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.
