44Members noted that a question had been submitted by a Mr G.Robertson of 17 Turner Close Billingham. As Mr Robertson was not in attendance at the meeting, it was agreed that a written response would be provided by the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport and a copy provided to each Member of the Council.
65The following motion submitted under the Council Procedure Rule 12.1 was moved by Councillor Lupton and seconded by Councillor Gibson:

" The proposal by PD Teesport to establish a deep sea container terminal on the Tees is of local and regional significance in terms of employment opportunity and would significantly uplift the local economy and act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the Northern Region. There would be a reduction in road transport distances for containers being delivered to the North and Midlands and would be a sustainable redevelopment of a brown field site. The applicant has stated that there would be minimal environmental impact and only minor disturbance to the local population, being an isolated site in a wholly commercial area.

This Council therefore supports the application in principle; but that such support is subject to any views expressed by the local planning authority should it be consulted on the planning application, the consideration of which will be determined on its own merits; and informs all relevant local and National Governmental Agencies of our commitment."

The motion was carried.

(Councillors Noble, Patterson and Brown left the meeting room during consideration of this item, having declared a personal and prejudicial interest in the matter due to their membership of the River Tees Port Health Authority.)
