Firstly, there is the good news that the applications by Gladmans to build on a site in Babbs Lane, and which were refused by DDDC, went to appeal in June. Both application appeals were dismissed by the Inspector. Gladmans do have until 25th September to re appeal but this can only be a legitimate concern with regards to the process, and it is felt that this would be unlikely.
Secondly, work will be commencing on the site at Hall Drive on 25th September, and a letter is to be delivered to all residents located closest to the site. The times of working will be 8a.m. until 17.00p.m. Monday to Friday. Any concerns, queries, whilst this initial phase takes place please contact the site manager at the site office.
Thirdly, all residents should be aware of a Consultation request for Hazardous Substances Consent on Land East or Twin Oaks Farm, Yelt Lane, Doveridge, under reference : 17/00858/HAZ. The Parish Council will be objecting but would urge all residents to voice their opinions by logging onto DDDC planning, under the above reference and sending in their own opinions to DDDC.
