We now have confidence that the planning decision will be made in just seven days time! – Tuesday 29th March 2011, 2pm.
It has been an incredible journey and this is the next big milestone. We approached the landlords here at the Swinton Estate back in the spring of 2009… now two years ago! Over the last two years we have set up the relationship with Swinton and been in continued discussions with the AONB and the local planning authority. The planning application was completed and finalised in June last year and submitted to the council. We have then been in very detailed discussions with the council since then… the planning application will have been live for nine months when we hear the final outcome.
Although the journey has been incredibly hard work, it has also been very rewarding! It’s very reassuring that the council and their supporting consultees have approached our project with the level of attention and diligence that they have. I genuinely believe that the planning process has refined and shaped the proposal into something even more sympathetic and attuned to its surroundings. The final set of plans are really exciting… they look and feel real… I look at the site and ‘see it’ in its finished form. - let’s hope it goes through! – I can’t wait to get building.
We’ll keep you updated!
