Recommendation of SMBC Planning Officers
Posted 31st August 2014
Solihull Planning Committee meet on Wednesday 3rd
September from 6pm to decide
the fate of Mount Dairy Farm. Its officers have
recommended that Bloore Homes application to build 220
houses be approved. Quote......
The previous planning application was also
refused due to the inadequacy of the technical work
required in order to demonstrate no harm would arise as
a result of the development due to drainage/flooding
issues. This technical work has now been updated and
uses a robust methodology that can also be used to
assess the effects of the drainage from the adjacent
site. This has now concluded that the development will
not have a harmful effect on drainage/flooding in the
It is considered that the two previous reasons for
refusal have now been overcome and planning permission
can be granted.
For the reasons outlined above it is recommended that,
subject to the
applicants entering into a section 106 agreement, the
application be approved.

As I understand it the term 'arse about face' seems appropriate here.
SMBC adopt a housing plan that is passed as sound by The
Planning Inspector. Developers appeal against the plan
saying it does not provide enough housing. A former
parking adjudicator who has worked his way up to high
court judge finds in favour of the developers.
An appeal to the High Court by Solihull against the
judge's decision is scheduled for October**. The
developers submit the same plan as a new application.
Solihull decides to accept or refuse planning permission
in early September. So should right or wrong be affected
by the costs of due process? And Is it best to just give
it up as a bad job for a simpler life?
The question is do SMBC think they got it wrong the
first time if NOT then they should refuse permission
until it is decided otherwise.
