On Wednesday 8th June, Mid Suffolk District Council resolved to grant permission for 280 dwellings and a 60 bed care home at Eye. CCE supported the scheme with advice on traffic, transport, drainage, flood risk and utilities. The project also required significant input into the production of a Development Brief led by Pegasus Planning Group. Both the application and Development Brief were heard at the committee meeting.
Over the course of a 18 months, the consultant team was involved in public consultation and a series of stakeholder meetings with the Planning & Highway Authorities, local people and the Town Council. The process enabled a thorough examination of the facts and shaped the design and access to the development to minimise impact at known pressure points on the local highway network. For more information please contact Rob Evans at the Newmarket Office.
The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector and upheld an Appeal decision to grant permission. The primary reason of refusal was highways based, but having proven in evidence that the County Councils arguments were based on flawed analysis the Inspector was able to grant permission. Notwithstanding the highways success, the Planning Authority were also found to be in breach of Neighbourhood Plan Policy in refusing the application. Decision received on 8th January.
Another Appeal success where the Inspector agreed that refusal on flood risk grounds could not be sustained. Decision received on 27th January.
