It is 122 pages long, so Ron Oatham and Chris Black have a lot of reading to do….
Officers are recommending approval, with 40 conditions..
This is the second application – the first was refused in January, and Countryside have appealed. The District Council has already decided at a confidential meeting last month not to defend that appeal (a decision which we opposed).
So the reality is this.
If the council passes this second application next week, then it is of course passed.
If the council refuses this application, then the appeal on the first application will go ahead. And as the council has already decided not to defend the appeal , the first application will almost certainly be passed.
So one way or another, one of these applications is going to go ahead.
