Your time to object to Sand and Gravel Extraction

Pages Lane.

You may be aware that in January, Gloucestershire County Council rejected a planning application by Moreton C Cullimore Ltd for sand and gravel extraction at the site to the south of Pages Lane adjacent to the conservation area of Church End. In July the company made an appeal

against the planning rejection and the appeal application was validated at the beginning of September.

We have just been informed that a planning inspector has now been appointed to independently handle the matter and interested parties have until the 27th November 2017 to lodge any further information or objections.

The appeal will be by written submissions and the inspector has been sent all the documentation surrounding the case that has previously been provided by the Planning Department, RAGE and everyone who made a comment. The inspector also has documentation from Cullimore including his grounds for appealing the decision.

If you want to look at the Cullimore appeal documentation here is a link:

http://planning.gloucestershire.gov.uk/publicaccess/appealDetails.do?activeTab=externalDocuments&keyVal=OTLFMDHN01600

RAGE will be making further comments and objections to the inspector and if anyone wishes to make further new objections you need to send them to the planning inspector who is handling the matter. There are several ways you can do this and anything you provide will be public:

*By email to: west2@pins.gsi.gov.uk. The planning inspectorate reference is: APP/T1600/W/17/3180692 and the case officer is Ann Edmonds.

*On line by going to: https://www.gov.uk/appeal-planning-inspectorate.

You will then need to search for the relevant appeal.

*By post to Ann Edmonds, 3M Kite Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN - quoting the reference noted above and enclosing 3 copies of all correspondence and documents.

Guidance of the appeal procedure can be found here:

The inspector will make a site visit but is likely to be unaccompanied and no representations can be made to her during that visit.

Cullimore has to make final response to any new information by the 11th December 2017.

At this stage we do not know when the final decision will be made on the appeal, and we sincerely hope that reason prevails and it is rejected.
