For background information see the original applications on the SDNPA web site.
This hearing will consider two appeals:
- APP/P1425/C/14/3001421 (relates to application No: SDNP/14/04465/FUL)
APP/P1425/W/15/3028967 (relates to enforcement action following the withdrawal of application No: SDNP/14/02853/FUL )Now withdrawn.
In 2014 a ‘retrospective’ planning application was submitted for:
“change of use of land from agricultural to mixed use of agriculture and game rearing and change of use of redundant agricultural buildings to ancillary storage for the game rearing business, associated landscape planting and retention of an existing brooder house”
It appears that some time later, possibly in 2014 this application was withdrawn. It also appears this withdrawal caused the planning authority to undertake enforcement action. Following this the ‘applicant’ appealed against the enforcement action. As a consequence a planning appeal process started. It appears that a ‘hearing’ is going to be held. I have asked the inspector for the date of the hearing.
From reading the correspondence on the SDNPA website under reference SDNP/14/04465/FUL one can see there is to be an appeal.
