On the 30th December 2014 East Hants refused the White Dirt Farm application and Taylor Wimpey had a 6 month period to register an appeal.
With Land East Of Horndean on the horizon as well as the 5 year plan being robustly met the odds of a successful appeal were only going to diminish with time. The window of opportunity to register an appeal ended yesterday and none has been issued so this puts to bed this issue, hopefully until at least until 2028. Happily this has saved us all unnecessary stress and worry.
In the mean time the call for SHLAA sites will continue so EHDC maintains a register of possible options for the very long term future (this is a legal requirement) and in about 5 years time the ‘First Review’ of the local plan will need to be carried out to make sure we are building enough homes in line with the JCS to satisfy our needs. With LEOH this will most certainly be the case.
In the meantime the signs saying ‘WE SAY NO TO WDF’ can either be changed to ‘WE SAID NO TO WDF’ or put right to the back of the garage.
Well done everyone!
