Great news from the fields to start 2021.
Two Appeals have recently been refused by the Planning Inspectorate.
Firstly, the appeal by the owner of the plot with the gate and the fencing in the southern AONB field - the fencing is now down and we now await the removal of the wood.
Secondly, the Appeal by the owner of the plot at the entrance to the lower AGLV field with the entrance in Westwood Lane for a Barn, polytunnels and hard standing,
An Enforcement Notice and Stop Notice have been served on the people who've built the fencing and hard-standing on Plot A1 of the lower AGLV field, and brought in 2 shipping containers, pipes and storage drums. Needless to say, they have put in an Appeal against these notices. More recent activity includes extending the hard standing, relaying the track and burning waste brought to the site. All of this has been reported to GBC.
