Planning approvals achieved but the saga continues!

Whilst there was some string local opposition, RCC has attained two planning approvals for a client in Wiltshire but the story isn't over.

Planning approvals achieved but the saga continues!

Posted by Richard Cosker

The first permission was for a retail use in a rural area and that was approved under delegated powers and the second was for an exhibition/tourism use and that had to be presented to the planning committee at the request of the local councillor. After an extensive debate the committee approved the application within seven votes to one, all great news.

However one of the objectors has instigated Judicial Review proceedings to challenge the retail use permission and may do the same for the exhibition use. In essence they are challenging the legal basis of the decision made by the council and we now have to wait and see what happens.
