Cannon Sponsor Area 8 Pony Club Eventing Weekend.

We were approached some time ago by the Suffolk Hunt Pony Club to sponsor one of their cross country fences at the annual Area 8 Pony Club eventing weekend. If you are not familiar with the equestrian scene, then this annual event is somewhat of a big deal which brings together all of the Area 8 branches covering Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex. Each year the event is held at a different location and is hosted by one of the inter branch teams. Feeling somewhat generous we opted to sponsor a jump for the whole year and managed to bag the water jump complex. If you’ve witnessed Burley or Hickstead you’ll know that the water complex always brings the biggest crowds due to the chance of there being some unfortunate dunkings!

280 dwellings and 60 bed care home get go ahead at Eye, Mid Suffolk

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.

650 Dwellings at Cringleford

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.

350 Dwellings at Attleborough

Another Appeal success where the Inspector agreed that refusal on flood risk grounds could not be sustained. Decision received on 27th January.
