DIRECTION BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE:  On 18th October the Council received notification from the Government Office for the South West that the First Secretary of State has issued a Direction for the Council not to grant planning permission for this application without specific authorisation.  The Direction has been issued to enable the Secretary of State to consider whether he should direct that the application should be referred to him for his determination (i.e. whether it should be "called in").  The notification specifically states that the Direction does not prevent the Council from considering the application, forming a view as its merits or, if so minded, refusing permission.

      In order to reflect this recent change in circumstances, the recommendation is amended as follows:

      Minded to PERMIT.

      A. That the First Secretary of State be informed that the Committee are minded to PERMIT the application.

      B. Subject to the First Secretary of State not wishing to determine the application, authorise the Head of Planning Services to PERMIT, subject to the conditions set out in the main report and as amended below. 

        SECTION 106 AGREEMENT: The applicant has, in consultation with your officers, prepared a unilateral undertaking which relates to the preparation and implementation of the Ecology and Landscape Management Plan. As the Council is not party to any covenants in the legal agreement it is considered to be appropriate that in this case the legal agreement is in the form of a unilateral undertaking by the applicants.
