Outline application for residential development (2 x plots) with associated infrastructure.
The outline application for two residential properties in Green Belt land was refused, but has been appealed.
The Society objected on principle to the proposed residential development within the Green Belt, and was not convinced by the argument that this was needed to enable repairs to the (listed) walled garden and gardner’s cottage, since the RAC has owned these buildings for more than 100 years and should have budgeted for the cost of maintaining them in good condition during that time.
The Society has written again to the Planning Inspectorate re-iterating our objections and concerns. This second letter can be found here.
