Planning Notes

Over the years we have commented on many planning applications. In some cases we have managed to secure changes to the applications, which in others we have not been successful, Sometimes we have prepared lengthy submissions which disappear from the the Council's planning pages after a decision has been made.

Rather than see our submissions be lost to history, this page will catalogue our more significant submissions and their outcome.
History will then be able to judge our position and that of the planning authority when a development becomes reality.
