Following requests from the Parish Council and residents for the quarry at Rudheath Lodge, New Platt Lane, to be determined by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government the decision has now been taken that the application should be decided by the local councils.
Therefore the decisions to approve the proposal by both CEC and CWaC will stand.
“In deciding whether to call in this application, the Secretary of State has considered his policy on calling in planning applications. This policy gives examples of the types of issues which may lead him to conclude in his opinion that the application should be called in. The Secretary of State has decided not to call in this application. He is content that it should be determined by the local planning authority.”
