    Oh dear. This is very bad news.

    • RichHartman says:

      …..for the council-taxpayers if the appeal is granted and if the council’s rejection is found to be frivolous because we (not just local protestors) will have to pay the developer’s appeal bill.

  2. Howard Shakespeare says:

    An appeal was to be expected. But weighed against the level of protection on the land, the public objection, and a rejection of 11 to 1 by the councillors, a successful appeal seems unlikely.

    • RichHartman says:

      Howard, the level of public objection and the weight of councillor votes rejecting planning consent will count for nothing in the appeal.

  3. Steve Carr says:

    This was what was said at the meeting.

    “At the conclusion of debate, and prior to members voting on the application, the Director of Legal and Planning Services issued a costs warning and stated that, should members refuse the application contrary to officer advice, the Planning Inspector was likely to give significant weight to the five year land supply issue. RESOLVED that the application be refused. The Director of Legal and Planning Services requested that, in light of members having voted against the officer recommendation, they should agree to summarise the Committee’s reasons for the vote. The meeting adjourned for a number of minutes to allow officers to prepare an appropriate form of wording which is set out in the reasons below and was voted in favour of by members of the Committee.

    Reasons Whilst acknowledging that the Council does not have a five year land supply, the proposed development would have an adverse impact on the open and undeveloped nature of the site detracting from the visual amenity that the Bramcote Ridge and Bramcote Hills as a whole provides in this built up area. Accordingly, the development would conflict with the aims of the National Planning Policy Framework, Policy 16 of the Broxtowe Aligned Core Strategy (2014) and Policies E12, E13, RC5 and RC16 of the Broxtowe Local Plan. Councillors M Handley and L A Ball BEM requested that their votes in favour of the application be noted. ”

    And the vote was not 11 to 1 as both the Conservative Chair of the committee and Conservative member Lydia Ball, requested that their vote in favour of the application be recorded in the minutes.

  4. The council has now received formal notification of an appeal against the refusal of planning permission earlier in the year.
