We have certainly been giving the Planning Authority plenty of work. So far there have been over 200 objections sent in by local residents opposed to the scheme.
Although the published deadline for sending in objections was 12 December 2014, the planning website says ‘The County Council will take into account all representations which are received up until three days before the proposal is considered for decision.‘ So, if you had meant to send in an objection but just didn’t get around to it, there is still time.
Hilltop Action Group Committee has also been busy sending in objections – 12 so far. We have still got a few more to complete and send in.
The ones submitted so far are (over 60 pages in total):
- Validity of Noise Assessment Report
- Accuracy of Mineral Application Form
- Communities Affected by the Hilltop Scheme
- Geological & Hydrogeological Issues
- Inconsistent & Missing Drawings
- Water Attenuation Lagoons & Water Discharge
- Public Rights of Way
- Air Quality
- Health Impact
- Transport Assessment
The full text of these can be found from the menu on the left.
At the moment we have no idea when the Planning Committee meeting, which will make the decision on the application, will be. Scheduled dates for the next few Planning Committee meetings are: 9 February , 9 March , 20 April , 11 May , 8 June, 13 July, 10 August and 7 September. We will probably only get about five days notice.
