The Parish Council have decided to raise no objections to the planning application for the new electrical substation required for the Affordable Housing.
Last night’s Extraordinary Council Meeting, chaired by Terry Hanner, was attended by Peter Ramsdale of Saffron Housing. He explained the background to the application and the problems caused by EDF’s failure to survey the site properly. He then answered questions from councillors and residents.
Residents were then invited to comment on the application and several spoke against it. However members of the council could not support these objections. They therefore voted, unanimously, to raise no objection to the application.
STOP PRESS The meeting of the Area Planning Committee held on May 4th decided to defer any decision on the application so there will be a further delay before the housing can be occupied.
