this is unsuitable use of the land and it is out of keeping with the surrounding area.  Lime Street is unsuitable for vehicles other than small cars/van in the summer only.  The applicant has not complied with the conditions set in previous approved applications.  Planning gain sought is not considered to be sufficiently beneficial, Lime Street bye-laws do not permit this type of use.  We also endorse the reasons for refusal by Tendring District Council.
Brightlingsea Town Council would like a Ward Member to represent the Town Council at any planning Inquiry, and we appoint Councillor Janet Russell as our representative.”
