Executive Council met today, Tuesday 15 December 2015, with two items for discussion on the Open Agenda.

The first item sought approval for an Application for Development Permission to erect 16 polytunnels, buildings to house a tractor and equipment, and toilet block facilities, in the Ex-ADA Fields, Longwood.  ExCo approved the Application with five conditions as recommended by the Land Development Control Authority.

The second item sought approval to introduce Dark Skies legislation, prior to public consultation on this matter. ExCo supported the idea of having legislation and recognised the value to the Island in being able to achieve Dark Sky status. ExCo also recognised the need for specialist support in drafting the legislation and, once drafted, for this to be subject to public consultation.

The meeting concluded at 10.15am.
