IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The Director of Planning & Building Control announced that late on Friday, 25 October 2019, the Council received the Planning Inspectorate’s final report on the Local Plan.  Due to time constraints, it had not been possible to consider the comments contained within the Inspector’s report; therefore, in terms of the vast majority of agenda items, it was not considered appropriate or lawful to hear the following applications:
