6 January 2014…..Sorry to have slacked off somewhat on the Planning front. Too many irons in the fires of burning concern and too little to give to anything in the end.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I am pleased to bring you reason to feel happy on the officially most depressing day of the year (6th January apparently). The latest application to redevelop the Medina House site is REFUSED.
Christmas takes so many eyes off the ball so there were fewer than five letters of support for it. There were loads of objections, but as it was not recommended for approval, this was not a factor for officers taking the decision under delegated powers. The earlier version of this article misled you! Had there been more than five letters of support, given the recommendation to refuse, then it could have gone to Committee.
I think we all knew this industrial design for a domestic purpose on our hallowed Esplanade was a fairly obvious no-no. Ruth Rose has been diligent where I have been slacking off. And she has informed some of us today of the BHCC Decision Notice she has a copy of. You can view it HERE.
Taghan indicates he is to appeal. Watch this space.
