Villages like Goostrey are joining together to sign a petition to “Put on hold for 12 months decisions by the Planning Inspectorate in respect of the speculative developments by Gladman and others which are outside the settlement boundaries of the old District Plan and which are being pursued because the new Local District Plan has not yet been finalised”.
” I am asking you to please support my campaign to halt for a 12 month period decisions by the Planning Inspectorate on these green field sites where building would not normally have been permitted under the old Local Plans and allow the democratic procedure to draw to a conclusion. Sites that accord with the NPPF and are identified in the Local Plan should ensure that sites outside the new settlement boundaries will be better protected by local plan policies and supported by the local communities. This approach will more closely reflect the Localism agenda in a meaningful and consistent manner. PLEASE VOTE to help my community and the many others similarly affected to determine our own future.”
