Appeal Update



The Secretary of State’s (SoS) office had been expected to announce a decision on the Waverley Lane, Lower Weybourne Lane and Monkton Lane appeals by 8 November. We learned today that the decision has been postponed, and is not now expected until 18 January 2018.

In December 2016, a Written Ministerial Statement was issued by the Minister for Housing, which supported the use Neighbourhood Plans in determining housing supply. This statement has been challenged by a group of developers, and the challenge is now being heard under Judicial Review (JR).

The SoS decision on the three planning appeals will not now be determined until a judgement from the JR has been handed down.
