Statement on the adjourning of Planning Committee (23 November)
Last night’s Planning Committee was adjourned due to unforeseen technical difficulties of a complex nature.
This unusual problem, which became apparent at a late stage, required specialist support to rectify, which was not available at short notice. This meant that the committee wasn't able to be viewed online and there were related issues with the sound system, which means the debate would not have been clearly audible. Given that there were items of interest to a significant number of people, the decision was made to postpone the meeting. This is not a decision that was taken lightly but in the interest of transparency for all, including those who could not attend in person. We recognise the effort it takes to attend a committee and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
To enable those interested to be able to view this committee in person and over live stream, the items due to be discussed will go to Planning Committee on Wednesday 1 December at 7.30pm. The updated papers can be viewed on our website.
