  • What about this interesting Application?

    Application for Prior Approval for the Change of Use of Agricultural Building (North Unit) to Class C1 Apartotel :Ivanhoe Nurseries Ironwell Lane Hawkwell

    http://planningguidance.planningportal.gov.uk/blog/guidance/when-is-permission-required/what-are-permitted-development-rights/permitted-development-rights-for-the-change-of-use-of-agricultural-buildings/

    If you read the above the Government has decided that Agricultural Buildings may be converted without much formality to Class C1 (hotels).

    Yes you read that right !!

    But under the new Government rules this cannot and will not go to Councillors to decide on whether to Approve or Refuse.

    The Decision will be made purely and solely by Council Planning Officers and we are not even sure whether we or residents can even comment.

    As Ward Members we will, of course, and so should any residents who are interested.

    Just put the reference 15/00578/DPDP3 into http://maps.rochford.gov.uk/DevelopmentControl.aspx?RequestType=ParseTemplate&Template=DevelopmentControlSearch.tmplt

  • Has anyone checked the small print ? – only the last time there were 3 items on the agenda it was followed by a secret session to orchestrate a retreat from the
    23-10 vote taken on 29/01/15 ( rejection of Countryside OPP ).
