TDC Planning Committee Meeting – Tuesday 11th October CANCELLED (click here to view)

The latest twist in the Priory saga:
The special meeting of the Planning Committee on Tuesday next (11th October) has been CANCELLED.  The following statement was issued by TDC yesterday afternoon:
Following a briefing meeting held this afternoon with the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Planning Committee and consideration of external legal advice received by TDC, tomorrow morning’s site visit for the St Osyth Priory planning applications will NOT now take place.
The Planning Committee meeting due to be held next Tuesday (11 October) to consider the St Osyth Priory planning applications will also NOT now take place.
We understand that this is because TDC have not made public all of the documentation received from the applicants.
We also understand that the applicants have lodged an appeal because of non-determination of the applications within the time limit and therefore this will become the subject of a public inquiry – whether it will be put in with the one due to start on 15th November or whether it will be a separate one, is not known at present.
In any case, the Planning Committee will have to meet sometime to consider the applications and say what decision they WOULD have come to in order to instruct the officers to defend the case at the public inquiry.  Presumably this will be arranged once the complete documentation is made publically available.
Please pass the information to as many people as possible.
