8.   6/2014/0192 Wessex Water Services Ltd. Purbeck Road (Land adjacent Wessex Water Reservoir), Lytchett Matravers. Outline application – Erect a residential development of up to 29 dwellings with the reserved matter of access to be determined. The Council members felt that this matter should be referred to Full Council immediately. The members’ view was that this proposal is premature and should be deferred until after the Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Plan is complete on the basis that:

·          The Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Plan is already under consideration and the timing of this proposal undermines the public consultation process for it.

·          The Lytchett Matravers Neighbourhood Plan public survey of issues strongly indicates a serious concern amongst residents that many aspects of the village infrastructure are already seriously over-stretched.

·          The Planning Inspector has yet to respond to PDC on the matter of housing numbers in the District. The Council felt that this proposal should not be considered until after the Inspector’s decision is known.


9.   CORRESPONDENCE. There was none.



In view of the date of this meeting, the scheduled Planning Committee meeting on Thursday 1st May was cancelled.
