  1. With respect to Rochester Airfield (appendix 1 refers) policy s11 and all other references to built development on Rochester Airfield be deleted from the plan;
  2. Former paint factory, Bush Road, Cuxton: the indicative capacity for the site remaining at 45 as in the deposit local plan;
  3. Rear of Elm Avenue, Chattenden: the indicative capacity for the site remaining at 30 as in the deposit local plan and with no amendment to the site boundary to include the property known as Searchlight as recommended by the inspector; and
  4. Reference to residential development, rear of Compass Close and The Tideway, Rochester, be deleted from the plan.
