The Chairman to move that the attached report be considered on grounds of urgency to enable the request for a dispensation from Cllr Nicholas Bennett to be determined before the meeting of Plans Sub-Committee No. 4 on  17th July 2014.

 

Minutes:

Report RES14112

 

Members considered a dispensation request from Councillor Nicholas Bennett JP to enable him to speak as a member of the public at the Plans 4 Sub-Committee meeting on 17 July 2014 on a planning application to extend his property at 18 Upper Park Road, Bromley.

 

The Director of Corporate Services clarified that changes made to the Localism Act 2011, made it necessary for Members to seek dispensation to enable them to address a Committee as a member of the public on any planning application in which they had a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest. 

 

Councillor Bosshard had previously been granted dispensation under similar circumstances and therefore supported the application.  It was recommended that Councillor Bennett be permitted to address Members and answer questions, but should not take part in the subsequent discussion or vote.

 

RESOLVED that the application from Councillor Nicholas Bennett JP to be allowed to address the Plans 4 Sub-Committee on 17 July 2014 (and any subsequent meetings on the same case) and answer questions on his application for 18 Upper Park Road, Bromley be granted unconditionally.
