Secretary of State refuses to revoke the Germany Beck planning permission

Monday 23rd May 2016

The Secretary of State does not consider it 'expedient' to revoke the planning permission and the letter refers to the "considerable cost of paying compensation" that would fall on the Local Authority in the event of revocation.

Thank you to all those residents who wrote to the authorities supporting our request.

No decision has yet been made on the Parish Council's request for an EIA Screening Direction but we will keep you informed if any decision is received.
