18. Planning application 21/02013/FUL

Following the public meeting via zoom (08/06/21),and the 57 emails received by the Clerk the Councillors have called a meeting to discuss this planning application. the Parish Council wish to put in an objection to CWAC Planning on the following grounds:

  • Planning has been refused many times in the last 15 years, the most recent 2015, with an unsuccessful appeal in 2016....

  • Green belt... not brown field as stated in the planning application

  • The land is on a flood zone 2 & 3

  • The land has not been occupied constantly , again as stated in the application,

  • Original planning condition was for a storage building, to be removed if no longer required, why hasn’t this been followed up?

  • If passed for 1 dwelling and 1 caravan how will this be enforced?

  • There appears to be no environmental impact report with the application, which is as it stands is a field and a pond,

  • There are no special circumstances to support this application

19. Co-option of new Parish Councillor, following the resignation of Cllr B Holloway

We had 3 applicants for this position, of which and details they had submitted to the clerk had been circulated prior to the meeting. Cllr R Stubbs had emailed the clerk with his nomination in his absence.


Cllrs were asked by the clerk to nominate 1 of the 3 applicants, all five Cllrs nominated the same applicant, & Cllr Stubbs, in his absence had nominated the same , so no voting was required as a full majority.
