The Chair reported that the applicant for ‘The Tulip’ intended to appeal to the Secretary of State.
In response to questions around the process, the Comptroller and City Solicitor reported that the City Corporation would be required to submit documentation to the Appeal and that objectors and supporters of the scheme would also be notified of the details of this. It was anticipated that the Appeal would take place in June/July and that further details would be communicated with the Committee once they were known.
The Chair reported that further consultation would be taking place on this in April 2020. He added that it was primarily a concern of the Policy and Resources Committee who would be coordinating a formal response on this, but that it should continue to be reported to this Committee for information.
