Just a quick note, I've heard from Patrick Hargreaves that the appeal by Muir Housing was dismissed. Green Lane is saved - for now at least. CDC has to pay costs, yet to be agreed.

That's fantastic news. We need to keep a watchful eye over all our other green field sites too. I've been through the Craven Herald this week and can't find any public notices about the forthcoming LDF drop-in sessions - disappointing as the planning department had promised to try to improve communication. I will write a letter to CH this week to publicise dates.

thats excellent news well done everyone involved in the NODISC campaign and also everyone else who wrote a letter or email to the planning inspectorate,
common sense prevailed in the end.
still cannot get my head round why craven district council have to pay costs and not muir housing?
message for liz/dawn
anyone know when and where the next NODISC meeting is?
i will certainly be going to the LDF drop in sessions(i urge as many as possible to go to these sessions)remember south craven school turnout

Great news about Green Lane - another victory!

As for the next NODISC meeting, at the moment my thinking is that we should maybe wait until the drop in sessions, and then we can work out more clearly what we are up against.

Also, people should be aware that these individual sessions in each village are mainly to discuss that actual village - so if you want to know what is going on in all three villages, it would be pertinent to attend all three sessions.

The sessions will run from 2pm till 8pm on the following days:
* Thursday 12th March, St. Peters Church, Crosshills
* Wednesday 18th March, Sutton Park Pavilion
* Tuesday 24th March, Glusburn Institute

I have just heard from a reliable source that Muir Housing is going to take the Planning Inspectorate's Appeal decision to The High Court - in other words, he is going to continue to fight the decision in order to get his planning permission. NODISC will be arranging a meeting in due course but we must all stay vigilant in any way we can.

Hi Guys,
it was indeed a fantastic result for us all. I have investigated the likely outcome for the Miur high court appeal and am more than confident personaly that they will NOT reverse this. Even if the highcourt were to view thier appeal favourably then it would simply be returned to the inspectorates office for a second review to be carried out by a second inspector. They would not be recieving any fresh oinformatio bnadn would only be going through all of the existing information/presentations at hand currently. Therefore it is highly unlikely that the decision would be any different a second time around. Unless of course there were internal politics at the inspectorates office but from what I can gather they are a tight happy bunch.
So it looks like these villages are safe for now, no nasty property developers will be invading our green land! Enjoy that wonderful view out your front window Graham!!!

Basil housing is no longer the big story. There is no money to build it.
Where has all the council money gone and how is it going to affect South Craven, should take precedence.
We are now in a difficult situation whereby the decisions our councillors have made are going to seriously impact on our services and pockets. A lot of money is no longer available and we haven't had a satisfactory explanation as to why or councillor resignations (staff do what they are told).
As a result locally we are going to lose our toilets and free parking. That's not fair.

in reply to where has all the council money gone?
i think a hell of a lot of it has gone on council employee pension schemes
which we the tax payer are funding
think everyone would have a massive shock if the figures were ever made public!

Just received the following email this morning - another thing for the Taxpayer to bail out!

"I have just heard from Philip Barrett that a new Appeal has been lodged against
the 2nd CDC Planning decision in Nov. This is on grounds of non determination by CDC because it failed to issue the decision notice!!"

Crass incompetence, paid for by the taxpayer!

I've received the following details from Patrick Hargreaves (thanks Patrick)...

The Case Reference on the Planning Inspectorate website for the latest Planning Appeal for housing at Green Lane/Black Abbey Lane is: 2098096. This is an Appeal against the decision taken in November 2008 by Craven District Council Planning Committee, rejecting Application 9016, which was essentially the same as the Application 32/2008/8572 which was the subject of the previous Appeal, heard on 16-17 December 2008 and dismissed in February 2009 by the Planning Inspector appointed by The Secretary of State.

Go to, or search for the Planning Portal (Planning Inspectorate Website)
> 'Search for a Case'
> 2098096
and it will bring up the latest Appeal.

The Appeal, by Muir Housing, is based partly upon Craven District Council's omission to issue a decision notice on their judgement to reject the Planning Application 9016 by CDC's Planning Committee - our elected representatives - in November, (which was witnessed by many of us as Council Tax payers,) a rejection decision which was affirmed at a later Planning Committee Meeting at CDC, Granville Street, Skipton (which was witnessed by may of us as Council Tax payers).

just recieved the letter from the council saying muir housing are going to contest the decision by the planning inspectorate regarding Green lane development
could anybody please tell me if the decision by the inspectorate had gone the other way and the development had been passed, could we as the public or cdc have contested the decision. like muir housing(and skipton properties) are doing when the decision has gone against them
i would be interested to know.
if they are allowed to appeal against the decision then surely it works both ways and
also like basil states earlier in the thread there will be not much new evidence submitted on either side
i have written to both muir housing and skipton properties regarding why they are appealing against the decision , i am yet to recieve a reply from either after 2 weeks(great PR you two companys have LOL)
I personally think in the current economic climate there is no way that new developments will get the go ahead
