TOMORROW'S Isle of Wight Council planning meeting has been postponed.

The authority said adverse weather earlier in the month had affected the distribution of letters to people who commented on the planning applications.

Plans for Medina Yard, Cowes, Ryde School, Wootton Recreation Ground and Buckberry Lane, Newport, were due to be considered.

The committee will now meet on Tuesday, March 27 to ensure the appropriate amount of time is given to make arrangements for people to speak at the meeting.

Chairman of planning, Cllr Chris Quirk, said: “We’re sorry we’ve had to postpone Tuesday’s meeting but it’s critical we give potential speakers enough time and notice to be prepared.”
