Bloor Homes are to Appeal the Refusal of Planning Permission

As you may be aware on 11 December 2019 the Bloor Homes planning application to build 600 + houses on Land North of the Viaduct in Ledbury was rejected by Herefordshire Council

However, Bloor Homes have now made an appeal to the Secretary of State, against Herefordshire Council, for their refusal of planning permission. The notice of appeal is attached below.

The appeal will be determined on the basis of an inquiry. The procedure to be followed is set out in the Town and Country Planning Appeals (Determination by Inspectors) (Inquiry Procedure) (England) Rules 2000, as amended.
See: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/planning-appeals-procedural-guide

If any group or organisation wish to take an active part in the Inquiry, the opportunity is available to apply for what is known as Rule 6 status.  Although unusual, there is also scope for interested individuals to take part on the same basis. Rule 6 status means that you would be able to present your evidence on a formal basis and cross examine the evidence of others.  You can find guidance at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-rule-6-status-on-a-planning-appeal-or-called-in-application

Herefordshire Council and Ledbury Council are going to fight the appeal. The future role of our Parish Council, if any, is still to be determined.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
