Officers introduced the report and noted the addendum, which included an amended condition.

Responding to Members’ questioning, officers confirmed that a fire strategy condition was not necessary as the building was already operational, but Condition 9 was imposed due to the change in cladding. Councillors also heard that the relevant energy requirements were in place and the standard low emission strategy could still be imposed on the application.
