I write this post absolutely stunned that despite 4 years of substantive facts showing that the junction will not work, and the representatives for the Appellant’s constant misrepresentations and lies, the inspector has ignored the application of the law of mathematics in the traffic flow calculations and still granted planning permission.
What can you say! Click the link below to read the decision.
Update: We’re getting a lot of feedback on this and summing it up, it suffices to say that it just shows how tilted in favour of developers, this process is and that it must be acceptable to be dishonest, mislead the Inspector and have your lies taken into consideration in support of the decision. During the Appeal, KOMG did ask the Inspector if witnesses were considered under oath when giving evidence, however the inspector said no, he just expected them to be honest. So, they’ve got away with it. If they’d have been under oath, they’d have been guilty of perjury and could be prosecuted.
I have to say that this kind of decision which beggars belief and flies in the face of the facts, must be why the developers have been so blatantly sloppy and deceitful all along. They always knew they’d win irrespective of the lies or disregard of public safety.
Theres a lot of palms being greased I suspect
Absolutely disgraceful. How can anyone in their right mind suggest that the junction is fit for purpose, even in its present capacity.
Dear All…absolutely gutted to hear this rotten result..which absolutely reeks like a sewage leak on a Summer’s day…..I would encourage Meadow Lane residents to put up posters in their front gardens when building is about to commence..perhaps stating a few truths for prospective buyers to read as they pass by….

I am writing with regard to planning application 65439 Barrett Homes.
It seems that all obligations to safety re vehicles and pedestrians as regards the junction have not been met.
It is the councils responsibility to all residents that every detail involved in the safety of such a descision is correct in highway engineering terms.
The junction is not safe and I urge you not to sign this off until
it is proven to be safe to all users.
