The Incredible Sulks?

Despite the victorious outcome of the Parrs Lane Appeal Decision by Kevin Ward, an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State, announced on 22 March 2018, it’s been almost two weeks of sulking silence from the perpetrators of the Local Plan in 2013. Perhaps they, the local Conservatives, still can’t believe the community and the Aughton Residents Group fought them for six years and won?

Just goes to show what can be done with spirit and determination? And what better than to read that “None of the triggers for Plan B have been activated and the proposed development conflicts with Policies GN2 and RS6. It would involve the loss of a significant area of BMV agricultural land and conflicts with Policy EN2. 112. The Council can demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable housing sites. Relevant policies in the Local Plan are not out of date in terms of paragraph 49 of the NPPF or for any other reason. Under these circumstances the presumption in favour of sustainable development contained in paragraph 14 of the NPPF does not apply”.

A historical decision for a historical site!
