Planning and the Hope School Site

The Parish Council and I have finally received the update on this we have been waiting for the Hope School site. The email said:

I wanted to reassure you that although all seems to have gone quiet since we submitted the full planning application for Hope Village Hall in April, work has been continuing in the background with the planning team and consultees to proceed to the point of determination.

We have undertaken additional ecology surveys, received comments on changes required to the site plan from the Trees Team and received feedback on suggested changes from the urban design team. We are now working on a slightly revised layout and property designs, none of which we perceive as detrimental to the overall scheme and ambitions of the local community.

I anticipate the scheme will be considered by the Southern Planning Committee in January 2022.

This is slightly disappointing as it is longer than we all hoped for, considering the lack of locally affordable housing and smaller houses for sale. I will keep enquiring about this. It needs to move on - urgently
