Application Update 28th Feb 2015

Thanks to everyones efforts and objections to the mindless destruction of the Meadow, Barratt Homes are having to think again.   The end of March had originally been pencilled in for the application to go before the Planning Committee, however realising that permission would certainly be refused on numerous grounds, Barratt Homes have asked the Council to delay the decision by a number of months, but normally this extended period can’t run beyond 13 weeks of the application.

Application Update 17th Feb 2014

Friday February 13th saw the last day of objections prior to the application being considered for approval.

The application has so many flaws, it is inconceivable that it will be approved the first time round.  At the time of writing there are at least 460+ objections to the somewhat ill-concived planning application.
