Item 1 Freshford Mill, Rosemary Lane, Freshford, Bathavon South - The Officers gave a presentation about this site and explained the reasons for their recommendation to authorise the Head of Planning Services to Permit, subject to the First Secretary of State not wishing to determine the application, the change of use together with alterations to provide 21 no. residential units, provision of improved access, landscaping, parking and associated demolition.
