To consider report of the Deputy Chief Executive




Change of use of part of the building to a pharmacy (A1 use class), creation of new entrance with canopy and footpath and installation of new external air condenser unit.


The Chair introduced the item to the Committee and provided a brief history of the application highlighting the fact finding visit and the previous Meeting where the Committee resolved not to accept the Officer recommendation to refuse the application. Following this decision, an amendment was put forward to approve the application contrary to Officer advise.


This was supported by the Committee who having carefully considered the content of the Officers report, the information obtained at the fact finding visit as well as their knowledge of the local centre and surrounding areas, determined that there would be little harm to the vitality and viability of the local centre if the pharmacy was relocated to Morlais Medical Centre.


The Chair also advised that if the Committee were still minded to approve the application the conditions suggested by Officers were set out in the report.



Resolved that:


The application be approved subject to the conditions outlined in the report.
