Glebe Field Update

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 17:11 by Steve Bosson

Following the loss of the appeal against development of the Glebe Field, preliminary work has started - presumably contamination and archaeological surveying.

The Parish Council, while continuing to be opposed, have no more practical steps that can be taken. Judicial review is a theoretical final step, but advice suggests that we would be very unlikely to be able to overturn the decision as the decision is based on EHDC Planning policies and not local opinion, no matter how strong. Judicial review of a case like this would also be extremely expensive (many tens of thousands of pounds). More »

We will now move into a mitigating mode and attempt to work with the developer to try to diminish the impact on High Cross during the construction.

The Parish Council and other local residents put in the maximum possible effort to try to keep this open space in our village. Everyone involved did everything possible, but the developers appeal was upheld.

The full decision document is attached.
