To consider a report from the Executive Director – Economy & Infrastructure (copy enclosed)



Members considered a planning application to construct a hard surfaced Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) at Bransty Primary School, Mona Road, Whitehaven.


The Planning Officer showed members plans, aerial images and photographs of the site and its surrounds and detailing the proposal, pointing out key elements of context.


The Planning Officer considered that the proposal would provide an enhanced sports facility for the school that would maximise the productive use of an area of grassed playing field whilst maintaining its openness and boosting opportunities for pupils to improve their health and well-being.  He was therefore recommending that planning permission be granted subject to conditions.


The recommendation was moved and seconded and put to a vote, which was unanimous.


RESOLVED,     that planning permission be GRANTED subject to the conditions set out in Appendix 1 to this report.
