Attleborough: Unit opposite MultiFab Bunns Bank: Reference: 3PL/2018/1206/F pdf icon PDF 85 KB


Beeston: Land off The Street and Herne Lane: Reference: 3PL/2018/0472/F pdf icon PDF 167 KB

This application was presented to Planning Committee at the meeting of 1st October 2018 where Members resolved to approve the application as an overturn of the Officer’s recommendation of refusal.


There has subsequently been submitted:


(a)   additional information in the form of dated photographs showing a hedge on the northern boundary of the site including from 1946. The additional information comes from an objector and from investigations by the Council's Tree Officer.  The additional information indicates that the hedge on the northern boundary is a hedge which should be considered as an 'Important Hedge' and its value as such and the presumption to retain such a hedge.


(b)   a Pre-Action Letter regarding the intention to lodge a Judicial Review application in regard to the decision of the Council to approve the application, the details of which are set out below.




This application is being re-presented to Planning Committee for re-consideration by Members. The reason that the application is being represented is due to the risk of a Judicial Review being lodged and the need for Members to be able to consider the additional information regarding the status of the hedge and to consider the issues raised in the Pre-Action letter.
