STOP PRESS

Following representation to the planning department by Cllr Haynes on behalf of the Parish Council and residents, the appeals inquiry will be available to watch on webcam CLICK HERE

Alternatively, the inquiry is open to the public. A good attendance by residents, even for short periods of time, will show our commitment to, and enthusiasm for, the neighbourhood planning process and local empowerment.

If you have time on Friday (6th November), then please look in between 9.30am — 5.30pm.

Just to remind everyone of the context:

After all three applications were refused by CW&C in September 2012, the developers appealed to the inspectors in Bristol. Following a 12-day public inquiry hearing in June 2013 and before any decision had been reached, our Tattenhall and District Neighbourhood Plan became 'made' (and official) and also CW&C's Local Plan (Part 1) was adopted. These and other new factors have caused the Secretary of State at the DCLG to re-open the Inquiry.

The level of housing supply throughout the whole CW&C area will be an important issue. If this supply is sufficient, our Neighbourhood Plan should carry full weight.

The developers will be represented by barristers and be opposed by a barrister for CW&C and also by Mike Jones, Carol Weaver and Graham Spencer. Some residents will make statements on Thursday morning.
After the hearing, the Inspector (Mrs Christina Downes) will report to the Secretary of State (Greg Clark) and then he will make the final decision on these appeals.
