3.               Public Participation

Several members of the public raised concerns about agenda item 4.2 - Ten Oaks Farm, Clayhidon.  Erection of dwelling and garage to replace existing caravan.  Questions asked/comments made included:- do the applicants work on the holding and/or employ anyone?  Is there a viable and sustainable business on the holding?  What impact will development have on the countryside/AONB?  Insufficient paperwork to support the application available on MDDCs website.  What precedent could be set as a result of such an application?
