We have now appealed to the SoS to call in a planning application for 200 homes on a site which is partly designated (for 50 homes) in our plan. The basis of the request is that that the District council had 2 planning applications go to Appeal in December. In one case the Inspector stated in his opinion we had a 5 year supply and in the other a different Inspector thought we did not have a proven 5 year supply because it had not been publicly tested. We will have a Neighbourhood plan through referendum before the Committee makes a decision on this case but the recommendation of the Planning Officer is the grant as the percieved lack of 5 year supply reduces the weight of our NDP. We think this is a pivotal case and will be of interest to the NDP community.
I will keep everyone informed of the progress.
