Bellwinch Application Thrown Out

Bellwinch’s planning application for part of the Read’s Nursery site was refused at Sept 25th’s planning meeting – unanimously.

Chris moved refusal on the grounds of:

– overdevelopment without regard to the quality of urban living

– unsatisfactory design and layout

– lack of phasing of educational and medical facilities

– archaeological survey required

Chris and Ron spoke against the scheme and were really delighted to be supported by all the other councillors.

It’s not over – Bellwinch can appeal, and we know something will be built here sooner or later. But hopefully we can get something better than the present scheme- and maybe we get a doctors surgery and schooling sorted out.
