How can harm be proved before the act?
It is not surprising that Gladman have included Jodrell Bank Observatory in their Statement of Case for the forthcoming Appeal. Gladman say that no evidence has been put forward to show that the proposal will unacceptably impair JBO’s work. Professor Garrington must find it more than frustrating that his objection and risk of harm is not reason enough to protect JBO’s future.
“2.2.10 The application is not contrary to policy PS10 because it has not been evidenced that the proposed development will unacceptably impair the efficiency of the Jodrell bank radio telescope. Policy PS10 places the onus on the council to consult with Jodrell Bank Observatory and, where JBO posits an objection, to demonstrate that the proposed development will have an unacceptable impact on the operation of the telescope. However, CEC has no evidence before it to support a reason for refusal on the basis that the application cause conflict with policy PS10. ”
