We’ve now received news that Ascalon Properties (the people who own the field) have lodged an appeal against the council’s refusal to grant planning permission.
We’ve been expecting the appeal and have been waiting for news of this since December, but as I imagine the applicants have been finding it difficult to scrape a case together they’ve waited until the the appeal deadline was about to expire before they took action.
Your residents committee are meeting in the next few days to action our appeal plan and this time around it’s Ascalon Properties ( and probably Barratts ) vs Residents and the Council. Yes, we’ll be standing shoulder to shoulder with our Councillors and Officers to finally put an end to this shambles.
Your support is much needed yet again and we’ll post more info once it’s available.
On the bright side, unless any of the facts have miraculously changed since December, which they haven’t! then the outcome should be to uphold the refusal decision.
It’s just unbelievable that this appeal should even be allowed, surely we have proved without doubt that the access to this proposed site is totally unworkable and potentially life threatening to the local population and to future potential home owners not only now but for years to come.
