1.    V/2018/0396 - Wren Hall Nursing Home Ltd - Extension to Rear of Existing Care Home and Change of Use from Residential Curtilage and Equestrian to Create Additional Car Parking to the North West of the Site in Association with the Care Home, and Construction of Steps from the Care Home to the Car Park Area - Wren Hall Nursing Home, 234 Nottingham Road, Selston, Nottingham.


In accordance with the Council’s Policy for dealing with late matters in relation to planning applications (Minute No. D4.17, 1993/94), the Assistant Director for Planning and Regulatory Services gave a verbal report on additional comments received in relation to the application after the agenda had been finalised as follows:
