Isn’t that generally a selling point for those who put them there?

Well it was making a good stab at going back to nature
But that couldn't be allowed so it was leveled and fenced, there is no money in nature! Greed always wins. Just think how much water that lot was drinking up
"....The proposed Silkmore Lane care home could be built on a raised mound which would allow the incorporation of a moat and drawbridge. Might be an appealing security feature for elderly residents ? …"
Hope they don't forget the portcullis. (Some boiling oil might come in handy too.)
Hi All - bit of a desperate shout here, Do any of you live in the Penkside Ward or know anybody who does? The local councilor Ralph Cooke is refusing to call the application in unless a resident of the ward requests it :-( So if a ward resident can send him an e-mail asking for the application (20/31757/FUL) to be called in that would at least stop it being rubber stamped by planning. his e-mail is 'email@example.com' the deadline is 3rd March but I suspect it would have to reach Mr Cooke a few days before that ;-( hope somebody can help :-(
The councillor doesn't need a resident to object for the application to be called in.
The council will have rules determining when applications should go to planning committee. Most councils will refer applications to committee if 10 people object.
There has been a response
The only way to change
Unfortunately that’s me , and I don’t live in the ward
That's interesting- this is all new to me :-( I was told It needed calling in by the ward councillor or 3 members of the planning commitee.
Mr Cooke called me on my way home and the goalposts have moved again he now says he needs at least 6 objections by people in the ward before he will call it in.
and checking on the portal I got the date wrong its by Tuesday! a big ask but nothings impossible. Next step I guess is to hastle the planning committee :-(
You need to alert the media
Get your publicist to take some pictures of you with your arms folded next to the site
Take a change of clothes for use later
Write a press release
Add your mobile number
I understand this application has been called-in.
Great News!!! That's made my day .. cheers Steve_b
Had cause to go to Gayton yesterday. Going up Vicarage Lane was like driving along a smooth, shallow streambed, about 2 inches of water across the width of the lane. About 3/4 way up water was bubbling out of the drain cover to a height of about 10 inches. Massive dirty puddle at the bottom of the lane about a foot deep.
Call in forms submitted.
Actually the application has been called in twice, 1 Ward Cllr 2 Planning Committee Cllrs
Wow - Maybe the tide is turning! excuse the pun
It's going to be interesting to see what the planner recommends as previously they said OK.
The forum is quoted on one of the neighbour responses!
Lead Local Flood Authority Planning Application Response
The Environment Agency objects to the proposed development and recommends refusal of planning permission on the following grounds:
In the absence of an acceptable Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) we object to this application and recommend that planning permission is refused. The submitted FRA by UNDA, ref. 86041-Harixon-SilkmoreLn, dated October 2015, does not comply with the requirements for site-specific FRAs, as set out in Paragraphs 30 to 32 of the Flood Risk and Coastal Change section of the PPG. The FRA does not, therefore, adequately assess the flood risks posed by the development. In particular, the FRA fails to:
Consider flood risk from the River Penk. The Rising Brook does have flood risk associated with it, however, this location is also impacted by the River Penk which needs to be considered as part of the FRA.
Take the impacts of climate change into account. Our requirements for assessing climate change were updated in December 2019, please see below advice for further information.
Consider the requirement for flood emergency planning including flood warning and evacuation of people for a range of flooding events up to and including the extreme event.
Another great bit of news! It will be interesting to see what the developer does now?
