He also reported recent representations from Councillor J Christophers, Councillor R Keeling (both Teignbridge District Council) and a local resident objecting to the application. The Chief Planner also reported and circulated details of proposed amendments to planning conditions 1 (Temporary Permission); 5 a and b (Hours of Operation) and 9 (Noise); and 12 (Restoration and Aftercare (original conditions 12 and 13 combined).
