During the discussion on this item Councillors expressed their disappointment that the objections raised by the Parish Council, in that the application appeared to not be consistent with the aims of the Eco Island energy conservation policy, had not been taken into account.  However, it was pointed out that this reason was not a material planning objection, making the objections raised not substantive to sustain.  The clerk mentioned a telephone conversation she had held with Mr Kevin Burton, of the IW Council.  She was instructed to contact Mr Burton to ask that a formal request be sent, which would then be considered at the next meeting of the Parish Council.
