Good news from the planning committee - they passed our application, unanimously. They were pleased to do so – perhaps a welcome relief from their usual diet of controversial cases. We already knew the Town Council support us, and it is good to have such a clear sign of support from the District Council as well.

This news does not mean we can just tick off planning permission and move on to the next task. There will be a continuing dialogue with Planning as we seek to meet their conditions, and the same is true of the Environment Agency. There is much still to do! But it is an important step forward.

Here we are outside the Council Chamber after the decision!
