The Assistant Director of Legal and Corporate Support Services:


a)                 presented a report regarding an application which was likely to be considered by the Planning Committee in the near future.


b)                 advised that a number of Planning Committee members were likely to have a personal and pecuniary interest in the applicants owing to their involvement in the civic process.


c)                  requested that the Committee determine whether it would be appropriate to grant a dispensation which would allow members of the Planning Committee to take part in consideration of the item if they would otherwise have had an interest which would have precluded them from doing so.


d)                 invited members' questions and comments.


The Reserve Independent Person confirmed that the Planning Committee decision would be taken solely by the Planning Committee rather than by Council.


RESOLVED that a dispensation for all members and substitute members of the Planning Committee for a period of one year in relation to planning applications for a tank memorial on Tritton Road be agreed.
