“Things have developed quickly today. Julie Morris contacted Sarah Dewing a few hours ago to let her know that the Planning Officer has informed the developer that the application has been rejected!!
Good news all round. However, it is likely that they will come back at some point with an amended application, so we need to stay vigilant. The Council is duty bound to inform anyone who has objected if this happens, so keep an eye out for this. In the meantime, we can relax a little.
Sarah would be interested to know how many of you would support a move to designate Links Road and possibly Ashdown, Kingsdown and Longdown Roads as a conservation area. Could those of you in Higher Green who live in one let us know what the advantages and disadvantages are? It might help to make such applications more difficult in the future.
