It was noted that Councillors Lusby and Teare had been appointed as members of the Planning (Development Control) Committee Central for this meeting only in place of Councillors Wartenberg and Witherick respectively, in accordance with the approved procedure.


Disclosures of Interest


Councillor Lusby disclosed a personal and prejudicial interest in the planning application 5/2009/1489, submitted by St Albans City & District Council, and referred to in Minute no. 9 below because she was the Portfolio Holder for Housing Services.  She left the meeting and the meeting room during discussion of that item.


Councillor Frearson disclosed a personal and non-prejudicial interest in planning application 5/2009/1359, as recorded in Minute no. 5 below, because he was a member of the Verulam Residents’ Association which had opposed that planning application.  However, Councillor Frearson advised that he had not attended any meeting of the Association when the planning application had been discussed.


Councillors Gaygusuz and Teare both advised that at a previous meeting of this Committee they had considered and expressed views on the planning application in relation to the property referred to in Minute no. 10 below.  The Principal Legal Executive advised the Committee that in his opinion these were not disclosures of interest since it was a planning application which the Committee would be asked to consider afresh later at this meeting.
