Minutes:

The following declarations were made in the interests of openness:

 

With regard to application number 17/6233C, Councillor R Bailey declared that she had received a telephone message from a Middlewich resident.  She had not spoken to the person concerned and was not conflicted in any way.

 

With regard to application number 17/6233C, Councillor S Pochin declared that she had also been contacted by a Middlewich resident.  She had not discussed the application with him and had suggested that he attended the Planning Committee meeting.

 

With regard to application number 17/6233C, Councillor J Clowes declared that she had received a telephone message from a Middlewich resident.  She had not spoken to the person concerned and had not responded.  Councillor Clowes had also received email correspondence, which she had forwarded to the Chairman and the Head of Development Management.

 

With regard to application number 17/6233C, Councillor B Walmsley declared that she was a member of Middlewich Town Council but that she had not taken part when the application was discussed.  There had been a lot of interest in Middlewich and she had been approached by members of the public, including one of the speakers at the previous meeting, but she had not discussed the application with them.  Some time ago, she had been approached by the developer as part of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.  The plans had changed dramatically since then and there had been no recent contact, so she had not discussed her views.  Councillor Walmsley stated that she retained an open mind and would assess the application on its planning merits.  Councillor Walmsley also declared that she had received email correspondence with respect to the application.

 

With regard to application number 17/6233C, Councillor J Rhodes declared that she had received a telephone message from a Middlewich resident but that she had not spoken to the person concerned.
