The Development Control Committee will be considering the Cheetah Marine planning application for the eastern esplanade next Tuesday.
The Planning Department have recommended that the application be approved. This does NOT mean it is a done deal. The agenda notes can be read online.
The meeting starts at 4pm, but also being discussed at the same meeting will be the planning application for Priory School which is probable to attract many members of the public.
Therefore, in order to gain seating in the public gallery, try to get there early. From past experience, these meetings can go on for quite some time, so do be prepared for this.
If you can’t make it, we will of course be reporting and should have the decision up on the blog and forum by the same evening.
An interesting question has been raised by the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England on our forum this week with regard to a change in size of the site from the originally agreed area of 1100 sq metres to 1514 sq metres in the new plans.
We await a response from the legal department with much interest.
There will be some car pooling happening, so get in touch if you are interested in sharing lifts to Newport.
