Persimmon Homes' appeal against the Council's decision to refuse its planning application will be heard by a Government Planning Inspector at a Public Inquiry on 25th April 2017, commencing at 10:00 am here at the Council's offices. The appeal is likely to last for four days and residents can attend.
All comments previously made about the planning application have been sent to the Planning Inspector for consideration. If you have something else to say, that hasn't already been said, or if you haven't yet made any comments but would like to, the Inspector will normally allow you to speak.
If you want to speak at the Public Inquiry it is important that you are there when it opens on the first day (25th April) at 10:00am.
It is on the first day that the Inspector will ask if any interested people want to speak, register their names and tell everyone about the timetable and the order the proceedings will take.
Once a decision has been made it will be published on the Council's website and all interested parties known to the Council will be notified.
