Mark Stamford thanked Council for their support in relation to application 12/00468/TCA and the decision made by TDC to approve the application without consideration of the submitted recommendations. He also referred to application 12/00504/TCA which had the same outcome. He mentioned that the Harwich Society and Residents’ Association had contacted the owners of the property which contained the trees and had also been passed to the Friends of the Earth for comment. Cllrs Double and Calver confirmed that there is no appeal process as the approval was made by delegated decision and can only appeal to the owners. It was agreed to write to the Head of Planning, copied to the TDC Chief Executive, Planning Portfolio Holder and the Pier Hotel to raise concern that public opinion has been ignored and request that anything that can be done, to overturn the decision, is done.
