Two planning applications subject to correction

At the latest Bradford Council Regulatory and Appeals Committee as well as other business there were only two planning applications but both were subject to correction after members received their agendas. A replacement site map was sent out for the application to build houses on the former Sun Inn site in Cottingley.


An application to install dormer windows and a roof extension in Manningham was also pulled on the day of the meeting because officers admitted that details of it being in a conservation area had been omitted.

At the end of the Committee Meeting Liberal Democrat member Councillor Geoff Reid said:

“I need to comment on our proceedings this morning. I can cope with with the minor error in the map because it was sent out in good time. However the Manningham application was such a serious mistake that we were told this morning that we had to vote on deferring it to a future meeting but we had no choice as to how we should vote. This is not a healthy position in which to find ourselves and we have got to avoid this sort of thing in the future.”

Councillor Reid added “I did say when I cast my vote for deferral that we were voting for the inevitable. At a time when we are resisting Government plans to reduce the planning powers of local authorities, procedural sloppiness in Bradford does not help our case."
