Every once in a while, our Parish faces some new development that raises a range of conflicting responses from many different angles. With this note, we want to bring to your attention the need to check the SDNP Planning Portal (Click Here) .
You will all be aware that recent discussions about possible plans to develop the area south of Brookview, by Barlavington Estate have brought to the surface other suggested sites for various levels of housing development. This week we have been made aware that a planning application has appeared on the SDNP Planning Portal for land on the south side of Waltham Park Road. It appears to be for 16 houses, but we are not sure of the detail of this, as yet, in terms of any housing ‘mix’. The reference is SDNP/21/00627/OUT.
The Parish Council will produce its own response to this, and we urge you to communicate your views – as briefly as possible – to the Parish Clerk via our website, as soon as possible. Please feel free to make your own responses within the Consultation process on the SDNP Planning Portal. Please ensure you make your responses within the time limit indicated by the SDNP.
During this lockdown period, it is clearly not appropriate to set up a Parish face-to-face meeting to hear your views, so please watch for emails that may indicate/propose an open “Zoom” meeting to hear all your views. In addition, please pass this note and information on to your neighbours and friends, in case they are not e-mail connected. It is also possible to leave a written response in an envelope with the SMVH Sub-Post office and it will be picked up by the Parish Council.
