AVBC planning officers have released a report reviewing the evidence surrounding the application. The officers conclude that the application should be refused. In light of this, the planning board will make a decision to accept or reject the outline planning application. Click here to view the officer’s report.
Kedleston Voice (KV), whilst heartened by this recommended rejection, is not taking anything for granted. Whichever way the decision goes, we will need to be prepared to take further action:
If the application is refused, Catesby will have an opportunity to appeal or re-submit the application, which will require further action from KV and its supporters.
If the application is approved, KV along with residents will need to support the “calling in” of the application by the Secretary of State and, if necessary, take action in court in order to initiate the process of judicial review. Thanks to the donations of supporters, KV has been able to engage a barrister, in preparation.
