'Calling In': Retraction

After yesterday's high comes this morning's low!

We received a copy of an email sent by John Bercow's personal assistant stating that AVDC's recent planning decision was to be 'called in' by the office of Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

Needless to say, we were extremely keen to share this wonderful news with Haddenham residents.

Sadly, it seems that John Bercow's PA misunderstood the position.

In fact, Eric Pickle's office had simply confirmed in writing that he will be looking at the AVDC decision with a view to 'calling in' if appropriate.

We understand that the decision is unlikely to be made before the end of February.

Needless to say, we will bring news of the final outcome as soon as we possibly can.
