SEYMOUR DRIVE – URGENT – APPEAL OBJECTIONS DUE 1st SEPTEMBER
After the illegal tree felling at Seymour Drive, many of the local residents have vigorously opposed the development of the woodland they used to enjoy. The local community submitted Letters of Objection to the Planning Applications to the SHDC and details of the felling’s to the Forestry Commission.
For the Applicant to describe an illegally felled wood as an ‘unused’ or ‘brownfield’ site, or to commission a post-felling Ecology report which blandly notes ‘no trees’ present, displays a disregard for the facts, the local community – and the environment.
The Applicant made a number of Planning Applications, including one for 9. Houses. All the Applications were turned down by the South Hams District Council. In the case of the nine houses, the Applicant has submitted an Appeal to the Planning Inspectorate in the hope of having the Councils decision, in that case, overturned.
If you are uncertain of the procedure, or of how to best construct an effective letter to the Inspector, then there is a simple ‘Planning Guide’ here on the Friends of South Hams Web site.
Please support the community of Seymour Drive, and if you have not already sent a letter objecting to the Application, please consider writing to the Appeal Inspector BEFORE THE 1st September outlining the ‘material planning reasons’ why the Appeal should be refused.
