To consider a report from the Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure (copy enclosed)
The Committee considered a planning application for the installation of temporary portacabin classroom buildings on the hard surfaced play area of St Joseph’s School Cockermouth for a temporary period, in association with works to create a new sixth form campus for pupils from Mayfield School, Whitehaven.
The accommodation would provide two classrooms, lobby, w.c. facilities and storage. A ramp and steps would allow access from the existing play area to the temporary classrooms. Additional rear openings would provide steps as emergency exits.
The Planning Officer reported that there had been no objections to the proposals, and the siting of the modular classrooms would be acceptable until new permanent classrooms were completed. She therefore recommended that planning permission be granted, subject to conditions.
With no questions from members the recommendation was moved and seconded and put to a vote, which was unanimous.
RESOLVED, that planning permission be GRANTED subject to conditions set out in Appendix 1 of this report.
