Hod Hall Lane Travellers’ site application update

by Gareth Wilson on 17 April, 2009

The Parish Council Planning Committee met on 8th April at 7.00 to discuss among other items the application to put one travellers pitch on the site in Hod Hall Lane. About 40 members of the public attended. I was able to explain the procedures to them and that only planning matters could be raised in objection to the application. I pointed out that I was unable to state my own position until I had heard all the arguments at the East Cambs Planning Committee. Pauline, however is not a member of the East Cambs Planning Committee and she told the meeting that she would call in the application to the full Planning Committee if the officers were going to give it approval and would write her own objections to the proposal, in particular stating that the new application was so similar to the previous rejected application that with such a large utility building and the retention of the original barn it looked like a site for four or more pitches not just one.
