Bloor Homes Appeal Councils Refusal for 220 Houses
Planning Application reference No: 2013/1679 - Posted 26 March 2014

Bloor Homes are appealing against Solihull Council's decision to refuse planning permission for 220 homes off Tanworth Lane in Cheswick Green. There will now be a public inquiry with an Inspector from Bristol having the final decision. Comments already made by residents will be forwarded to the Inspector.
Any additional comments, should be be sent in triplicate, to Leanne Palmer, The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/26, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN quoting their reference number APP/Q4625/A/14/2214626.  Copies to arrive before 30/4/2014.
It will be possible to give your views online but you will need the Planning Inspectorate appeal reference number (APP) shown above.

Commenting on the news Independent Ward Cllr Linda Brown said that she would be vigorously opposing the appeal and that Bloor homes have a fight on their hands with the local community. A 220 home development coming forward 10years early threatens to undermine the local plan and would be very bad not only for Cheswick green but also the wider area.
