Great News!

Under his powers in section 77 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 the application will be referred to him directly instead of being dealt with by the Local Planning Authority.

A local inquiry will be held the details of which will follow.

Congratulations to all those who wrote to key individuals, especially Eric Pickles himself, but also John Bercow who has been very supportive.
