Application A- 29 Coronation Road, Thornton Cleveleys, Lancashire, FY5 1DQ (20/00429/FUL)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The application was brought to the meeting for determination due to the fact that the application had been before the emergency powers decision meeting on 22 July 2020. It had been brought back to the emergency powers decision meeting due to an administrative error that had resulted in letters to the neighbours of the site not being printed and posted. Therefore, following the expiry of the consultation period and the report being updated to take account of the representations received, the application was brought back for reconsideration. 


Councillors Moon and Ballard confirmed they were familiar with the site due to a recent site visit relating to another application on the site. Prior to the meeting, the site photographs were also distributed to further assist with the understanding of the proposal and its impact.


It was stated that Environmental Health had amended their comments in light of the misunderstanding of the application noted in the previous report


Councillors Ballard and Moon considered the application with the additional comments by neighbours.
