The Committee noted the following future meeting dates:-
(1) The Head of Planning Applications Group reported that the Examination Hearing stage of the Kent Minerals and Waste Plan Early Partial Review had now concluded with some minor modifications being made as a result of the Examination process. These would be subject to public consultation in late 2019 and any views received would be forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate so that the Inspector could consider them in finalising his report. This report was expected in early 2020 which, subject to his views, would allow the Local Plan to be adopted.
(2) The Head of Planning Applications Group then informed the Committee that, following a request made by a member of the public for the Secretary of State to call in the Maidstone Girls Grammar School and the Maplesden Noakes School, Maidstone applications (Minutes 20/47 and 20/48), the Secretary of State had decided not to do so.

(1) The Head of Planning Applications Group informed the Committee of correspondence from the Local Member, Mr M J Whiting raising no objection to the application provided that the conditions were such as to assure that the operation remained small-scale and that the site was regularly monitored.
(2) The Head of Planning Applications Group reported correspondence from Swale BC reaffirming its objection to the application.
(3) The Committee amended the recommendations by specifying that the proposed planting was to be delivered and maintained for at least 7 years; that no waste was to be burned on site; that there was to be no occupation or residency of the office or accommodation outside working hours; that records were to be kept of all the tank inspections and made available to KCC upon request; and that the netting on the fencing was to be maintained in a good state of repair.
(4) On being put to the vote, the recommendations of the Head of Planning Applications Group were carried as amended in (3) above by 7 votes to 2.
(5) RESOLVED that the Appropriate Assessment made under The Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations (2017) be endorsed as appended to the report and that permission be granted to the application subject to conditions, including conditions covering the permission being implemented within 3 years; the development being carried out in accordance with the submitted documentation and plans; no waste being imported until the site infrastructure (including waste reception bay, concrete pad, drainage channels, silt traps, underground storage tank, sleeper walls and dust suppression system) is provided and that it be maintained in a good state of repair thereafter; the submission, as referenced in the supporting statement, of a site management plan consolidating the mitigation measures, including amongst other matters, the measures set out in the document titled ‘Supplementary Information: Dust Management’ dated 26 April 2019 (Reference: 2917); overall throughput being restricted to a maximum of 5,000 tpa; no skips, containers or waste / recyclable materials stored exceeding 3m in height; a copy of the permission being made available on site; withdrawal of permitted development rights; a maximum of 22 HGV movements per day (11 In / 11 Out); records of all HGV movements being kept by the site operator; HGVs being routed north along the Old Ferry Road toward the A249 corridor, unless delivering / collecting locally within Iwade or Lower Halstow; measures being taken to ensure that vehicles connected with the use do not deposit mud or other materials on the public highway; all loaded HGVs entering or leaving the site being enclosed, covered or sheeted; thesiteaccessroadbeing upgradedandrepairedwithin4 monthsofthepermission; the provision and perma ... view the full minutes text for item 54.
Proposal CA/19/1633 (KCC/CA/0166/2019) - 5 FE secondary school comprising 3-storey building, separate sports hall, MUGA, creation of two new vehicular accesses and associated parking landscaping and ancillary work at former Chaucer Technology School, Spring Lane, Canterbury; Kent County Council and Keir Construction (Southern) PDF 3 MB
(1) Ida Linfield was present for this item pursuant to Committee Procedure Rule 2.27 and spoke.
(2) The Head of Planning Applications Group informed the Committee that the applicants had agreed to include photovoltaic panels as part of the development. This necessitated an additional condition requiring the submission of details and that they be installed when the development was completed and the deletion of the relevant recommended Informative.
(3) In unanimously agreeing the recommendations of the Head of Planning Applications Group, the Committee amended the conditions by specifying the replacement of any plants or trees that died within 7 years after planting; that the vehicular accesses were to be kept open for at least 30 minutes before opening and closing time; and that a minimum of 2 electronic charging points were to be provided prior to occupation of the development. The Committee also added two Informatives. The first of these specified that the School Travel Plan should include a review of the efficiency of the 30-minute opening and closing of the vehicular accesses and the need for longer opening times as well as the adequacy of the facilities for pedestrians in the vicinity of the site. The second Informative encouraged the applicants to consider the provision of additional electronic charging points, including the installation of passive infrastructure for such works as part of the development.
