The Town Clerk advised that the Committee had previously agreed to ask Planning Officers of the District Council to attend a meeting. On the last occasion there had been insufficient time to address the various issues that Members were concerned about. In the meantime the Head of Planning had left the authority and the post was currently unfilled. It was agreed to request attendance of appropriate Officers at a future meeting of the Planning Committee, possibly the 13th June.
