Spurt Mead rejection subject to appeal(June 09, 2016)
THOSE who want to build a housing estate on the banks of the River Wylye on the most important entrance to the town at Spurt Mead have refloated their miserable plan.
The applicants, having been rejected by democratically elected members of Warminster Town Council and Wiltshire Council, want the government to railroad the proposal through via a planning appeal.
Steve Dancey said: "Those in Warminster who have supported this application should hang their heads in shame. A united front might have convinced the applicants theirs was a lost cause."
Below is part of the notice communicated to councillors.
I am writing to let you know that an appeal has been made to the Planning Inspectorate in respect of the above site.
The appeal is against the Against a Refusal in respect of the above site, and is to be decided on the basis of Written Representations procedure.
If you wish you are now able to make written comments on the proposal. These should be sent in triplicate direct to the Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/10b Kite Wing, 2 The Square, Temple Quay House. Bristol BS1 6PN, quoting the Inspectorate reference, and should be received within 5 weeks of the start date above.
Any representations received after the deadline will not normally be seen by the Inspector and will be returned.
Any comments you may have already made following the original application will also be forwarded to the Inspectorate (unless they are expressly confidential) but you may withdraw, modify or amplify them now if you wish. All comments received will be copied to the appellant and will be taken into account by the Inspector in deciding the appeal.
If you wish to receive a copy of the appeal Decision Letter, you should write to the Planning Inspectorate specifically requesting one.
