PLANNING APPLICATION APP/N4720/W/17/3187334: Field Rear of 33 to 40 Church Close, LS21 1LN – UPDATE

As you will be aware I have been discussing with the Council my concerns, and those of residents, around the appeal on the above land that was granted at appeal stage.  

Recently at the Site Allocations Plan Inquiry when I was arguing against the allocation of the land next to Church Close I am happy to advise that the Council announced they will be legally challenging the decision regarding the appeal that was granted in respect of the above planning application. At this stage I have not been advised of the exact grounds of challenge but the Council do feel that there is inconsistency in the decisions that have been made on at least one other planning appeal that was refused recently and they would like to test the arguments in court.
