*** WE WON ***
An announcement was made today (20th July 2012) that the Secretary of State has dismissed the developers appeal. There is an 85 page report and a copy of this is available on this link (Public Inquiry Decision). We need to read this to understand exactly what has been said and the grounds upon which it was dismissed and we will advise further soonest.
Meantime thank you to everyone who assisted us throughout the campaign with personal and financial help to get us to this position and to achieve what many saw as a fight against the odds.
Bridge Applications REFUSED AGAIN!!! Shipley Planning Panel rejected 11/03769/MAF and 11/03775/CAC.
At the Planning panel on 18th January 2012 the Councillors again refused these applications by a vote of 6 to 1. Again they stood firm against the Planning Officers who surprisingly again recommended approval.
We WON AGAIN!!! Sty Lane is no longer included in the RUDP.
Following a blunder by the Council Officers none of the outstanding housing sites in the RUDP were saved by the Council and accordingly the Council has removed Sty lane and others from the RUDP leaving these sites open to legal challenge.
We WON!!! Shipley Planning Panel has REJECTED application 11/01203/MAO.
At the Planning Panel on 23rd September 2011 the Panel Members rejected the Sty Lane application by a vote of 6 to 1. We wish to thank them for having the courage to stand against the Planning Officers who were recommending approval.
We also wish to thank all of our supporters for their support and donations to enable us to fight this development.
