A huge thank you to the 108 people who came out to the Public Meeting to discuss the Gladman Land Planning Application 9/2017/0095.
There were representatives from both Aston Parish Council and Weston Parish Council as well as District Councillors and our County Councillor. This shows the depth of feeling and support that this latest development has evoked.
We need to keep up the momentum of tonight and when you get home in the coming days, please go out and speak to other members of your family.
Encourage them to get involved and send their own letter of objection in.
But please please make sure it is distinctly individual, otherwise it will not count and will be clumped together and only count as one objection.
Ensure that you take note of the DO NOT list of items that we have listed on the green flier that was delivered in the last week, as it may make your letter of objection invalid.
Speak to your neighbours who live either side of you. Doing that you have instantly tripled the number or even quadrupled the number of people who can send their objections in.
If we get a huge response, it will take the SDDC planning Department longer to read and consider each letter or email.
This will work in our favour as it will delay the planning application being considered at committee. They legally have to give each letter the same consideration.
If it is sufficiently delayed, we may manage to have the planning application meeting that makes a decision one way or the other, after Local Plan Part 2 has been adopted. This will help our case.
Once Local Plan Part 2 has been adopted then the criteria and decision making process will be different from the current situation.
It is Local Plan Part 2 that is relevant to any decision making process regarding the villages of Aston and Weston.
Watch out for further updates on line both here and also on the website and posters around the village.
