WD/2010/0283/F South Farm Nursery, South Farm Lane, Tunbridge Wells –  2 polytunnels

It was resolved to respond as follows:

We have no objection to the installation of 2 polytunnels and support the aim of producing produce for local markets. Access to the site is not shown on the plan; this will need careful consideration by the highways department in view of the narrow country road and the potential for large vehicles required for the business. If permission is granted, a condition should be imposed for the polytunnels to be removed when they are no longer in use.

There being no further business the meeting closed at 7.40 pm.
