Minutes:

Report RES13175

 

The Committee agreed to consider an urgent request for a dispensation from Councillor Russell Jackson that would enable him to speak at the meeting of the Development Control Committee that evening on the planning application for 49 Shortlands Road, Shortlands, Bromley.  Councillor Jackson owned a flat at the adjoining property (number 51) and had submitted objections to the application. Although he was a member of the Development Control Committee, because of his prejudicial interest he was not intending to take part in the debate, but he did request to be able to speak in objection to the application and elaborate on some of his concerns.  The planning application also affected Councillor Lydia Buttinger – although she had not submitted an application for dispensation to speak at the meeting the Urgency Committee considered that it would be helpful to clarify that she should be allowed to remain in the room but not participate while the planning application was considered.   

 

RESOLVED that the application for a dispensation from Councillor Russell Jackson to be allowed to speak at Development Control Committee on the planning application for 49 Shortlands Road, Shortlands, Bromley be granted unconditionally and, for the avoidance of doubt, Councillor Lydia Buttinger be permitted to remain in the room but not participate during the Development Control Committee’s consideration of the planning application.
