The developers have submitted a new application to build 9 dwellings on the Sledging Field using the same access off Church Lane and with a long sweeping road across the field!
With such a large site the potential risk of further larger developments should not be overlooked.
The housing mix is not known at this stage but the proposals are unlikely to provide the affordable housing that the village needs.
We expect the planning appeal for 38 dwellings to be withdrawn shortly.
It is clear that the role of the Rule 6 Party and the many objection comments made by the community have been influential in the appellant’s decision to withdraw.
We now need to keep the pressure up by making it clear that any development proposals for this site will not be supported by the community.
Please help by sending your comments to the planning authority. Details of how to do this and suggested reasons for objecting are included on our website.
