An application has been received to develop the land at Michelins Farm (location of the great tyre fire). It’s hard to work out the exact plans due to the ‘dial-up’ speed of RDC’s website and we will seek further clarification of the plans in due course.
Hybrid planning application: full planning application for erection of buildings for use within Classes B1(c), B2 and B8 with access and servicing arrangements, car parking, landscaping, drainage features and associated highway works (Phase 1); outline planning application for up to 33,500 square metres of employment uses (Classes B1(c), B2 and B8) including means of access with all other matters reserved (Phase 2).
We look forward to hearing from the 3 Conservative Ward Councillors on this application, mainly as this land was earmarked in the core strategy for an allocated travellers site and as we’ve previously commented there are plenty of illegal travellers pitches across the district but no legal ones provided.
