Further News about TDC Planning Committee Meeting (click here to view)

As already notified, The Special Meeting of TDC Planning Committee on 11th October has been CANCELLED.
 .
It has now been rescheduled for Tuesday 18th October in the Princes Theatre starting at 6pm (late entry is allowed).  The site visit will take place on the morning of 18th October.
  .
We cannot afford to leaflet the whole village again so please pass the news on as widely as possible particularly to any village groups you belong to.
 .
It has now been confirmed that the new applications will be included as part of the Appeal Inquiry already arranged to start on Tuesday 15th November.
 .
It is still necessary for the applications to be put to the Planning Committee and if they decide to approve them, the applicants say they will cancel the Inquiry – and that would be an end to the matter.
 .
So it is still essential to have a good turnout at the Planning Committee on Tuesday 18th October.  Please attend if you can.
 .
The new applications contain new/revised documentation and altered financial figures but there is no arrangement for objectors to address these in written form to the Inspectorate.  No written submissions from the public have been accepted by the Inspectorate since 3rd March 2016 although much new information has appeared since that date.  The notification does say, “You may also, if you wish, attend the Public Inquiry, and at the Inspector’s discretion, give your views.  If you wish to speak at the Public Inquiry, you must be there when it opens”. If you wish for further information concerning the Inquiry, contact Leanne Nicholas of TDC:   Tel: 01255 686 157 or email: lnicholas@tendringdc.gov.uk.
.
Although this will be costly to TDC (i.e. Council Tax payers), we believe this is the best way forward since the applications with all their claimed benefits and financial assertions will be subject to detailed scrutiny. The Inquiry will take place at the Weeley offices of TDC.  The only thing that would stop this is if the Planning Committee decides to grant permission for the applications.
