Minutes:

A report was considered from the Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure regarding Application Reference No. 5/22/9002. Proposal: Creation of a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA); comprising installation of a 4G Artificial Grass Surface on an existing hard-surfaced area, erection of floodlighting with ancillary infrastructure, new fencing and landscaping; and extended community use of the MUGA. Location: Ulverston Victoria High School, Springfield Road, Ulverston, LA12 0EB.

The Planning Officer made his presentation using plans and photographs to explain the application.

The Chair asked if there would be tree planting which would minimise light spread to the residential home close to the development. This was confirmed by the Planning Officer who advised that the relevant lighting guidelines had been followed.

Following member questions on lighting, the Planning Officer commented on the times of use of the MUGA and advised that responsibility for switching off lighting would be the responsibility of the school

A member asked about flooding. The Planning Officer advised there had been none in the area and explained that tree planting and the raised profile of the surface in comparison to its surroundings would ensure there was no flooding.

The Planning Officer was confident surrounding residents would not be affected by light spread.

It was moved by Mr Dobson and seconded by Mr Roberts that the recommendation as set out in the report be agreed.

The Chair moved to the vote which was cast as follows: 14 members in favour of the motion, 0 against and 0 abstentions.

RESOLVED that,  Planning permission be granted subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1 of the report.
