The Chairman introduced the second planning application, number 143270 for the construction of manege with 3no. lighting columns on land at 9 Laughton Road, Blyton, Gainsborough. The Officer explained that, since the publication of the report, two further responses had been received. He confirmed that Lincolnshire County Council Minerals and Waste Team raised no objections regarding the impact on mineral resources and Lincolnshire County Council Highways raised no objections to the impact on the public highway. With no registered speakers, the Chairman invited comments from Members of the Committee.
There were enquiries regarding the hours of use for the lighting of the area, the materials used for the surface of the manege as well as whether it would be for personal or business use. The Officer confirmed that the hours of lighting would be conditioned for use between 8am and 8pm, the use of shredded carpet was a usual floor covering and no concerns had been raised by the Environment Protection Officer and the use would be considered business use.
With these queries clarified, and having been proposed and seconded, on taking the vote it was unanimously agreed that permission be GRANTED subject to the following conditions.
