The meeting studied the plans and other details of the application.After discussion Mrs Curry called for a vote. The Parish Council voted unanimously (For 5 Against Nil Absent2) to support the proposal but decided to send various observations to the Planning Department.

1.They believe a condition should be set emphasising‘temporary’ as permanent buildings etc would use different materials for construction.

2.The need for the use of porous materials and the avoidance of runoff of water in the hardstanding as already the adjacent Kirklington Road has a history of flooding as does a neighbouring property.

3.The possibility of a condition being applied to the type of floodlighting used  as the Parish Council are already in contact with the applicant regarding  the intrusive/ non environmentally friendly nature of the floodlighting on a development carried out on the site in 2011.

4.They believe a condition should be set regarding all construction traffic being required to approach the sie via the A617 and not through Eakring village.
