APPLICATION ‘CALLED IN’
Our thanks to Councillor Jeffrey James who has now ‘called in’ the application to the Planning Committee. This is good news indeed as it will enable transparent and visible scrutiny of the application. The next date set for a Planning Committee is the 6th June but we are yet to hear if Application Ref: 2013/0035/FUL will be on the agenda for that meeting. We will inform you as soon as we know.
Thanks also to Andrew RT Davies AM who issued a strongly worded Press Release supporting our objections and for writing a formal letter of objection to the Vale Council. The Steering Group issued a Press Release which was picked up and included in an article by Tim Chapman in The Cowbridge Gem.
Time being of the essence the Steering Group contracted a planning consultant on Monday 13th May. The consultant’s brief is to make contact with the Head of Planning at Vale of Glamorgan Council, register his involvement and formulate a written objection and represent our interests at the Planning Committee. We have already received and reviewed the report and will be submitting it on Monday 20th when we will also release a copy to you. The fee for this work will be £750 plus VAT and disbursements.
