Development Land at Bendish Lane

March 8th, 2018By

The controversial 14.5 acre development land at Bendish lane is currently on the market with Savills.

Prospective bidders are welcome to contact the Parish Council and read its minutes for further background information.

Following on from attendance at the Local Plan Hearings regarding this site the Parish Council participated in the hearing and maintains its objection that the site (SP2) is unsuitable and should not be allocated for development.

From the  hearing it is clear that the policy wording for the site SP2 will be amended to protect the open space in accordance with the recent appeal decision.

The proposed settlement boundary will include the whole site SP2 but will exclude the byway. The proposed settlement boundary will be redrawn to exclude the recreation ground.

Policy SP2 (Settlement Hierarchy)is being revised for further consultation.
