A Big Thank You

Just a short post to say thank you to everyone who helped in the run up to yesterday’s deadline and objected to the planned development of 50 apartments next door to The Prince.

We submitted 329 objections from the letters filled in at the pub. Many others filed their own letters or used the on-line process. We also used a professional planning consultant to send in a more technical objection, persuaded the police to object (they don’t want flats overlooking their car park), Councillor Martin Mulaney will be objecting and we even manged to wake up Punch (our landlord who did nothing when the original planning application was granted) and they objected.

I met with the planning officer yesterday and the Council are keen to help our cause, but with the original planning application granted without any objections, they have little room for manoevre. The next stage is for the application the developer wants to go before the full planning committee and at that point we will organise a trip to the Council House. We will announce the date as soon as we know.

Once again many thanks for your support.
