Extract from Parish Council
The Planning Inspector who has been examining
the draft version of the new Solihull Local Plan has finally
published his report.
This can be seen on the Solihull Council website
The Inspector has found that the draft plan is sound and
Solihull Council are expected to adopt it at the next
Full Council Meeting on Tuesday 3rd December. This means
that the Council ought to reject the current planning
application to build 220 houses at Mount Dairy Farm as
it does not comply with the plan. This would only delay
any development until 2023.
The Inspector has approved the use of Blythe Valley
Business Park for 600 houses to be built between 2013
Further details can be found on the Solihull Council
Solihull Local Plan
If you still have not written to or emailed
Solihull council please do so. The fact that the
proposed development falls outside the timeline of the
replacement plan is no guarantee that it will be refused
planning permission. It is however a very good reason
for objecting to its approval.
2013/1679. Plans to build around 220 houses on land
adjacent to Coppice Walk, Willow Drive and Saxonwood
Road have now been submitted.
At a meeting on Wednesday 6th November 2013, held by the
parish council with support from the residents
association people packed into the village hall to find
out more and to express their concerns. Councillor
Chris Noble began by giving a presentation explaining the
onslaught of local planning applications that are being
put forward due to the delay in SMBC adopting a
replacement Local Plan for the period 2013 to 2028. The
short period between the expiry of the previous plan and
the adoption of a replacement is seen as being a
loophole that is being used by developers to bring
forward plans to develop sites by around 10 years. Mount
Dairy Farm being just one of these sites.
You can download this very informative
presentation from the parish councils website.
Following the presentation, chairman of the residents
association, George Burdett urged everyone to write to
Solihull Council to object to the proposed development.
An information sheet detailing some key points that the residents association
feel valid reasons for objecting was made available to
Download a copy.
The residents association feel it is vital that
anyone concerned about the proposed development write or
email the planning department at Solihull council
without delay, the more people that object with good
reason the better chance we have.
Finally those that attended were given the
opportunity to ask questions and give their views on the
planned development of Mount Dairy Farm. These were
unanimously against the development.
