At the meeting I requested in County Hall on Monday which was attended by Planning officers, a fellow Ward Councillor and representatives of Stamford Bridge and Full Sutton Parish Councils to clarify any misunderstandings I was informed that there is no issue if I wish to make my opinions on the application public.
- My Personal Position – I have no issue with the planned new prison.
- Jobs – I welcome the potential new jobs.
As a Ward Councillor it is of no importance what my personal opinion is or how many jobs are to be created. I must purely consider the application in relation to Planning Legislation.
I can confirm that when I speak at the Planning Committee for this application I will state that THIS APPLICATION MUST BE REFUSED.
I will give my reasons at the meeting.
